Kismet remains Senior Dog, reporting to me.
Kenneth continues to report to kalluna, but has been promoted to Lead Dachshund. Our new hire, Babbage, will report to me, with a dotted line to Kenneth* for Dachshund specific training. As he is a puppy hire, Babbage comes to the household with no relevant industry experience, but the AsApp assured me that “he has the passion to excel in this role”.
Because he has shown no abilities in software development or testing, he has been slotted in to a PM role.
*HR assures me that as I am Babbage’s manager, anti-nepotism rules do not prevent him from reporting to Kenneth for additional duties.
