Following the momentum created around International Women’s Day, we’re continuing to celebrate diversity across the Volcanic business, especially our commitment to maintaining an inclusive culture.

 

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.”
