I develop, support and maintain software, both as an engineer and as a team lead. I also maintain and fix the development environments the applications are run on.
Having joined on a graduate scheme I have had the opportunity to lead on several projects and create unique solutions to difficult problems for customers.
I studied Mathematics at university, before joining a graduate scheme that converted STEM graduates into Software Engineers.
I've always been fascinated with computers and the software that we use on a day to day basis. Being able to use my skills to help create something that can help others in their day to day work, is why I wanted to get into Software Engineering.
Don't just think about the obvious path, there are many paths to the same goal.
