“After gaining several years of experience as an IT specialist/project manager in Japan, I moved to Berlin with my family. There I could have continued my previous profession, but I didn’t. Instead, I tried to listen to my heart and do something new. Instead, I tried to listen to my heart and dare something new – which led me to programming/development and specifically „coding“. I had been working in this field as a Project Manager for quite some time and had worked with many developers – until I wanted to be one myself.
Of course I had doubts if I wouldn’t be too old or if it’s just risky to start something from scratch. But after I quite by chance found a job ad from NEXT Data Service and did the interview with Stephan Sommer-Schulz, all those doubts were gone! I am very grateful that I was able to start my career as a developer here.
Besides the already exciting job as a Fullstack Developer, I really love what a diverse team we are. This is not just about things like nationality or gender, but that NEXT really appreciates different opinions and backgrounds. This brings a lot of fun to my work and encourages my creativity to shine through.“
