Work and live on the island where Aphrodite was born

Nissi beach in Ayia Napa, possibly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

I probably have the most beautiful commute in the world. I wake up at dawn, I enjoy my coffee on me balcony, from where I can enjoy the warm sun 9 months of the year, overlooking the sea – And on my way to my office in Limassol, I drive past the place where legend has it Aphrodite was born. I work in a pleasant environment, in one of the nicest office buildings in Limassol, with great colleagues, and a nice leader, always willing to listen to my opinions. In fact, I actually asked him if I could write this blog, and he instantly said “Love it, go for it!” You should envy me.

In my weekends, me and my girl often enjoy one of the beautiful beaches that are just some few kilometres away from where we live, or we go visiting one of the thousands of amazing tourist attractions on the island, such as the oldest Christian monastery on earth, Nissi Beach in Ayia Napa, or maybe we bring our mountain bikes to Troodos, to go “off roading”, while filling up our bags with chanterelle on our way back home. Cyprus simply has everything you can dream of.

Below is a photo from the “top of the Island”, the mountain of Troodos, who’s highest peak is named after the place where the Greek Gods lived; Mount Olympus!

You simply can’t beat this view!

However, there is one thing missing here, and that is YOU! If you’re a software developer, which you probably are if you’re reading my blog, we would love to talk to you. You see, London Capital Group which is my employer, are looking for more software developers. Specifically, we’re looking for .Net developers, in addition to one SugarCRM/PHP guru. However, if you’re among the best of the best, you probably realize like I do, that life is more than work. So why should you choose us instead of some other company? Well, Cyprus is the answer. Below is one of my favourite spots on the island. I have stood on top of that rock many times, enjoying the view to the sea, from where I have dipped my body into many times. According to legend, you grow 10 years younger if you swim around that rock three times 😉

Sure, we might not be able to meet your City of London salary expectations, but then again your living costs are basically half of what a one bedroom apartment in the City of London will cost you. And for the price of a train ticket in London, you can take your girlfriend to dinner, go to a cinema, and still have a handful of euros left afterwards for a couple of beers. And the best part is that in your weekends, you can experience first hand why this is the Island of Love and Aphrodite. Maybe you’ll meet me and my girlfriend, as we are enjoying a bottle of wine, at one of the hundreds of beautiful beaches down here, often at night, during the weekends, under the full moon.

If you want to hear more, feel free to write me an email at thomas.hansen@lcg.com, and hopefully we’ll meet you soon. Welcome to Cyprus 🙂

Yours truly swimming in Larnaca, where legend has it Lazarus used to live.
