bildstorm's Journal: Relocating and keeping my job

Journal by bildstorm

I love my job. For me it's the best job around. I get to sit in this great role where I get to explore my tech interests with Java, XML, and metadata, yet I also get to work as a producer making all kinds of cool games for mobile phones and (eventually) other wireless devices. It's fun!

The problem is that I'm getting married in September. I currently live in Finland, but my fiancée is looking for jobs in the U.S. Now, we have an office in the States, but it's in Austin. I'd prefer to live near D.C., as I have coordinate with content providers on the East Coast, and also projects in the U.K.

The big deal is going to be how I can keep my job and do this move. I currently do most of my work with U.S. companies as is. I'm wondering if maybe I can set myself up as a telecommuter. We've been discussing the possibility of moving our office, and that'd be great, but I could telecommute before that. I spent two weeks on a business trip there and telecommuting worked out really well.

Well, I guess we'll see, but if anyone has any suggestions on how to go about getting telecommuting approved, please let me know.
