Position: Junior Fullstack Engineer | Oetker Digital

Vortragstitel: Finding the right career is about the journey not the destination


It can feel overwhelming trying to find the ‘right’ career path, especially at the start when it seems like there are so many options and you don’t want to take a ‘wrong’ turn. But maybe there are no right or wrong ways to go. It is all about the journey. In this talk I will take a look back at my journey from Drama Graduate to Junior Fullstack Engineer and explain how varied experiences can provide valuable perspectives. I will also look at why diversity is so important in technology and discuss how Oetker Digital aims to be a company that proactively creates an environment free of discrimination, disadvantage or discomfort based on our definition of diversity.
