Workhuman software engineer Gillian Rowan talks about why being innovative is such an important skill for her role.

When you think of the skills software engineers need, your mind will probably first jump to technical skills and the ability to code. We’ve also talked a lot about communication being a vital skill for almost any profession.

However, Gillian Rowan, a software engineer at Workhuman, spoke to about the skills she needs on a daily basis. While coding was certainly up there, she also talked about the need to be innovative.

“Innovation, trying to come up with a new idea for the problem that we’re trying to solve and then communication with other teams as well,”  she advised.
