Leaving M&S

01 May 2015

Today is my last day at Marks & Spencer. It’s a pretty sad day, but I’m trying to stay upbeat about it. In the last 2 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with some unbelievably excellent people, and I don’t regret a single day of my time here. When I first started I, and the rest of Digital Labs, was one of very few developers in the company. I’ve had a front row seat as the business has reorganised into product teams, adopted agile, hired a bunch of great developers and designers and really started thinking digital first. If you’re looking for a new gig I really can’t recommend it enough, check out the careers page.

What’s next for me then? I’m going freelance, which is simultaneously really exciting and totally terrifying. My first gig is remote working for Move Loot a really awesome startup in San Francisco. Look out for a new version of their iOS app, coming to an App Store near you very soon.
