Hey everyone! I tweeted a number of weeks ago saying that I was leaving the team at LEWIS and heading for pastures new. Well, with just over 4 weeks to go, I thought I'd share where I'm heading to.
3 years with the team at LEWIS
I've had a brilliant 3 years at LEWIS here in Edinburgh. I've attended Codegarden a number of times, I've represented the company at the Umbraco Gold Partner summit and I've been awarded an Umbraco MVP award each year I have worked there! But all good things have to come to an end eventually. My decision to move away from LEWIS wasn't easy but I want, I need, to continue developing and growing as a coder. I'm looking for new challenges and experiences.
COVID-19 has shown me that I quite like working from home and it's opened up some new opportunites for me. I would never have considered applying for a job that was 100% remote working in the past but every cloud has a silver lining.
Where am I off to?
I was sent a link to a job advert which peaked my interest and within 4 days of submitting my CV I had gone from not looking for a new job to having 2 interviews, a HR online test and a job offer!
I couldn't believe it.
I will be leaving one amazing company and joining another who are an Umbraco Gold Partner company and they also have a fellow Umbraco MVP on their team.
So, there you have it, the cat, or should I say, the dog is out of the bag.
I'm not leaving the Umbraco Community or moving away from the CMS that we all love and use. I'm very much here to stay.
