When I was looking for a new job in 2019, my aspiration was to move to the United Kingdom and work for an organization that had deep technical chops braided on strong culture and vision.
I’d spent about a decade working for a Bank’s IT department where I was fortunate enough to work directly with a financial services business and co-create solutions which enabled them to grow digitally. I wanted to work for a company that respected innovation, design-thinking and modern engineering to accelerate the next generation of solutions and, in the process, build world-class fin-tech.
These last two years at PS have felt like flight to my imagination as I see my work through three clear values:
- Doing the right thing does not always mean doing the thing right. Our teams work with honesty and bravery to help our clients think beyond the ordinary.
- Experimentation is key to innovation. Imbibing Test and Learn in your solution with moderation can steadfast clients on their Transformation Journeys.
- Value is the currency of our business. We measure value and use it to frame what we do now and next.
My day to day is far from boring
As a Director of Technology, there are two dimensions of my role – Technology Consulting and Delivery. A part of my job includes helping clients shape their transformation roadmap by identifying the engineering opportunities that will make material difference. This involves taking them through the journey of value streams in their business, identifying leading and lagging indicators and mapping them to the interventions supported by a business case. This exercise is generally data-driven and helps build their technology maturity radars.
Another aspect of my role is delivery of the programs where as an architect my role is to drive the solution with a design-thinking approach, help teams move in the right direction, and build reusable assets in the process.
