Read software developer Esther Rovira's story below.
"I studied History of the Art at Barcelona University and I started my career in people management. I love teamwork and I enjoyed motivating people - one of the best parts of the job. I decided to retrain as a software developer during the economic crisis when the arts suffered, but technology offered new opportunities.
“I continued studying and doing a lot of things by myself. I wanted to learn how to build websites because I discovered I love programming. I studied at Joan XXIII college, which brought me the opportunity to improve my skills and in the last year they offered the opportunity to join an Erasmus traineeship - which led me to Volcanic.”
Neil Pickstone at Volcanic said, “From day one of her Erasmus training Esther demonstrated she had the aptitude and enthusiasm to become a valuable team member. After her training period ended we worked with her to make arrangements for her to become a permanent member of the team.
"Esther works for us out of our Barcelona office where we've been able to create a career path for her that fulfills her professional ambitions and supports her family commitments. We’re very proud to say that our flexibility surrounding our hiring policy means we have a talented and diverse team of people - we believe the best in the business - strong staff retention and an increasingly balanced gender parity agenda.”
