We would like to give a big welcome to Zahabiya Mamujee (Zabs) to the Xibis team. This is the first summer internship that we have had, and we are all looking forward to some great work.
Zabs is studying A-Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry and Computer Science at Leicester High School for Girls. When she gets her results next summer, we are sure she will excel, especially with setting a precedent of 1 A^, 7 A*s and 3 As at GCSE level. Zabs is looking to go to university and will be looking to apply to read Computer Science at Cambridge, Imperial, Bristol, and Durham.
Zabs has programming experience from her studies at GCSE and now A-Level. She has experience of Python programming and some C#. She has also self-taught HTML, CSS and Java. Zabs also recently attended a healthcare hackathon looking at how to solve hospital bed blocking using blockchain.
We have placed Zabs with our QA team, where she will support them with some initial testing of various projects which include apps for Pets at Home and Vets4Pets. We have also identified a couple of internal projects for Zabs to get her teeth into some development work.
During her stay, we hope to give her some insight and experience into the numerous facets of the development lifecycle.
It is going to be great having Zabs as part of the team, and we hope she enjoys her time at Xibis and gains the experience she wants from working with a software development company.
Who knows, once she has finished university, she may want to come and work for us again.
