About 4 and a half years ago I was offered a job at a company I’d never heard of called Red Gate. I took it and soon found out that I’d been lucky enough to join a company that’s literally one of the best software companies to work for in the UK. As a bonus, Red Gate is based in the best place to live in the UK: Cambridge.
What I’m trying to say is that all in all it’s been a really great 4 and a half years. If you’re looking for a software job in the UK you’d be hard pressed to do better than Red Gate. Additionally I’ve been lucky enough to have done a wide variety of jobs there including web design, product design, team lead, head of UX, programme and project management and generally being a pain in the ass.
But now its time to move on. Late last year my (significantly) better half and I moved back to Malta (the place with 3K+ hours of sunshine a year!) and the next two weeks will be my last at Red Gate. Then, in mid-March I’ll be joining Automattic, the folks who make WordPress. As far as I can tell, it’ll be an even more awesome place to work. I plan to find time to write about my experience working there in the coming months.
So thank you for putting up with me Red Gate and farewell, I have a hunch we’ll meet again.
Hello Howdy Automattic, I’m looking forward to getting to know you :-)
