For those that didn’t know, I left my old job at OnTechnology as a Senior Software Engineer just before the birth of my son Dashel in July of 2009.
It was an extremely difficult decision, but I had to make a choice between living in a place I love and being able to watch my family grow up here, or continuing to make the sacrifice of commuting and working long hours in Sydney. Something had to give and I decided that it was more important to focus on my families future in Wollongong rather than continue working in Sydney.
I took a risk and decided to keep an eye out for suitable work in the ‘gong, not just any work mind you, but with a company that has similar ideals and a vision that I agreed with strongly. Luckily for me, iQmultimedia, a Wollongong company with a strong and growing presence were looking to hire!
Throughout the interview and recruitment process they were professional, friendly and great to get along with, I guess they felt likewise and I’ve now been gainfully employed as a Developer with them as of this week! Huzzah!
To the guys at OnTechnology I’d just like to say thanks for the great times and the many opportunities I was given. In particular I’d like to thank Luke Amery, my old boss, for the great support and mentoring he provided over the years, I attribute a lot of my learning and skills to the time spent patiently instructing while I built practical experience in the software field. I will still be watching the companies progress keenly in the future and wish them all the best and great success!
Onward and Upward, as they say!
