Good morning


πŸ‘‹πŸ» I'm Sally Lait. I work in engineering leadership, am an international speaker, writer for industry publications, and award winner.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» I've spent my career working with digital technologies and the web. I'm soon starting a new job as Head of Engineering at Farewill, but have previously worked in the role of Engineering Director/web discipline lead at Monzo, ran a digital transformation consultancy, and started out agency side as a developer up to Head of Technology. Some of the people I've worked with have included the RNLI, Electronic Arts, Sport England, Hotelplan, Nokia, SSE, Fulham FC, and Manor Racing F1 team (amongst others).

🎀 I've spoken at a wealth of conferences and meetups around the globe - everywhere from the USA, to Europe, and Japan.

🏑 At present I live in Suffolk in the UK, where I spend time gaming, gardening, learning ζ—₯本θͺž, collecting terrible hotel carpets, cooking, and illustrating manhole covers and train stamps.

🌟 I occasionally take time off to be involved in on small things outside of my day job (for instance I run workshops, and I've helped to curate the Render conference series). If you'd like to speak to me about anything I've done or could do, please say hello!
