We can't quite believe that January has already come to an end, but we've sardinely clammed a lot in (including some "interesting" new puns, it seems!)
Did you know that the number of recruiters using Firefish increased by over 43% last year? To make sure the Happiness team can continue to provide the award-winning level of support our Fish friends deserve, we're delighted that Dario has joined the team as a Client Success Champion! Originally from Northern Ireland, Dario has a brilliant background in recruitment...and also once had a bit of a run-in with Van Morrison!
We're continuing to grow, so keep a look out for more new faces coming soon!
We Are 8!
Firefish turned 8 on the 8th, and we had a great time reflecting on where we started and how things have changed over the years. Who would have thought 8 years ago that we'd be in our very own Aquarium with an ever-increasing shoal!
It wasn't just the big Fish celebrating in January - Automation Engineer Minh (whose birthday was actually at the end of December) and Senior Developer Eric both celebrated their birthdays. We were delighted to treat them to our highly tuneful singing and some lovely cake!
Careers in Tech Video
We're really passionate about the tech industry, and we love a good video, so this month Lead Front-End Developer Natasha was delighted to share her thoughts with Glasgow's IFSD. Click here to see what she thinks about careers in tech...and to find out her ultimate ambition!
We ended 2017 on a winning streak, and are thrilled to see this continuing into 2018!
