December 7, 2022 at Silicon Milkroundabout Tech Job Fair

A couple of weeks ago, the team headed down to the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for Silicon Milkroundabout, one of the biggest tech job fairs in the calendar. Some of the biggest players in the global tech space have come here and set up their stalls in search of the next great developer, data scientist, designer, product manager and marketer.

It turned out to be a great event. We got to talk to some incredibly talented young people eager to sink their teeth into a role and to help us continue to grow, evolve, and continue on our mission to bring trust back to online shopping and to help stores give a voice to their customers, one review at a time.

We have more events in the pipeline. On 24 January, we’ll be hosting a partner meetup, events aimed specifically at Shopify tech partners and designed to create opportunities for networking, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing. Taking place at our offices in Old Street in the heart of London’s tech scene, we’ll be giving a talk, inviting our friends and partners to speak about their work, and exploring ways to make 2023 a landmark year for our ecosystem.

The very next morning we'll be at Vue Cinemas in Leicester Square for the eCom Collab Club. The guys at Flame will be speaking to us about our journey so far, what we’ve learned, what advice we have for others in our space, and why, as always, the best thing any store can do is put the shopper first.

After the pandemic and the rise in virtual meetings, it’s been great to get out there and speak to people face to face again. It’s an exciting time in the world of tech and online shopping.

That’s why we’re looking forward to next year.
