Coderus is proud to have Andrew joining us as our new apprentice developer.
After school, Andrew attended Northgate Sixth Form and was later recruited as an apprentice at a larger company from 2016-2019. During this time he completed six-month placements in cybersecurity, software development, solution design, in-life support, media testing and robotic process automation. He stayed in RPA and used Blue Prism to automate back-end projects and reports. Wow, Andrew, we are very impressed! However, sadly Andrew says his experience was not positive and felt that his input was not taken on board and its environment didn’t suit him or fairly reward his efforts. So thankfully, Andrew applied to somewhere where he knew that he would be valued, which is why he joined Coderus earlier this year.
During this period, Andrew also completed a part-time Foundation Degree in Software Engineering with Distinction from the University of Suffolk. Andrew had a much nicer time at University and managed to become the course representative, a society treasurer while also making lots of new friends through the Students’ Union. Good going, Andrew! We are so pleased to have you part of the team.
What does Andrew like to do in his spare time?
During his spare time, Andrew enjoys socialising and going out with friends to the cinema or the pub. He also enjoys setting up game nights. Other than that, Andrew also likes being creative and challenging his brain in a different way. He is an amateur composer (with a MuseScore account) and a playwright.
What made you choose Coderus, Andrew?
I chose to work for Coderus because I was aware of the company’s positive reputation – I was continually aware of their engagement with my local community and the work they do for an exciting range of clients. I was also attracted to the company culture, which is advertised with a great social media presence. The work they do is rewarding, problem-solving and on the bleeding edge, which appeals to me.
