Ka Man Lok – Self-made Tech specialist

Integration Consultant & MuleSoft Developer Ka Man Lok enjoys her role as one of our leading ladies in Tech. She talks about her journey qualifying as a specialist in this fast-evolving industry.

How did you join Deloitte?

I joined Deloitte through the graduate scheme as an analyst.

What are you responsible for in your role?

I am responsible for integration solution design and development using MuleSoft for my current project where we implemented an API-led architecture. This is a future-proof design that modularizes our applications to keep the architecture as flexible as possible. It ensures the integration layer is robust under the fast-evolving technologies.

How are you supported to work flexibly?

My personal development is always supported by my team. I was able to take one week off to complete an intensive Azure boot camp where I learnt valuable cloud knowledge and became a Microsoft Certified Solution Architect.

What was your most memorable moment on the job so far?

My most memorable moment on the job was the first-time people recognised me as a MuleSoft SME and integration specialist. I enjoy mastering the technical knowledge in depth but steering my career into this area was difficult without a computer science background. I am proud that I managed to achieve this with a lot of self-studying and also support from the people around me.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I love to go bouldering with a few friends. It is a perfect way to free my mind from stress and keep my body strong and healthy.
