Thanks Elpha for this and Tori for opening the group.Been in UX and Design for 10+ years, I’m not sure if I’m transitioning out of tech yet, but finding the elusive great remote job might change my mind.I’ve lived in many parts of London - HA, NW, EC, E1W, SW now I’m based in Catford with my husband. It’s so crazy how each part seems like a different city but the church we go is central, handy. These days you’d find me attending bible studies ( in Brockley and St Helens bishopsgate)Dogsitting (met so many awesome dogs and families through BorrowmyDoggy)Childminding (on Nanny training now with KoruKids)Acquiring more houseplants for my house ( spiderplants are my plant bff) and booksTrying new things in the KitchenLooking forward to seeing what this community brings and how I can contribute!

Thanks Tori for starting this community and it's nice to get to know all of you! 😄I live in Watford and work remotely as a frontend developer. I also recently started Tech Sisters, a newsletter to support and encourage Muslim women in tech. When I'm not working, I'm busy raising my 2 kids. One of my favourite things to do is drag them around to different national trust places and get some screen-free time. I'm really looking forward to learning more about you and see how I can help out!

Hi ladies!Just to introduce myself I'm Christine and I work in Talent Acquisition with a focus on product and technology. I've worked in start-ups (Yieldify which was funded by Google Ventures), SMEs (TAB, a mobile development agency) and am now in-house at Financial Times Product & Technology. We run a tonne of events here focussed on anything from tech to investments :)I moved to the UK from HK 6 years ago, did a Masters in Organisational Psychology/Leadership & Talent Management, went on a Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa to build a product I was extremely passionate about using conversational interfaces. I dip in and out of side hustles! The key thing I'm working on at the moment is my facilitation/presentation skills, designing workshops with a focus on hiring technical/product talent for start-ups. Hit me up on Twitter @xtine08 :)
