I Have A New Job

Work Friday 30th March 2007

After two years and nine months at Scotweb as a Web Developer I have handed in my notice. I have been offered a job at Valley Technology as a PHP Application Developer. It’s a step up professionally and would lead to more exposure to a wider variety of clients and development processes. They’re currently based in Leith but by the time I start (my notice period is two months) they will have moved to shiny new offices in the centre of town. This will be an exciting opportunity and I can’t wait to get started at Valley Tech.



  1. Congrats!

  2. Crikey.

    So Farmfoods use open source?!

    Well done you.

  3. Are you aware Valley Technology Ltd was only incorporated in December 2000,so they can’t have beem in business for over ten years!!

  4. Farmfoods have also used SCO for many years

  5. Again, congratulations Olly! Sounds like a great company – thier really pushing the OSS.

    Their current office is actually just around the corner from me in leith, but I guess we won’t get to be neighbours.

  6. Sorry, my mistake, should have been March 2000, not December 2000 for the incorporation Date.

  13. Oooh, Congrats Olly.

  14. @Rick: yeah, slightly more, not vastly.

  17. […] blog posts have been getting pretty thin on the ground recently. I have been working a lot in my swanky new job, doing MVC PHP work but mixing it up with some C#, which is a lot like […]
