Moment.Us have added three new talented people to their team. Andrew Ko, the CEO and co-founder of Moment.Us, met two of the new recruits from our Brand and Recruitment Day we hosted at TechHub Manchester.
I caught up with Andrew and asked him about Manchester, startups, and new talent. Here's what he had to say.
"Having been living in Manchester for the past three years, I've had a lot of time to chat with established developers and university students alike and the one common thread I've noticed is that they all have that drive to want to work for an exciting startup, especially one that's located here in the Northwest. And that's one of the biggest reasons why we want to base our headquarters here because its very rare to have such an abundance of talent located right at your doorstep via three top universities and MediaCity UK. The university factor should not be overlooked as that is the best source for talented individuals who are hungry to learn, which is the biggest thing we look for when recruiting for Moment.Us. It's not about what you know now, but what you want to know tomorrow and the steps you're wiling to take to learn it. That's why Manchester is such a great city to be based in."
