On leaving easyJet

Mar 23, 2014 easyjet justeat

It's my final week at easyJet. I've worked on one of the web team now for over a year and a half - and I've learnt a lot.

I've learnt a lot about great teamwork. I've met a lot of great people. I've helped deliver real software and real features to one of the UK's busiest e-commerce platforms.

If you were ever considering going to work for an airline, I can recommend it, though you'll have a few challenges:

  • Massive code bases
  • Monolithic architectures
  • Giant databases with change control
  • Release control management (as it's a big website)
  • Agile Scrum fun

Niggles aside, it's a really great place to work. easyJet invest in themselves and their IT - after all, their tech is what got them to where they are today. There are so many people who want to push the platform forward, break it down and make it better for the future.

EasyJet has:

  • Great people
  • Great teamwork ethics
  • So much scope for change!
  • So many different and exciting challenges
  • Investment and opportunities

I'm sad to leave easyJet and Team Koi. I've made friends for life there, and know the door is open if I want to return in the future.

My next role is as a Senior .NET Developer at JustEat.co.uk - a very exciting role on a very fast moving platform - and I'm really looking forward to the challenge.

I'm wishing all the guys at easyJet the very best for the future.
