“As with any project, there are many technical challenges to overcome. It’s important to realise that it’s impossible to have all the knowledge and skills needed, but with these challenges comes a number of opportunities to learn something new.

I’ve been able to use my knowledge and experience to not only write code, but contribute to the whole spectrum of project delivery activities.

There’s a great working atmosphere in the team with a generous amount of flexibility on time spent working and time spent learning.”
