We interviewed Elisabeth Wetchy, Junior Full Stack Developer at StepStone on her experience and thoughts on women in tech.
While doing a computer animation course at university, I discovered that I really enjoyed the programming elements of it – which I’d been very sceptical about before trying! Something about the way problems can be solved via code appealed to me and slotted right into my brain.
After completing my computer animation course and graduating from university, I decided to go down the technical route and joined a software company as part of their technical support team. This allowed me to work alongside software development teams and get to know their process, and soon I decided I wanted to be a developer myself.
I was looking for a junior developer role when the opportunity at TJG/StepStone came along. I was impressed that there seemed to be such a passion and focus on taking on junior developers and supporting them in their growth, and everyone I spoke to was open and friendly. When I was offered the role there was no doubt in my mind that I’d accept.
So far, I’ve been getting to know the company, the teams and their work and have found that everyone really cares about their work and getting it right just as much as they care about their colleagues. I look forward to continuing to learn much more!
