The Develomentor podcast is a twice a week, interview-based show designed to help you find your path in technology! Each interview explores the career path and lessons learned of individuals who have built successful careers in technology across a range of roles. Our goal is to help you learn about a specific career, what’s required to be successful in it, and how that role is changing. Stick with us and you’ll meet IT product managers with social work degrees and heads of sales with engineering degrees. You’ll meet engineers who “got all the degrees” and others who did a six week coding bootcamp and are running the show. You’ll also meet academics and practitioners across a wide range of industries. You might even meet a few artists. Most importantly, we hope you’ll meet your calling.

So good!

I’ve recently found Develomentor because one of my friends was a guest on a podcast. Since then listened to a few episodes and love variety of guests and interesting conversations! The host is also so good at asking thoughtful questions. I’m excited to keep listening and learning more about people’s journeys!

Fantastic resource for developers and enthusiasts

As someone who is interested in pursuing a career in tech, but who isn’t a developer myself, I was unsure if this was the right podcast for me. But after listening to several sessions on everything from entrepreneurship, to career development, as well as all of the other work that goes into supporting web development and engineering, I know I’ll be a long time subscriber to Grant’s podcast!

Really approachable, with fantastic guests. Can’t wait to see who he brings on in the future!

Great source of inspiration

It’s not just about the code — it’s about all the talent that supports any high tech company. Grant does a great job of surfacing the unique journeys talent takes to make it in tech.
