Please ping me an email at alex (.) treppass [at] skyscanner.net for a referral. Happy to answer questions or pass you to someone who can. CV in Word / .doc format would be ideal.
On a personal note, I see a lot of freedom, responsibility, accountability. Engineers have room to make decisions, move fast, and the encouragement to make things better. It's exciting.
