Fancy a career change after furlough?

Technology jobs have never been more popular – or needed

The world of work has experienced massive upheaval over the last 2 years with Covid acting as the instigator for change for many people. Whether it’s because you’ve been made redundant, have decided that you want to change your work life balance or just because you want a career change, there has never been a better time to become a developer.

Here’s why:

1. It’s a growing market

The industry overall is fairing well during these hard times.
Covid and lockdown have made many companies think hard about how they work and many are changing their processes and systems to support this new, more flexible way of working. Great news for developers. Using a low code platform like FileMaker changes to systems and processes can be made quickly and are easy to implement.

2. Work From Home

In most cases, you can work from home. Most of the developers I know work primarily from home. Sure they have to attend meetings or go to the office at times but not every day. Which means you can work in the environment which is right for you and often at the time which suits you.

3. Creative Opportunities with Room to Grow

The developers here at CDS will all agree that every day is different and varied. They can be working on a business information system (BIS) one minute and recording artist booking systems the next.

In many respects, FileMaker should be considered similar to a Swiss Army knife. One day you are building a cost effective small, intuitive customer focussed ticketing system, easily finished within a few days. The next it’s a more complex Enterprise ERP solution with API links and other system integrations such as Sage accounting packages. As a result, you’ll never be bored or stop learning.

4. Supportive Team and Beyond

Our team of developers are positively encouraged to swap ideas and share both success stories and roadblocks. So you’d have all the support you need to succeed. On top of that Claris has a large online user community that love to share ideas and are always happy to help answer any questions so you should never be shy in reaching out.

5. Resources are free and available

There are ample available resources to teach yourself FileMaker. As a low code platform, FileMaker is a relatively simple coding platform to learn meaning you can become effective quickly and gain the confidence to succeed.

Check out the Claris Academy.

LinkedIn Learning also has material on line free to use.

So if you are interested in a career change and have the commitment to learn something new, consider becoming a FileMaker developer with Compass Data.

Reach out and get in touch with us for more information.

If you are a developer, (of FileMaker or any other language) and are looking for a new role please get in touch, we are always looking for good candidates to join our expanding team.
