How I ended up working for Google this year

So, to recap my year briefly:

– Decided to move to London
Decided to move to San Francisco instead
Went to SF Agile and met some great people
Left Campaign Monitor
– Decided to move to London again
– Did a short stint as a Programme Test Manager at NBN Co which was rather eye-opening
– Joined Wildfire Interactive
– Wildfire Interactive was acquired by Google
Moved to London, started work at Wildfire Interactive as a Test Engineer which so far has been awesome
– Moved into amazing Google offices

So it’s been a pretty incredible year! I’ve learned so much and met some really amazing people. I’m really happy to be working with the Wildfire team in Google here in London and I look forward to what 2013 brings.

    A crazy year for you, Trish! Here’s hoping 2013 is a little more settled (or maybe not, if crazy is your sort of scene).

    Hey Trish, what a great year! Give my regards to Jack Chant if he’s still knocking about there. He’s an amazing Test Engineer/QA/ChilliVodka shot drinker. Best of luck with the new role, looking forward to future updates.

    Regards,
