I turned down another job offer, opting to stay with the safer option (yet again). The first time it was to a competitor in my city, this time it was back to Nigeria, and a return to UX5 where I cut my teeth and learned the bulk of everything I know. There were a number of issues – a few powerful interests stacked up against me courtesy of toes I’d stepped on in the past, and the fact that I’d seen all that and done that before. The key sticking point was that the pay on offer was ridiculous – clearly designed to price me out of accepting (plus rumour has it that on of the lead engineers on the project had a candidate)..
Their loss, I reckon… My two year itch still remains – only it will probably be tickled elswhere, just not in Nigeria.
