Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated anything here. Insight is moving along, but has currently stalled while I’m in exam mode. I’m not going to talk about that though — this is a rare personal post.
I’ve been looking around for jobs recently, as I will need something to bring in money after I finish at uni in just over two short months. I had originally planned to work for a company based on Slough with one of my housemates, until I received an offer from an ex-Oxford entrepreneur friend. After meeting this friend and his team within just a day or two of the email, I was very excited at the possibility of working with them, especially as I kept having ideas or suggestions for them.
I knew I would have to wait a while for their response, as they had to okay it with their board, and they weren’t planning on deciding on a new hire for some time. As the days fluttered by towards the deadline for this other company and these friends flew out to Silicon Valley for Web Mission, I grew more nervous, hoping that they would get back to me with at least some sort of reply… until yesterday.
I had a phone call (at 7:45am his time) from my main contact there saying they would like to make me an offer! I was overjoyed at this, and was told we’d have a chat later that evening with details. Later that evening, and after some thought, I decided that this definitely was the right path for me, so I resolved to accept the offer.
It is with great pleasure that I announce that I am now the fourth member of the GroupSpaces team đŸ™‚ I start on or around 30th June, and I’m really, really excited about it! I’ll be moving to Oxford, and living and working there. I can’t wait to start!
Exams begin soon, though. 30th April – 15th May.
