Swedish born CA transplant looking to do the move with my family, wife and 7yo daughter, hopefully by late summer if not earlier. As for now we're targeting the Manchester/Nashua areas, but are opening to anything really. My wife is a programmer/analyst and is looking for a gig too. I have experience from SMB, and DoD. She's been in the aerospace industry for close to 20 years.
