I'm looking for work in Melbourne!

I’ve just moved from the UK to my partner’s home town of Melbourne, Australia and I’m starting to look for programming work here.

Update: I’m no longer looking for work for the time being but will leave this here for posterity.

Who am I?

If you’ve just come across this post and are wondering who on earth I am, here’s a brief summary:

You can read more about me on my home page.

What sort of work am I interested in?

There are lots of things which would potentially interest me so I don’t have a specific ask here, but I do have some ideas:

Since I’m still settling in here, it feels a bit soon to go straight into a permanent role, so I am primarily looking for contract work. But I’m not completely ruling out a permanent role and would be open to it for the right job.

I like remote work and I’ve done a lot of it over the years, but living in a city again feels like a good opportunity to get some face time. Therefore I’m not really looking for remote opportunities, but again, I’d consider it if the work itself was particularly exciting for me.

Get in touch

If any of the above sounds interesting, or you simply want to say hi, please do get in touch with me!

Even if you’re not hiring, but you think my skillset/approach/outlook appeals, I’d love to have a chat. I don’t have many contacts on this side of the world yet, so I’m very keen to meet new people. And if you have any recommendations of other people I should chat to, events I should attend, communities I should know about, I’m all ears.
