Ever wondered what a career as a Business Analyst looks like, what a day in the life of a User Experience Designer is, or how to get into Game Development?

From September through December, SIGNAL hosted a series of fun and informative events featuring 14 local tech industry professionals, as part of our Tech Careers & Pizza Nights in Christchurch and Dunedin. 

Syen Nik, Head of Machine Learning at Jade Software Corporation, presents his journey into Data Science.

Our guests came from a diverse range of career backgrounds, showcasing the wide variety of skills across different tech roles. 

They also described what attributes make for great employees considering a career in tech, and how your existing degree and experiences can launch you into an exciting new career.
