So a big dream comes true for us: We're going to live in San Francisco for a while. Our plan is to stay there for two to three years. A lot of people keep asking how come Michael got a job offer in San Francisco. Because this story is kind of adventurous I'm going to tell you right here. Those who already know just skip the next paragraph.
In April a former colleague gave us a call to ask Michael if he was willing to work for his current company in Munich. Michael initially declined because he didn't want to change his job again. Indeed he had only been employed at Softlab for one and a half years. Moreover, he explained that he couldn't do it because he wanted to work in the U.S. for some time and he was waiting for such an offer. The colleague was like: "No problem, just work at our branch in San Francisco." At first we didn't take it seriously, but a few days later the manager called and repeated the offer. That's how it all got started. Finally, Michael had a firm job contract.
Michael has an American contract, meaning he follows American working conditions. That is, for instance, 10 days of vacation a year, American medical insurance, and so on. The company Michael is going to work for develops new ideas for the Internet. Michael says:'Now I get money for what I like to do anyways.'
