I joined FINEOS in July 2012 as a Software Developer on their Graduate Program after completing a Higher Diploma in Software Engineering in NUI Maynooth. This course was an intensive one year conversion course designed for technical Degree holders with experience in a different discipline. Having worked as a Civil Engineer for 5 years I found myself faced with the prospect of a career change in 2010 as the Construction industry continued to decline. A career in IT seemed like the obvious choice at the time and thanks to the excellent support I have received in FINEOS I have found the whole transition very smooth.

During the first few months of the graduate program, FINEOS invested a huge amount of time and effort in terms of training and induction for the 12 graduates on the program. This training introduced us to the FINEOS product and the services that FINEOS provide, and allowed us to get straight to work when we each took up our respective roles across the various teams and departments in FINEOS.

Since joining the company I have been working in the Dublin office on a project for a major customer in the US market. To date I have gained invaluable experience, been given fantastic support by my team and have been tasked with work that is both challenging and varied. I have found FINEOS to be the type of company that constantly strive to grow its employees both in terms of their abilities and their contribution towards all aspects of the organisation. I would highly recommend FINEOS to anyone starting their career and looking to join a thriving and dynamic company. FINEOS are also very supportive of employees who wish to broaden their horizons by moving into different roles across the company or taking up opportunities in other FINEOS offices or client sites abroad. Overall I have found FINEOS to be a great place to work, both socially and professionally, and I look forward to the many exciting opportunities that lie ahead for FINEOS.
