Top 5 Reasons to Love Silicon Milkroundabout

Since its humble pub origins in 2011, Silicon Milkroundabout has become a significant event for bringing together skilled workers and innovative businesses. It’s also established itself as one of Labs’ favourite occasions for discovering new talent.

Labs Recruiter, Harriet Smith, gave her Top Five Reasons for loving Silicon Milkroundabout.



1. Showing off Octopus Labs. It’s a great place to work and I want everyone to know about us!


2. A chance to meet new people from all kinds of backgrounds and with all types of experiences (we found some great people from really diverse backgrounds last time and hope the same thing happens again).

3. It’s great to see the team in action and really pulling together; there’s a real buzz at SMR, the environment is awesome.

4. Great place to be nosey, network with other companies and see how they attract talent.

5. Of course, hanging out with my work colleagues on the weekend — who doesn’t want to see their co-workers seven days a week?

This year’s SMR will take place on November 25 and 26 at the Old Truman Brewery in East London. Being free to attend, it exposes job seekers to 200 tech startups and businesses, and even includes a few free beers. Attendance applications can be found on the SMR website.

Labs currently has several open positions for star talent. Harriet, along with several Labs colleagues, will be present both days of the fair, eager to chat, nose about and share a few beers with visitors.
