Harry Barden Joins Firemind as a Junior Developer

Last Monday our team expanded further with the addition of Harry Barden, our latest Developer.

Harry joins us after completing his degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Greenwich. Like many fresh out of Uni, his path was unclear and the opportunities available were pretty diverse. He’d always had a real passion for software, technology and computers (even building his own) so he quickly began delving into the world of web development, applying the foundations of what he’d studied in engineering.

He signed up to the Odin Project (a full stack open source community empowering project based courses on HTML + CSS, RUBY, DATABASES, NODEJS and more) and began learning the tools of the digital trade. Once he’d built up a selection of portfolio-worthy projects, he began looking for the next big company to work for.

He had been looking at early career options with Cognizant but decided that Firemind would be a better fit that would allow more scope for learning, advancement and the ability to shape and adapt a growing tech companies future (nice choice Harry 👍 ).

He’s at the beginning of his Firemind journey and is keen to work with our team on client projects once he’s gone through his Firemind induction. We asked him if there was an area of specialisation he was looking to move towards in the future and it seems he has a thing for data just like us. We’re very excited to see him prosper in his role and see how data science integration will play a pivotal part in his development.

Stepping away from the role and the position with us, he’s an avid gym enthusiast as well as a bit of a geek at heart. He loves technology, the way it helps shape and advance modern culture, and he especially enjoys the technology used within the vertical of gaming (a very exciting industry, especially for us as an AWS Advanced Partner).

It’s exciting to have Harry with us and we’re looking forward to helping him through his first client projects after the induction and initial training.
