Tyler Breisacher quit his job as a Google software developer in April in part to protest Google’s collaboration with the US military on analyzing drone video footage.  
When he decided to leave, he feared that he’d struggle to find a job comparable to the one he had left at Google.

Tyler Breisacher, a former Google software developer, has no regrets about the part he played in the unprecedented employee unrest at the company this year.
