I'm fed up of working with people who don't care about design, security and privacy. Most devs that I've met just do it because it pays the bills. I talk to devs and I feel like they don't want to broaden their 5 years working with the only language they know: C#. I talk to more devs who say they care about security but Base64 hash everything as security by obscurity.

I've done some time in startup land too and the endgame is being acquired by a FAANG. Well that's partly why I'm here... what's the point working 4 years for sweat equity when you can just go apply direct to a FAANG and earn FU money that way?

I know where I want to work at Apple. I want to make an impact first and foremost on the forefront Apple apps like iTunes because most of those apps are really slow and don't even work properly. Then I also want to work in security/privacy eng.

I'm young and I've done tonnes of projects and have worked with Google before. One of my open source projects is being used by millions of people.

Anyone from the UK willing to refer me into Apple @ London?
