Prior to joining the Align program, I was working as an advertising analyst with a BS in Marketing. While I enjoyed delivering actionable insights to clients through data visualization, I became interested in leveraging computer science to tame the ever-increasing volume of data available.
Coming from a non-technical background, the bridge portion of the Align program stood out to me. After speaking with coding boot-camp graduates and software development engineers, it became clear to me that this program would provide me with the foundation required to transition my career.
My aim is to become a back-end developer for a large and innovative tech company where I can hone my skills as a software engineer.
