Meet Trainee Developer, Josh Corteen

Insight Published on 02 December 2021

How did you join PDMS?

I joined PDMS straight from university, I sent my CV in via the website and after two informal interviews, I was offered the position of Trainee Developer.

What qualifications do you need to do your job?

To become a Developer at PDMS, you don’t necessarily need any particular qualifications but I do have a relevant degree.

What skills do you need to do your job?

You need to have good problem-solving skills, a willingness to learn new coding languages as well as strong communication skills. Also, understanding that you won’t know everything, so be ready to ask for help if needed.

What does a typical day look like for you?

I'm still quite new at PDMS but a typical day includes a daily developer catch-up, then working through any developer tasks from our jobs board. Jobs vary from being quick fixes through to needing multiple people to work on the code. In the afternoon, if I have time, I'll do some self-learning.
