Immigrating to Canada: How he landed an Analyst Developer position in Montréal

Olivier Riccini is a programmer-analyst at CGI. Before that, his objective was to leave his home to venture abroad in order to change his life. He chose Le Wagon because it was the best ranked of all the coding bootcamps.

 “The most important thing is to try. We must not stop just because we think it's going to be too hard or because we don’t understand something. You have to take a chance and keep learning all the time.”

Olivier Riccini chose Le Wagon because he needed a program to help him learn very quickly, and because it was the best ranked of all the coding bootcamps.

As expected, Le Wagon was quite intense. We learned a lot, and after it was finished, we knew how to code an application from A to Z. It really met my expectations.

In addition, the bootcamp provided him with a solid foundation  to go deeper into the tech world, and helped him establish a huge network, enabling him to meet people who helped him land a job.

“It's a whole package, both technical and networking.”

At the end of the 9-week program, he landed two contracts, one of them thanks to a Le Wagon alumnus. This helped him consolidate his skills and to land a permanent position in Montreal.

The code injection that changed Rui's life

I studied computer systems in university, but by the age of 37, I had not done much in the area. For ten years, I worked in an insurance company, Império Bonança, as an automobile expert. What made me work there for so long was the flexibility the job allowed. But in 2014, I felt many changes in the company and in the business itself, so I started looking for other options.

BCG to bootcamp - always chasing the learning zone

My philosophy is to always be learning by putting myself in new, scary situations. I think this initially led me to jump from mechanical engineering to the business world at Boston Consulting Group. It certainly played a part in me deciding to learn to code at Le Wagon and take on the role of tech lead and co-founder at Stotles. It has been a wild ride, and the only thing I know for sure is that the ride is just getting started.

Retail to Le Wagon, the springboard for building my mobile app

Before Le Wagon I was a sales assistant at a retail store, and was doing this for just under 5 years. I’ve always had an interest in technology and knew eventually this is the sector in which I would like to build a career, but didn’t have the relevant experience or qualifications, so I took the plunge and embarked on the Le Wagon bootcamp. I'm now working for Hoxton Digital, a web agency built by alumni, and I'll never look back.
