Andrés comments

“The programming level is exceptionally high, and you have complete autonomy over your projects. I particularly enjoy this as I am aware of the expectation and enjoy managing my projects. The team are very responsible and professional; we are committed to producing our best work and this results in the highest standard of code. Team interaction through daily stand-up meetings encourages the pooling of ideas and experience, which surfaces our best solutions and proposals. I enjoy the fact that our opinions are always heard and that like-minded colleagues surround me. The atmosphere is very positive, and we enjoy strong team camaraderie. Help is always on hand, and there is a real sense and drive to be the best that we can be.

I love working here. I was used to seeing the lack of responsibility, under-hand play and generally a lack of respect in previous roles. At Data Interconnect, I haven’t seen anything like that, there is zero politics, the people are sincere, transparent, accommodating and very friendly. They are very social, and we work in an environment of balance. Our career paths are truly defined by our personal and professional commitment and growth. I love the diverse and positive environment I work in. Joining the company has been a brilliant experience for me. I was welcomed as part of the team from day one.

The management team have a high degree of emotional intelligence. They take the time to make everyone comfortable, think nothing of taking the whole company out for the day to socialise. They take account of everyone, the feelings of that person, and always take the time to ask how you are and doing? You don’t expect that from companies today, but at Data Interconnect, it is a given”.

“I feel that I have finally found my perfect job. Before joining Data Interconnect, I had been a semi-technical Customer Services Agent, initially starting out as a Chef in the Catering Industry. Making the transition to a Business Analyst has been a steep learning curve and real career achievement. I enjoy converging business and technology requirements, proposing solutions and improvements to produce the best possible software for our customers.

Data Interconnect has been highly encouraging and supportive, and I recognise how much my skills have developed over the past year.

I would advise anyone considering a new position, not to get too hung up on every skill requirement within the job specification. I believe that there should always be a little growing room in every new role, this keeps things interesting and helps to broaden your skill-set.

Working at Data Interconnect is fun, every day is something new and fresh. My team are brilliant, we have a fabulous mix of age-groups, backgrounds and our conversations cover every topic from Gaming to Sci-Fi and just about everything in between. There is never a dull moment. The team are highly professional, and we all put our heart and souls into our work. It really is a great place to work”.

Data Interconnect Team Focus - Zipporah Stephen
Business Analyst

Data Interconnect are incredibly proud to have Zipporah working with our growing team of female technologists. Zipporah is a member of the WISE Young Women’s board made up of 12 exceptional young women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) aged under 30.

Zipporah comments

“Growing up I wasn’t always good at Maths, but I made the conscious decision to get better at it. I later went on to do Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics for my GCE, holding a Private Pilot License at 18 and graduating with a first in Mathematics with Computer Science with Professional Practice BSc (Hons). I am passionate about numbers, very curious and always think things through to find patterns and answers.

My journey in STEM has been an interesting and rewarding one. It’s important to me that girls and women realise their hidden potential and see the opportunities an inquisitive mind leads to and discover their inner strength, especially among adversity by believing in yourself.

The UK has a decreasing number of women in technology due to the lack of aptitude in STEM subjects. Going into local schools and working with girls I know the potential they hold and the barriers that hold them back.

I believe one step at a time we can make a difference and I want to be part of that revolution. When you believe, the sky is not a limit”.

2nd Line Support Analyst

Data Interconnect is pleased to welcome Elliot Dickerson to the BAU team. We applaud Elliot’s skills, cheerful disposition and enthusiasm for his role.

Elliot comments

“For me, software development has been a life-long passion. I started making games at primary school and continued well into my professional career. I went on to win “The Game Creators Competition 2004″ a retro revamp style game which I wrote in DarkBASIC programming language.

I now have a decade of hands-on development and technical support experience, which spans three roles across HR, Finance, Retail and Accounts Software development. I am a relatively new member of the Data Interconnect team but have found working here a very positive and enjoyable experience. Every day is different, and I learn something new. I have enough room within my role to really push and technically stretch myself, which is backed-up and encouraged by my supportive colleagues. Being new, I operate within a ‘buddy-up’ framework and appreciate feedback through the peer-to-peer review process. It’s great to have the processes in place which safeguards and maintains the integrity of code, ensuring that there is no possibility of code errors. I enjoy programming, and I recognise that there are some spectacular career opportunities to progress here. My colleagues are true professionals, and I thoroughly enjoy my new role here and can honestly say that I get on well with everyone.”

“Really nice place to work. Management is awesome and team mates are really nice. Also there is real talent in there and a big deal of innovation and commitment with new technologies. People are very very professional. A really great place to work.”
