When a company treats its people well, they’re far more likely to stick around. That was the case for Andrew Coulter of Liberty IT.

Andrew Coulter carried out a placement year at Liberty IT while studying computer science at college.

During that time, he was introduced to many new cutting-edge technologies that he never would have gotten the chance to interact with at university.

Now, Coulter is in Liberty IT’s graduate programme as an associate software engineer, working with AWS, Node.JS and machine learning tech.

He told Siliconrepublic.com why his internship made him decide to pursue a career in software engineering at Liberty IT, and what skills he deems to be most important.

“I’d say the most important skill for working at Liberty IT is the ability to continuously learn. There’s a lot of new technologies here, most of which universities haven’t quite got around to teaching yet,” Coulter said.

“So it’s very important that you have the ability to learn new things and to be continuously learning, as things change so quickly in this environment.”
