Although this has been in the works for some time, I haven’t mentioned it until now, because the ink is still fresh on the contract. I am now working as a software engineer at FanDuel, the market leader in one-day fantasy sports. I had been working with them last year on a contract basis, but as of a couple of weeks ago I’m on board as permanent staff. This is why I’ve been in Edinburgh so much recently. We have no plans to move house. FanDuel is based in New York, but the engineering staff are (mostly) all in Edinburgh. With that kind of distribution, the company operates mostly in the cloud anyway. I’ll continue to work from my office in Oostzaan most of the time, with a few days in Edinburgh every fortnight.

Oh yeah, and we’re hiring.
