I know there's a bunch of jobs being advertised at the moment, so I just
wanted to add a huge recommendation for getting to work with Hywel and the
team at SkillerWhale.

He's also one of the most thoughtful company builders when it comes to
thinking about inclusion and great working places from the outset - so if
there are any folks on this list who are looking to work somewhere that
genuinely walks the walk not just the talk on inclusion and diversity, and
treating people with kindness and respect - these are the peeps to work

I'm not in any way professionally engaged with SkillerWhale, I just wanted
to vouch for Hywel and the team as a great (and kind) place to work, from a
woman in tech.
