Time for a change of scenery

It’s official, from the end of November I’m going to be working for hibu as the UI Tech Lead for yell.com

I’ve had a great start to my career – over my 6 years at PA I’ve worked for the biggest employer in Europe (twice), the world’s biggest medical charity, oil giants, financial regulators, one-man-bands, governments, utility companies, major pharmas and worldwide hotel chains. I’ve gotta say, there’s no feeling like you’re making a difference in a company, and I’ve had some great results over the year;.  I’ve even managed to carry 15 iPads in my hand luggage through Istanbul airport. With all of that comes trade-offs, and a pretty long commute, and it’s time to leave that behind.

So, I’m really looking forward to be able to focus on this product and make it great. I’m going to continue to be an organiser for London Web Standards so I’m not abandoning the city completely, but you’ll also see me at Reading events like Breaking Borders, Reading Geek Night and Berkshire Digital.

Here’s to the next step.
