I am now open to working anywhere in the world.”
Aside from thanking Meta for all the opportunities they provided, she said, “I am thankful that I had the opportunity to experience Meta.
I learned a great deal during my time there. After 1.5 decades at Microsoft, it was a major cultural and engineering shift for me and I can truly say that those I worked with lived the company values – be bold, be open, build awesome stuff, and so on.
As a member of the FPM Metamate team and a fellow FB TPM, I will miss the opportunity to work with you. It is my sincere hope that our paths cross again soon in this grand-but-little world of technology and, until then, I hope each of you has a wonderful journey.”
