Today we are introducing a superstar team member… Marley!
Marley recently joined Exo Digital in a graduate position.
Marley was in the travel and tourism industry for the past 7 and a half years, with COVID happening obviously things really changed for Marley. Unfortunately the industry has really ground to a standstill. So Marley made the decision in March 2020 to start figuring out what her new passion will be.
Marley began by thinking about the parts of being a travel agent that she loved the most, which was building the itineraries, building peoples dream holidays! So Marley really stepped away and really thought about the skills involved in that and why she enjoyed it, and from there she began to play around with coding in her spare time.
Marley really enjoyed it, and ended up doing a bootcamp course whilst working full time. As soon as the position at Exo became available Marley jumped on board to get her foot in the door.
The course Marley took was 6 months long, and ended up calling herself a graduate again, after already having a career in another industry. Marley really jumped on the opportunity to learn from Exo, and find the team here so lovely (naww shucks!) that she feels she will be here forever! And we would be so grateful to have her too!
At the moment Marley is engaged in full-stack development, which means Marley gets to work with lots of different aspects of development. Right now Marley is working on a project called Streamgear, which involved Marley doing both the front and back end development work. Marley works in the server side part of the project with coding the functions, then builds out our design teams work on the front end of the piece which is what users will see.
Another part of the role Marley has is doing client showcases, Marley was able to liaise with the client with the rest of the team to then get their feedback and make changes.
We’re so thrilled to have Marley on board, and we’re so excited to be part of Marley’s journey to pivot out of this pandemic. For us having Marley as part of our team really is a silver lining to living through COVID.
Thanks so much for being part of Exo Digital, Marley!
