I’m Delva Guyoncourt. I’m originally from Hong Kong. I’m a web developer at Fusion.je
What my job involves
I’m responsible for designing, coding and modifying websites, from layout to function and according to a client's specifications. Currently focus on Microsoft products, e.g. office 365, SharePoint, Teams etc.
How I got into this profession
I have a computer science degree.
Qualifications or skills needed for the role
Passion is the key, I always liked computers / the internet when I was young. I’m self-taught and made my own website when I was 12 with my 28.8K modern.
Being a woman in tech
I don’t label myself as a “woman in tech”. My job requires me to have patience and problem-solving skills, and I fulfill those requirements. I'm confident in what I'm doing and won't be stopped by my gender or my skin colour. I have been working with my team-mates for nearly ten years now and they’ve always supported me.
I’m a bit geeky. I like online gaming, movies and DIY.
What do I enjoy most about the job
Different projects have different problems, solving problems is the most satisfying.
An interesting project I've been involved in
I’ve loved working on both the Gov.je and States Assembly websites. The government websites contain a lot of information and are accessed by a huge amount of people. As a result there are always lots of challenges to overcome but making them look good and easy to use has been a huge success. I also enjoy working with the project teams and getting feedback from the users of the sites.
