To turn my interest into a career I’m passionate about, I decided to become a software developer. The skills I learned skills led me to a career at Deloitte.
Tell us about your career path at Deloitte (How long have you worked for Deloitte, how has your career evolved?)
Over the past three years at Deloitte, I have seen myself growing and learning continuously. I had started my Information Technology career as a Business Intelligence and Data Visualization developer, where I got the opportunity to interpret customer requirements and visualize data for representation. I worked on several rapid prototype visualization tools to solve complex business problems.
As much as I enjoyed visualization, I was also fascinated by the backend architecture, end-to-end deployment of applications, and the exciting impact a few lines of code had on automating so many functionalities.
Interestingly, at Deloitte, I found an opportunity to explore automation and complex application deployments. As strange and difficult it may sound to pivot my career path that changed my skillsets substantially, I wanted to seize that moment and explore a whole new genre of work. During the past three years, I have evolved as a full-time DevOps engineer working on tools like which has been challenging yet exciting for me.
