    A lot of truth is said in jest.

    Great thread @Cheetosdust ! I go the the 50% chance that you were not interviewing yourself. :D:D:p:cool:

    When you say "Old User", @dsmonteiro do you feel aged like a good wine? :p sorry couldn't resist the roast. It took a long time to come up with something worth it..

    Thank you very much @Cheetosdust for this interview with @dsmonteiro! You are two incredible people here in the community. The story of @dsmonteiro and what it achieved by going from being a user to now working for oneplus is an example for everyone that we must pursue our dreams! I hope one day to meet you both in person at a Oneplus event and share some Pastéis de Belém and francesinhas! I wish you all the best and stay safe! Grande abraço e muito obrigado a ambos!

    Through a series of fortunate events. I had been a moderator and a community expert for a while and I had worked closely with the Community Managers, both @Adam Krisko and @David Y..
    I found myself between jobs in 2018, after moving from Porto to the countryside. I received a proposal to work for a marketing company in Shenzhen. It ended up not happening, David Y. heard about it and invited to be part of OnePlus' Community team instead, an invite I was quite excited to receive and accept, and the rest is history.

    Definitely. As a user, you can say anything you want, within the forum rules. When you're part of the staff, anything you say can be seen as an official stance by the company.

    30 pieces of silver.

    Isn't Pete a celebrity already? :p

    Well, I was already bald when I joined the forums, so there isn't much more aging to take place.

    You bring the pastéis de Belém, I'll bring the francesinhas. ;)

    Expanding on what I mentioned above, it started back in 2013, when I first read about OnePlus on day one. That eventually led me to join the forums in March 2014, make a whole lot of friends, become a mod, leave the mod team, become a community expert, leave my job as a quality manager and technical manager, get married, move to the countryside and then join OnePlus. The last few years have been quite the ride. ;)

    Believing in the company. I've said this a few times already, for me OnePlus is so much more than a company or a job. It's a community I believe in.

    What ?
    30 "pieces of silver" would be worth between $185 and $216 in present-day value (USD)...so $200 ~ $230 ish adjusted to inflation.....source Wikipedia

    I was hoping it would be atleast a million dollars.
    This is the worst trade deal in history ! :rolleyes:

    Goodluck with the job !
    Now show us the OnePlus Z

    @dsmonteiro here's my set of questions

    What's the biggest mistake (form your POV) OnePlus has ever made?
    What is the mistake(form your POV) they are (still) doing now?
    What is the biggest good thing OnePlus has ever made?
    What is the one good thing you appreciate they are doing now?

    So, basically, both the good and bad, as greatest of each and current of each.

    Ahh these cleared things up. And yes these are really fortunate events that led to you where you are now. Most people say (including me) that they hate their job, but I'm really happy for you, that you got to be a part of a company you really believe in and the community that you heart the most. Cheers to an amazing future ahead 🍻🍻
