Steven took part in Bilot’s Junior Academy as a Junior Developer Trainee this year. During the trainee program from March until September he worked as a Junior Developer and learned from Bilot’s experienced professionals. Starting from the 1st of October Steven has been working as a Software Developer in Bilot’s Digital Commerce team. Here he tells about his experience of Bilot’s trainee program:
I am a Hybris developer at Bilot. My story of becoming a developer began many years ago when I got my first computer and discovered my passion for programming. Time went by quickly and soon I found myself studying Business IT in Haaga-Helia and concentrating on Software and Database development.
Hard work, positive attitude and passion for problem-solving led me to start as a Software developer trainee at Bilot. During the Junior Academy I got an opportunity to attend high-quality software framework trainings, learn to understand core software development patterns of frameworks that I would not have had access to on my own, and learn from senior developers who have years of experience in the field. All this allowed me to grow myself as a software development professional and helped me to advance my career to the next level.
Currently I am responsible for back-end and front-end development in a vast variety of projects. Everything we do at Bilot we do as a team constantly learning from each other. This approach allows us to deliver high-quality service to our customers that makes a difference in their business.
In my free time I like to program, play computer games and go to mixed martial arts trainings. I am looking forward to welcoming new colleagues to our Bilot family and sharing everything I have learned at Bilot with them.
A new Bilot Academy is starting in the beginning of 2018 to train new professionals in the field of Java coding, system integration and Azure/DevOps. Do you want to be our next future talent?
