Valve hardware engineer Ellsworth gets the shaft
Okay, so, maybe she didn’t really get completely screwed, but we wouldn’t know would we? Because after hardware engineer Jeri Ellsworth tweeted about getting fired, nothing has been said about why.
Ellsworth was working on some next-gen hardware for Valve in the Steam Big Picture team, bringing PC gaming to lounges all over the world, because no one’s ever actually just put a couch in front of their PC and connected a wireless controller. That would just be silly and has never been thought of before. Anyway! Back to the actual story here. Ellsworth tweeted this early this morning:
Yup.Got fired today.Time for new exciting projects.

It’s Ellsworth’s last day on the job today, no doubt this lady will find another job though. She’s got 15 years experience in all phases of electrical and mechanical engineering. Oh and did I mention she’s a hacker? Of course I didn’t. Let the “wow chicks can hack!” comments begin!
