“I really enjoy the variety of projects I get to work on on-site. I am also given the time to focus on my own professional development and take charge of my future.

“While on-site I have been working on a project for Network Rail with another developer. Straight away I was able to develop, liaise with the SMEs and see a robot in a live system. As this project had three robots but only two developers, I also got to take over responsibility for one of these robots while it was successfully moved into the live system.”
