What our consultants say
Tech Migration and Integration Consultant
University of Sydney
In my role, I can see how data is manipulated and transformed to create valuable insight for end-users, as well as apply my own logic to create stories. We are also migrating many of our assets to cloud platforms which involves a lot of development and testing.

I am responsible for the configuration and providing support to the development and production environments of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) projects. I help set up and maintain the virtual machines for automated processes. I also help in assessing the viability of automation for various applications.
University of Queensland
I decided to join FDM because they understood the difficulties graduates face when finishing their degree and trying to gain experience. They are supportive of this and provided resources and access to better improve skills not just in technical skills but also personal development. Other reasons were because they were invested in helping girls learn tech and bridging the gap between genders.
