Hiring new people is always tricky. Interviews are a great way of finding people who are good at interviewing, but not much else! At Yoomee, we prefer not to advertise and instead let serendipity work its magic.
As a result we're delighted to welcome the following new people to the Yoomee team. All these roles are full-time permanent roles and come at a key point in our growth:
Tim Brazier – Senior Digital Producer
Tim is joining us next week to help manage our work load and ensure the quality of work doesn't drop as we expand and take on bigger projects. As with all the most interesting jobs, this wasn't an advertised role; Tim approached us last month to explore the possibility of moving back to Sheffield from London. He's got over 6 years' experience in managing the delivery of projects at one of the UK's fastest growing and most respected digital agencies – and so this was perfect timing for Yoomee as we do more work for organisations like vInspired and Mind.
Jon Kyte – Interaction Designer
Jon joined us straight from university having achieved a first class degree in Multimedia Technology. Despite being an undergraduate, Jon had already built an impressive freelance portfolio of apps and websites before joining us. He will be bolstering the design department led by Rich as we expand the services offered. Jon's amazing with both code and design. Check out his latest responsive design for us on the Off Axis project.
Chrystal Griffiths – Intern Developer
Chrystal has joined us an Intern Developer during her year out from the University of Kent. She describes herself as a "Developer and one of those happy people". Chrystal contacted Yoomee directly about doing a placement here and has impressed us with her pro-activeness and willingness to get stuck in and learn new things. She's been doing a great job cutting her teeth on the Tour Book project.
