I am Jordan, an ex-teacher from the United Kingdom, looking to join an exciting, fun, and fast-paced team to kickstart my career as a Developer.
While I very much enjoy self-studying and I do enjoy the sense of individual accountability and achievement, I would love the opportunity to learn from more experienced developers and truly grow into the best developer I can be - individually and collaboratively. I enjoy working with a team and bouncing ideas around between people, both technically and creatively. I have worked in a very multicultural team while I was living in Vietnam, teaching and coordinating the English Language department. I spent several years there and thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the different culture and challenges that it represents.
While I was in Vietnam, I made friends with some people working as developers and programmers. I got talking to them about their work and was immediately hooked. I love the logical nature of the languages and the way different approaches can be used to achieve the same result or solve a problem. Since then, I began studying online and found that development was something I thoroughly enjoyed and have since developed a real passion for. The most exciting thing for me is that I never have to stop learning (I can even learn a lot from a simple Google search!). This has become a hobby and a passion for me and I love that the field is continuously developing and improving, allowing me to constantly upskill, gain new knowledge and offer more as a developer as time goes by. I am extremely willing to learn, listen to feedback and improve myself - both personally and professionally. I believe my excitement and enthusiasm for all areas of software development can bring a fresh passion and outlook to the team and I am eager to learn more about the technologies you use.
I am currently in Helsinki and I hope to relocate here permanently with my Finnish partner, who is trying her best to teach me Finnish (mutta suomen kieleni ei ole hyvä). I am extremely excited at the prospect of being able to work in one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world and immerse myself in Finnish culture - and, of course, enjoy a daily sauna!
All in all, I believe this role is the perfect opportunity for me to hone my skills and become part of a fantastic working environment at a company who can offer me just as much as I can offer them. Thank you for considering me for this position. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully starting my new career.
