Software Engineer @ Amino
“I eventually received an offer to be a Software Engineer at an exciting healthcare start-up, and only 11 weeks into the program.”
“My career thus far had been in data analytics. I wanted to transition
to a developer role and ultimately be able to create and turn my ideas
into reality. I had not taken any coding courses before this, only
online tutorials and books, so I was not sure what to expect.
Class after class, I was blown away by the passion Michael and
his team brought to each and every lesson! The classes were
lively, balanced between lecture, demonstrations, guided coding
activities, and group work, while still being accessible to a wide
range of experience levels.
A couple of months into the course, I started applying for developer positions, and soon I was excited to be invited for a round of on-site interviews. Michael was very supportive, coaching me on how to best present my work experience, and guiding me through a mock "whiteboard" interview. Every interview was more challenging than the last, but all of the coaching and prep received at Kickstart beforehand was critical to my moving forward in the process. You can imagine my excitement when I eventually received an offer to be a Software Engineer at an exciting healthcare start-up, and only 11 weeks into the program! Now, I've been at my new position for several months, and I love it. The work we did in class was instrumental in preparing me for my new day-to-day duties. I'm very thankful to the Kickstart Coding team and the help they provided in transitioning to my new software engineering career.”
