Four years ago I started out on an exciting journey working at Yoomee and now the adventure continues. Today I'm off to travel the world for six months!
I first came to Yoomee in 2008 as a student on a summer placement – thanks to the Shell Step Scheme – and as soon as I graduated I was fortunate to get a full-time job as a developer. Over the past four years I've worked on some awesome client projects.
It's been such a great opportunity for me here at Yoomee to learn so many new things. I've not only improved my skills technically, but I've seen how a business works from the inside out.
Yoomee have been such a generous company, giving me the time to work on learning new things and also making sure I'm enjoying myself along the way. I'll miss spending my lunchtimes beating the other guys at table tennis and sampling Sheffield's eateries together. I've just come back from a team meal at a Chinese restaurant (where I ate bullfrog amongst other things!) and received a bag of gifts for my travels! Working at Yoomee has felt like being part of a family.
Over the years I've seen a lot happen at Yoomee:
- 3 weddings
- 3 babies born
- 1,913 games of table tennis (697 won by me!)
- 72,820 tracks played on last.fm
- awesome company trip to Texas for SXSW
- 171 Friday beers
- office move to Electric Works (there's a slide, yay!)
So, now I'm going travelling round the world – as you read this I'll be on a flight to Brazil – visiting three different continents and 14 different countries in 182 days. I'm so excited! Please do follow my travels at www.iancmooney.com and stay in touch!
Thank you and good bye. See you again in six months.
