  • The Charlotte-based fintech mortgage lender has experienced substantial growth year after year, and they still have plenty of open positions to check out.

Q&A with Stephanie Flowe, a Jr. Encompass App Developer

Note: Stephanie joined WCM in 2015 with an entry-level position, taught herself to code and moved into the tech program. 

What does a junior encompass developer do?

I hook up all the fun things that our company does behind the scenes. I write in C# code and work with API’s and SDK.

  • In layman’s terms, just lots of coding, basically. I make everything work.

What made you want to become a developer?

I needed a challenge. So [after shuffling around in other roles at Wyndham Capital], I applied and that’s when I realized that we did all this stuff on the back end, and I was like, “that’s what I want to do.”

And I started taking basic classes and thought “this is really what I want to do.” It’s like learning a new language. I mean, it really is.

At Wyndham Capital, I’ve really been exposed to innovative things that a lot of companies might not be doing.

Why should someone work for WCM?

I think Wyndham Capital really has a great culture, especially in a tech space. Even though our team is all remote, I still have team interaction. You’re recognized for the hard work that you’re doing and they respect your time as an employee.

I literally learn something new every day, and I am so fulfilled by that. I never want to stop using my brain, so I got into the right role.
