I noticed there's a project manager position open at paizo (listed 15th June).

Jessica Price also doesn't seem to be listed here any more.

Maybe it's just part of the restructure precipitated by Wes's departure and marks a change in role that hasn't been fully updated and she'll appear there shortly?

If not, I want to acknowledge what she has brought to Paizo over the last few years. I'm sure there's lots of behind the scenes stuff we never saw that made things better, but besides "project management", her creative input into developing Golarion lore and her dynamic presence on the forums have been fantastic for the community.

Hopefully you're still around, but if not - good luck in your future, post-Paizo endeavours, Jessica. You're a terrific teacher and brilliant writer.

O_O

I hadn't heard! Now I'm sad.

That said, I second everything you've said. I'm glad I got to meet Ms. Price again at PaizoCon, possibly for the last time.

But...i wanted to meet her at paizocon....

Maybe they are looking for a second project manager with the upcoming Starfinder release?

EDIT: Guess that wouldn't explain her absence from the contact page, though. Well, if she has moved on, I second the OPs best wishes for her. The Qadira release was one of the best Paizo products I've seen in quite some time!

Also, Jessica's user page has her listed as "Contributor", rather than "Project Manager".

I continue to hope that this is all an error, for while she can sometimes get my back up with her blunt, forthright, take-no-sh*t attitude, I also find I learn a lot in the process (and I've told her this before), and I think it makes me a more open, understanding person.

;_;

Jessica is an awesome person, manager, and writer, I always love seeing what she has to say and I'm delighted whenever I see one of her posts or a project she has worked on. She's one of the main reasons I admire Paizo so much, I will be very sad if this means we're going to be seeing less of her and seeing less of her impact around here.

Hoping for more info, but yeah this looks like she is gone.

Crap. Just one of the best people in her convictions and abilities. If she is gone she will be sorely missed!

EDIT: The employee Golem icon is gone from her posts as well. :(


Maybe she needed a break for a while. I would imagine that project management is a very stressful position.

Okay, I read thread title in a very *grimdark* fashion and am hoping for the best.

Jessica, I loved meeting you at PaizoCon. I hope you're still with us, but if you are not... We miss you!

Hmm

I'm a little surprised by Paizo's silence about this.

My understanding is that, when someone leaves, they tend to make a big deal out of saying goodbye to them (e.g. Wes). Could the low-key aspect of this mean that she left under not-so-amicable circumstances?

EDIT: So apparently this happened a little while ago. Her last post here was on June 6th, and that Project Manager job has been open since the 15th.

Or that she didn't want a big to do made of it.

I'm like that, I'd rather my last day be like any other day. :-)

Recent staff change-over is...worrying....to me.

I've really enjoyed her creative contributions and insight on various panels. I especially admire her advocacy, as Kate so accurately said above.

Hope she finds success in future endeavors!

I'm not. Paizo tends to be very private about specifics in organizational changes.

It is also the weekend.


Well that would suck. I like her.

The change happened a little more than a week ago. I wouldn't worry I believe the company is still in good (really the same) hands. I see change as a good thing adding new blood is good for creativity and to bring out new ideas. All companies do it.

Jessica, I too want to express how much I enjoyed meeting you at PaizoCon this year. Thank you (and Adam) for taking the time to chat with HMM and me about Seattle area restaurants. Your panel presentations were fantastic and fun (props and languages!) I think I speak for the whole community when I say that we wish you well, and hope that we'll get to see you again next year anyway.

Paizo and Jessica have indeed parted ways. If you have encouraging, thankful or otherwise positive things to post, please do! However, speculation with regards to her departure is not appropriate.

While I occasionally found Jessica's posts a bit too snippy to innocent comments, I largely found her opinions nuanced and enjoyable, and I greatly enjoyed the panel of hers I attended at PaizoCon. I'm sad to hear she's moved on, and wish her the best in the future.

That's a shame. Best to her. At least I'll still get to see her fixing the world one tweet at a time.

Too bad she didn't get a nice big send off like Wes did.


It was nice bumping into you at Gen Con last year, I only wish I had put it together in my brain quicker so I could have talked with you for a minute.

I'd wish you luck with whatever you are going to do next but I doubt you will need it... whomever tries to fill your shoes will need it though. :)

I'm like that to, but you forgot the "+ cake" at the end.

Best of luck to Jessica! I'm sorry to see her go, and I hope her new adventure is a success!


I wanted to meet her so bad....

You still can, of course. She's still listed as a Gen Con Industry Insider this year, for example.


Good luck, Jessica.

My bad, folks!

Sock puppet alias joking aside, I hope she doesn't drop off the face of the earth- her posts were always worth a read, and the work she's put in (and, as a contributor, very well might still do) speaks for itself.

Thanks for giving us that stellar Qadira book before you took your leave, Jessica!

I've been listening to her PaizoCon panels on the Know Direction Podcast. She is an amazingly intelligent and creative person. What a loss for Paizo.


I hope her future endeavors are fabulous.

Jessica's pretty active on Twitter; you could likely follow her there if you want updates on things she's doing. (As a bird of ill omen, I assume you tweet a lot).

Spoiler:
Did I make this post just to rehash a Moana joke? Yes. Yes I did.

You're welcome. ;-)

That Tweet "Following in the footsteps of some of my creative team colleagues, I've left Paizo" is interesting. Who else has left Paizo recently besides Wes and Jessica?

Not recently, but Sean Reynolds and Liz Courts have also moved on, just off the top of my head.

And yeah, Qadira was a treat, and I hope she manages to find new opportunities to express herself and wow people again wherever she ends up next.

I hope Jessica will post on these boards from time to time. She is a great person full of energy and convictions both deeply seated and deeply thought out. Though I have not always been in complete agreement with her, I know she is the one person I will turn to if her strength and advice is needed to advance the worthy causes she believes in

Thank you for EVERYTHING :-)


Maybe someone else has left and we haven't found out about it yet.

Since she was following in their footsteps, they have to have already left.


Just because she knows about it, doesn't mean we currently do.

All I know is my Paizo world is a little less brighter without Jessica in it...

Good luck Jessica! :)

On the other hand, if she and Liz and Wes are all collaborating on something, then the 3rd party world will soon get brighter.

Collaborating? Oh just say it, plotting.
