Today, our team is both sad and excited: Chuck Grimmett, our product manager, is leaving the Crash team to pursue an exciting opportunity.
I remember one of the first times I had a call with Chuck. He was showing me how to use Metabase to pull data (one of many things he is extremely knowledgable about), but he ended the call by giving me a personalized book recommendation.
Chuck is a man of few words, so in his honor, I won’t write a lot. But I do want to thank him for inspiring our entire team to work out loud, to remain steadfast through harder days, to work hard at what we do in order to become a master.
In the year we worked together, Chuck has taught me all I know about SQL, updated countless graphics on our blog, given me math lessons, shared words of encouragement, showed me different ways to mix drinks and make food, helped me better manage my task list, and much more. He even once showed me the difference between normal kayak paddles and the paddles he carved (for the kayak he built):
We’ll miss you, Chuck. We’re really excited about your newest adventure. You’ve made an impact on our team, and we’re grateful for everything you’ve built and inspired at Crash.
Keep doing (and building, and cooking, and writing, and carving) great things.
Thanks for stopping by. We’ll be back next week with more updates. If you’re not getting our weekly newsletter (we share counter-cultural career advice, updates, and more), sign up below!
