Simon McIntosh

Job Before: AV Technician

Job Now: Software Engineer @ DAI




Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: November 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I decided to retrain and was encouraged by the future career prospects afforded by completing the traineeship.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
Creating the final projects for the portfolio website. Both projects were crucial in consolidating and reinforcing all of the skills and techniques developed prior to their undertaking. The inclusion of several different languages and processes means they are great to present and discuss with potential employers.
What's your current role like?
In my current role as a Software Engineer I’m primarily working in C. I’ve just completed the month-long introductory training and am now assigned to a team so I’m looking forward to learning more about the project in order to aid its development.
