I’m a Consultant with Valore Partners, specializing in C# Asp.Net/Core and Angular development. Coming from a more traditional enterprise role before Valore Partners, I was specifically interested in opportunities that would expose me to different technologies, teams, and ideologies to help to grow my skillset as a Developer as quickly as possible.
Technical skills are a given, but to really succeed as a Consultant I’ve learned that the keys are communication and adaptability. Communication is key for managing reasonable expectations between Consultant and client, as well as establishing deadlines, clarifying requirements and/or resource needs. Adaptability is important because a Consultant needs to be able to work in many different environments with completely different teams, but always with the same level of effectiveness. It’s not always easy, but Valore Partners has a great support system and way of doing things. They’ve also managed to foster a culture of sharing information and knowledge between Consultants as well, which has been invaluable in solidifying my understanding of both existing and new technologies. I’d describe my colleagues as very professional, passionate about technology, very well informed on said technology and always willing to help one and other.
Outside of work, I’m happily married and enjoy playing video games, cooking, playing tennis or playing with our cat. In my experience, Valore has provided a very good work life balance; I feel they are very respectful of my time. They have continuously provided me with the experiences and resources I need to grow as a developer and better myself as a professional. I’ll happily recommend them to any of my friends or family members who are looking to get into Consulting!
