Rachel's career case study

Full stack developer

Rachel joined SimpleClick in 2017 as a Junior Developer but has made tremendous progress and has become a real asset to our development team.  In January 2019, she was promoted to the role of Developer, outgrowing her junior title. She is now a Full Stack Developer, taking on both front-end and back-end development projects.

Rachel is using her time at SimpleClick as an opportunity to work with, and learn from, some extremely talented developers and she hopes to continue progressing her career at such a fast pace.

I feel like every day teaches me something new and helps me to learn something a bit different – it’s great to be able to develop my skills so quickly!

Learning new skills

When Rachel joined the team, she initially came from a design background having completed a degree in animation. However, since she joined SimpleClick, she’s shown a real aptitude for web development and has quickly become fluent in HTML and CSS.

Now, Rachel is involved in many of our web projects, using her attention to detail to meticulously write code and thoroughly test her work.

She is always eager to further enhance and develop her skills and often takes the initiative to ask colleagues to explain how she can further develop her skills. 

We love seeing Rachel’s enthusiasm, and in rare quiet moments, she can often be found utilising training videos and courses to further her knowledge. As a team, we have nurtured this vibrant passion and other members of our development team regularly take the time to further support and develop her talent. 

Learning from the best

The mentorship shown by the whole team has proved to be extremely worthwhile, and Rachel has expressed excitement at how far her career has progressed. At SimpleClick, we pride ourselves on involving all members of the team in big projects, and it’s an approach which has paid off. We want to encourage our developers to think big and feel like they are a part of something, and it’s great to see how Rachel has flourished and naturally progressed in her role.

When asked what she loves most about her career, Rachel says it’s the “option to work on so many different things. I feel like every day teaches me something new and helps me to learn something a bit different. I'm continually challenged, appreciated and I can still see more room for improvement and growth”.

Looking to the future

Rachel is incredibly ambitious and is keen to progress in her career. During her 6 years with us, she has continually developed by gaining new skills in back end development while further enhancing her front end skills. Rachel has now progressed to become a full stack developer.

Having benefited from other members of the team taking the time to mentor and guide her, Rachel now offers similar support to newer members of the SimpleClick team.
