I work on the software used by Auto Trader customers (car dealers). Currently working on a system that allows our customers to efficiently move their vehicles between locations.
I built an app as part of my degree that is now being used internally by our Conference Guild to manage the conferences that Auto Trader send people on.
Currently completing a Degree Apprenticeship in Digital and Technology Solutions (Software Engineering pathway) at MMU.
I have always loved maths and problem solving but my experience of IT in school was mainly spreadsheets and flow charts. I didn't go to university after leaving college, but I had friends and family that studied computer science and it was through hearing about what they were studying that I realised it would be something I would really enjoy.
You don't have to be a stereotypical 'IT geek' to be a software developer!!
