I’m moving to the UK
Back in April of this year I was made redundant from my job as a Software Test Engineer, it was a bit of a shock and it came out of the blue so was rather in shock. I tweeted that day I’d been made redundant and was looking for work and I was rather amazed at the responses I got. All good! But one of interest was Mark Taylor of Sirius sending me a direct message asking would I be interested in working in the UK. I didn’t need to think about it I knew I did and wanted something different. I met with Mark and the team at Sirius the following week as I was heading over to Oggcamp anyway.
Fast forward to last week and I get a mail out of the blue from Mark asking me would I like to work for Sirius. He explained to me what the role would entail and I knew instinctively it would be great and suited me. I will be working in marketing, meeting journalists, organising events and attending events all with the aim to promote open source.
When I come back from UDS I’ll be going across the water and moving to the UK and I’m really looking forward to it. Once I sort out a place to live and get settled in I’ll be mailing the UK list and seeing if anyone wants to meet up for an Ubuntu hour 🙂 be warned now I’m in close proximity I’ll be able to go to more events but also help out more.
