Meet Nini, The Pathfinder – How she landed her dream role in Tech.
‘I think it was the best decision I’ve ever made.’
I just wanted a new challenge. So I took a non-conventional route into Tech – in the sense that I do not have a STEM degree and I do not have any technical background.
I actually had no idea where to start; here came in Sky’s ‘Get Into Tech’ programme, which is a brilliant initiative. You start off by learning a language called PHP, and then you learn some cloud technologies. You also do a couple of projects, and after that you have the chance to apply to one of Sky’s graduate schemes.
It was during that scheme that I decided that I actually wanted to go down the DevOps route, because I thought that it was the perfect combination of tech, and my project management skills.
I really enjoyed playing with AWS, so I wanted to do that a bit more. And do you know what – I think it was the best decision I’ve ever made.
