How I started my career in tech

I am originally from India and have always been interested in innovation, computers, and technology. I was fortunate to attend one of the best engineering schools in my state, which laid the foundation for my career as a passionate technologist. I still remember that we had a computer science class that always started with “Write an algorithm for…” This exposure to different coding languages made it possible for me to tackle complex technical challenges even at the early stages of my career. Through my experiences, I have been able to master each challenge in my career with hard work and determination.

 

What drives my work

I am a hard-core techie who is very into coding. Solving problems that others find difficult challenges me and makes me feel good at the end of the day. Currently, I work as a Cloud professional and develop various tools on Cloud that can accelerate global business growth for our clients. I am passionate about helping clients design web solutions in a rapidly changing, tech-driven world. I have always been impressed by the strong technical & collaborative strength within Publicis Sapient. We all actively participate in knowledge sharing within different domains and this plays a major role in our global delivery model.

 

Supportive leadership and creating a new home

Along with active communication, the well-being of each employee is a priority for Publicis Sapient. The leadership team understood my desire to travel the world and gave me an opportunity I could not pass up. With their trust and confidence, I moved to the Nordics to experience life on the other side of the globe. Initially, I thought it would be difficult to adjust but my colleagues at the Malmö office warmly welcomed me and have always offered a helping hand. The Nordics team is like a family and there are always opportunities to grow and succeed.

 

"I always remind myself that everyone, even senior technology professionals, started somewhere and growth is a mind-set."

 

What helps me succeed and my advice to others

Although technology is a male-dominated domain, I’ve come across many women during my career who have been role models to me and inspired me to achieve my goals. Taking risks, listening to my intuition, and raising my hand on new projects have helped me become who I am today. My advice is to look out for the opportunities that will make you happy. Always be open to extending your skillset, connecting with others, and attending events like technical workshops. These are all great ways to learn and grow within your career. I always remind myself that everyone, even senior technology professionals, started somewhere and growth is a mind-set.

A few years ago, I attended a competition at a conference where I presented a complex, personalized customer journey solution directly to one of the leaders of a Content Management System. My solution helped me win the competition and I was lucky to have the ongoing support of family and Publicis Sapient co-workers as well. 

As a mother to a four-year-old, I juggle multiple responsibilities, but at the end of the day, I will always be thankful for the support I receive from my second family at Publicis Sapient.
