It’s not easy to hire at the moment, much less so in London where the banks and successful Seedcamp startups eat away all the talent (or so). Where to advertise for and find engineers? I usually say “good luck” […]

I loved this city
I moved to London a little bit more than a year ago, and I fell in love with it right away. In the beginning, I was intimidated when I walked from our office through Regent Street to the Oxford Circus Tube stop – I couldn’t stop being amazed by the expensively dressed, very busy and […]
