Why Choose Tech?

The tech industry is ever growing. Glassdoor reported that 22 of its 50 best jobs are tech related. Here are some reasons why we believe pursuing a career in technology, is a smart choice:

  1. Job Security and High Demand- The world is becoming increasingly digitized, and with that comes the need for technology experts to build, maintain, and improve the systems that drive our daily lives. Software development is a critical component of this transformation, making it one of the most in-demand careers in the industry. As a software developer, you can expect to have job security and a stable income, as well as opportunities for growth and advancement.
  2. Constant Learning and Growth- Technology is a field that is constantly evolving, which means there is always something new to learn and explore. In the tech world, you are challenged with keeping up with the latest trends, technologies, and techniques. This continual learning process ensures that you will never be bored or stagnant in your career! It also means that you will have the opportunity to grow and expand your skills, making you a valuable asset to any organization.
  3. Creative Problem Solving- With technology changing every day, no one will always have the right answer. Sometimes a change will be new to an entire team which can leave you tasked with finding creative solutions to these new challenges. This requires a combination of critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. It is a challenging but rewarding process that will keep you engaged and motivated.
  4. Flexibility and Work-Life Balance- One of the most appealing aspects of pursuing a career in technology is the flexibility it provides. Many technology companies offer flexible work schedules, remote work options, and the ability to work from anywhere in the world. This level of flexibility allows you to balance your work and personal life, making it easier to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
  5. Impact on Society- Technology is transforming the world in significant ways, from improving healthcare and education to making our daily lives more efficient and convenient. Working in the tech industry you are given the opportunity to be part of this transformative process and make a meaningful impact on society. Whether you are building a new application or improving an existing system, your work can have a far-reaching impact on people’s lives!

Intern To Leader

At Spigot we love to invest in our employees and help them grow into what they want to be in their career. A perfect example of this is Jordin. Jordin started as an intern for Spigot back in October 2018 and has now become the team lead of Android engineering. I sat down with him and asked him a few questions about his internship and his time at Spigot.

Where did you go to college and what is your degree in?

Jordin went to Florida Gulf Coast University and got his bachelor’s degree in software engineering. He graduated in 2020.

How did you start at Spigot?

There was an internship fair at FGCU and Jordin was walking around talking to different companies. He came across our table and started talking to Shayna about what his interest were and what he was going to school for. He said he felt like everything just clicked when he was talking to us about our opportunities and culture. He then became an intern until he graduated from FGCU but he said after the first 6 months, he didn’t feel like he was just an intern. He was able to contribute to the team in major ways and felt more like a part time employee.

When did you realize that you wanted to become a full-time employee of Spigot?

Jordin realized he wanted to become a full-time employee of Spigot not too long after he began his internship. He said during his internship he found “People get paid to have fun here” and loved the culture. He said that most companies go through the honeymoon phase with employees, but he felt that Spigot continued to be great and continued to care about him learning the industry. He enjoyed his internship because he was able to learn firsthand from people who have been in the industry for a while, and it was more than the basic knowledge you get from school. “Spigot invested time and put effort into teaching me”, Jordin says.

What is your favorite thing about Spigot?

His favorite thing about Spigot is our culture. The fact that Spigot is a large company, but we still have a small company/ start-up vibe. He said that even as an intern he felt there were very little barriers, and he was free to give his opinions and ideas and they were taken into consideration. They weren’t always accepted but they were never brushed off by someone. Jordin loved the feeling of being able to make a major impact within the company which is not something interns are able to do at other companies.

What is your current role at Spigot? How did you get there?

Jordin is now the team lead of android engineering. He began as an intern for software engineering and was just working on basic webpages and data collection programs. Six months into his internship he began working on android launchers. Once he graduated from college he was brought on full time as a software engineer and a 14 months later because the team lead!

What is your end goal?

Jordin would love to eventually run his own company since he enjoys entrepreneurship. He likes being in a leadership role and looks up to Danny who is our CTO. Jordin says, “Eventually he wants to be the guy with all the knowledge and the one people are able to go to with any product related questions and ideas.”.

What is a highlight of your time at Spigot?

During his time at Spigot, the mobile team hit a major goal. Once they hit this milestone, they celebrated in the office by popping champagne and going down to Fort Myers Beach. There, the team rented Jet Skis for the day! He said, “It felt like his team just won the championship everyone was so excited.”

Any advice you would pass on to people thinking about getting an internship?

“Doing something is better than just sitting around thinking about doing something”, Jordin says. He said you can do anything you’re interested in but to make sure you have side projects and are trying to learn things that are outside of your schoolwork. That stands out to employers and helps you in the long run.

What is an Entry Level Web Developer?

Web development is a quickly growing field. More and more businesses are expanding their online presence, or are moving beyond their basic websites to more capable and feature-rich web apps. Entry-level, or junior, web developers are web developers who are at an early stage in their career or those that don’t have much experience in the industry.

What does an entry-level web developer do?

Generally, entry-level or junior web developers will create new websites and applications, make changes to existing websites, and provide advice on website maintenance and management. Entry-level developers may work under the supervision of a more senior developer.

The specific work an entry-level developer does really depends on who they are working with or working for. In a web development or marketing agency, developers may create, update and maintain websites for many clients at once. In-house web developers may only focus on maintaining their employer’s website, and making changes or adding new content as needed. Junior and entry-level developers can be involved at different stages of the development process. They could be used at the planning and brainstorming phase, the coding and building of the site, or simply cleaning up a project done by another developer.

How do you get a web developer job with no experience?

Many companies only seek developers with a set amount of experience. However, others are willing to hire young talent who display other traits to complement their basic knowledge of web development. If you haven’t worked as a developer before, you can still get a junior or entry-level developer job.

Improve Your Web Development Skills

If you’re trying to get your first job as a web developer, you don’t necessarily need prior experience in a web developer role. The best way to make yourself valuable to potential employers is to develop and improve your web development skills. You can do this by doing coding bootcamps or by using online tools to learn how to create awesome websites and web applications.

Build a Portfolio

The best way to showcase your web development abilities is to put together a portfolio of your work. Even if you don’t have work from a previous job, you can still build a portfolio of websites and responsive web apps you’ve built. You can build a website for a fake business or even start your own e-commerce site to gain some experience and display your web development knowledge.

How much do beginner web developers make?

As with any job or career path, salaries can range greatly for junior and entry-level web developers. According to Glassdoor, Junior Web Developers have an average base pay of $58,832 per year. You can obviously earn more if you’re in a place like San Francisco or New York City. Your pay will also depend on your skills and what the company is looking for.

If you’re able to acquire new skills quickly and learn on the job, you can potentially get promoted fairly quickly to a Web Developer or Senior Web Developer. This can lead to a 10 to 15 percent increase in your pay.

What are the Benefits of a Web Developer Career?

  • Web Development is in high-demand: Web developers are highly sought-after as more industries build internet functionality into their products and services. Web developer jobs are expected to increase by 8% by 2029, so there will be more jobs available in the coming years.
  • High Paying Career: Because of the high-demand for web developers, the career generally pays very well. Your compensation will typically grow as you gain experience.
  • Flexible Career Paths: Web development offers a lot of flexibility. You’ll likely work on many types of projects over the course of your career as a web developer. You can work for one company or agency, or you can do freelance work for multiple clients. You can also go into other industries like digital marketing or app development with your web dev skills.
  • Possibility of Remote Work: Many tech companies have shifted their policies to allow remote work, or at least the ability to work from home part of the time. This flexibility draws a lot of people into careers in tech and specifically web development.
