Our graduate stories

Software Development


"Starting at apetito in 2016 as an undergraduate placement developer within the I.T department, I was initially drawn towards the technology stack being utilised at the business, and the inclination that my experience
and expertise would be utilised."


Making a real difference in Software Development

From my first day I was presented with tasks that gave me ownership and allowed me to work not only with other developers but other I.T individuals. The work was varied and included general websites, web applications and mobile apps. Included within this responsibility was not only the creation of the applications, but also the deployment and maintenance. Since my return as a graduate this responsibility and ownership has continued to grow, and I have been given the chance to help develop CI/CD pipelines, create and maintain Azure services, organise the team I work within as the scrum master and take on the role of a project manager.

Within such a fast-paced environment as software development, training and learning are essential, apetito understand this requirement and have been willing to send me on training courses that enable me to do my job better. This is reinforced by learning lunches and time dedicated to innovation and exploring viable technologies.
