Carmel Eve becomes a STEM Ambassador to promote tech in schools.

At endjin we are passionate about inclusivity and diversity in the industry.

With the aim of promoting and supporting women entering the technology industry, Carmel has become a STEM ambassador in her local area.

Through this, she has been talking to local students and teachers about the different paths into the technology industry. In these sessions she has discussed how she entered the industry from a science background, and the fact that you don't need to specialise early in order to be successful in tech.

There are many routes into the industry, and many people (students and teachers alike) worry that you need to focus on computing from the offset in order to succeed.

However, Carmel's message is this:

Logical problem solving is the single most important tool you need when going into the software industry. The building up of complex solutions from small logical steps is the fundamental concept which underpins all of programming.

And, this logical approach to deconstructing complex problems is something which is crucial to all science-based learning. In this way, science equips you for many of the challenges you will face as you enter a career in technology.

The idea that you need to go down a computer science route from the offset may discourage a lot of young people from seeing a career in software development as a possibility.

Through promoting the idea that there are many paths in the industry, Carmel hopes to open the door to students who don't know what they want to do at 15/16 (and really, who does?).

In this video, Carmel discusses these concepts in more detail:

Carmel Eve

Carmel has recently graduated from our apprenticeship scheme.

Over the past four years she has been focused on delivering cloud-first solutions to a variety of problems. These have ranged from highly-performant serverless architectures, to web applications, to reporting and insight pipelines and data analytics engines. She has been involved in every aspect of the solutions built, from deployment, to data structures, to analysis, querying and UI, as well as non-functional concerns such as security and performance.

Throughout her apprenticeship, she has written many blogs, covering a huge range of topics. She has also given multiple talks focused on serverless architectures. The talks highlighted the benefits of a serverless approach, and delved into how to optimise the solutions in terms of performance and cost.

She is also passionate about diversity and inclusivity in tech. Last year, she became a STEM ambassador in her local community and is taking part in a local mentorship scheme. Through this work she hopes to be a part of positive change in the industry.

Carmel won "Apprentice Engineer of the Year" at the Computing Rising Star Awards 2019.
