“What I find most fascinating about my job, and the IT industry at large, is that I learn something new every day and that as a developer I’m continually finding different solutions for problems that arise in the project space. There is always something new to learn, and my mind is being challenged when I’m at work”, explains Baphumelele.
As a Developer at Saratoga, Baphumelele works on enhancing the user experience of a system for one of our international client projects, and adds new features to the system as required by the client. “On a daily basis, I write code and do system and database interaction testing which all involve many elements of problem-solving.”
When choosing a company to work for it’s important for Baphumelele that the company motivates her to build herself both personally and professionally, and that she is provided the platform to grow her career. “What I enjoy most at Saratoga is the career support they provide to their juniors. Being able to interact with seniors when I’m struggling with something, their willingness to help no matter what and also their very welcoming nature has been a great help with my career development.”
From her time at Saratoga, Baphumelele has come to learn the value of team work. “Before Saratoga, group work was one of the activities I found more challenging, but working at Saratoga has shown me the importance of teamwork and that you work better and achieve more in a team. I’ve also learnt the value of appreciating, relying and respecting your colleagues.”
