Goodbye And, Hello MC2
Today marks my last day at And Digital. I’ve been here for 15 months, having joined right out of University. At the time, I wasn’t actively seeking employment, as I was freelancing so that I did’t have to settle for “any old job”. After a few jobs at And Digital, they offered me the job, and shortly afterwards, I was a full time employee there.
In my time here, I’ve worked on a wide range of projects and moved from being “just a developer” to having a wide range of roles, and become very competent with WordPress. I’d also started to take on a much more client facing role and been involved in the early, cenceptual phases on many projects?
So, if things are going so well, why move on?
As of the first of September, I’ll be taking on the role of lead developer at MC2. Just as before, I was never actively seeking new employment, but every one in a while, a great opportunity presents itself – This was such a case.
As well as an element of client work to begin with, there is a lot more to this new role than just developing websites for clients. There will be a heavy emphasis on using the latest technologies and having a much more R&D driven role.
This continual learning and being able to develop to solve both internal needs as well as just building cool stuff for the sake of it appeals to me a lot more than a role in a traditional client service agency.
Due to the nature of the work I’ll be doing, I should also have lots of interesting things to write about, and maybe even the time to write them, so be sure to look out for lots of new, fresh content coming up.
