FDM Graduate Programme

Java Developer

-

Guildford
  • Worked as a graduate IT consultant on site for an FDM client, who specialises in providing enterprise software solutions for insurance companies.
  • Stepped up to a role that was intended for a senior developer in order to drive forward a key component in the integration of two radically different insurance systems, under time pressure and with no previous experience or expertise in the technologies involved. Rapidly learnt and applied a knowledge of XSLT, SOAP-UI and DB2 along with existing Java skills to help design and develop a mapping layer between the two systems.
  • Took the initiative to create a training document which was reused on many occasions, freeing up the time of senior developers who no longer had to transfer knowledge verbally.
  • Gained invaluable experience yielding insights into the successful running of enterprise-level development projects and effective maintenance of a large code base.
