“What I find the most appealing in the technology field is its nature of constant evolution and new developments”. As a Junior Developer and recent graduate, Areeb Royeppen is enjoying learning more about this field each day, from reading articles to learning about new technologies and trends.
In his time at Saratoga, Areeb has worked on multiple short-term projects and this has further provided him with the opportunity to learn more as a developer. These projects have seen Areeb completing types of work he’s never done before, and this has helped him expand his skill set and knowledge base. “Every day brings a new challenge, and whether it’s big or small these need to be understood and overcome to successfully complete the task at hand”.
As a developer, the most fulfilling part of the job for Areeb is solving an issue, problem or bug and seeing everything just fall into place. “The feeling of accomplishment that comes from solving a code problem is quite indescribable!”
Part of the company culture at Saratoga is that we encourage an environment of continuous learning and freely sharing information among our staff. For Areeb, this has meant becoming immersed in a culture where colleagues are always discussing their projects and the technologies they’re using, and are happy and willing to answer any questions he may have. “The people at Saratoga are all very much about self-improvement and helping others grow.” This has encouraged Areeb to push himself and to learn as much as he can from his work and fellow Saratogans.
Areeb describes the culture at Saratoga as ‘people-oriented’ and that this is evident in the company’s core values. “These values guide how we work with each other and our clients, and no matter how young or new a person is, every employee’s input is heard, valued and respected. To be a Saratogan is to actualise the values of People Matter, Personal Excellence and Mutual Respect.”
