Local head count current is 35 in Ireland and 45 in the UK (remotes sys admins, tech engineers, field engineers, project managers, programme managers and sales) and expanding the UK office - feels like startup but still a very statup good energy.

If you want to use a new tool, workflow or methodology this is you blank canvass to implement what you think will be best!
