14+ years in the IT industry had an opportunity to work with distinguished organizations in
Consulting – Quinnox Consultancy, Capgemini, Palo IT
Product Development – Oracle
Banking Industry – Barclays Bank (Retail, Private & Wealth Banking), IndusInd, Lloyds Bank, NAB, CIC, DBS, SCB, etc…
Started journey as a pure manual functional tester, in Aug 2007 with Quinnox working for Barclays Bank (Retails division). The First 4 years spend, learning different aspects of functional, nonfunctional, business-centric requirements, expectations & deliveries. The move to Oracle (as a consultant from Capgemini) in 2010, marked his first step diving deep into project engineering – right from requirement gathering, analysis, use case design, business flow, prototyping, development challenges, feature-performing functional, non-functional tests. Spend about 20 months with Oracle, as a member of the core team developing NGP, which is now known as OBP (Oracle Banking Platform) for National Australi Bank (NAB).
Then started a new phase of his career, working with Barclays Bank (Wealth division) as a perm employee. Coming from Consulting experience, working with Bank was not that difficult. He had to adjust to the additional responsibility of ETE implementation + supporting Business Units in production. It was a long 30-month journey, which grew his experience further on Business Level challenges & what Business needs from IT.
It’s not always, complex software solutions, sometimes basic software solutions are good enough to solve major business problems.
A permanent move to Singapore in 2015, marks a special event in his personal & professional life. Here I joined Palo IT, an amazing people-oriented, delivery-driven, customer-centric, BCORP certified IT consulting. “Technology for GOOD” is at the heart of companies culture. The learning just never stops, the leadership at Palo is all about creating a safe space to fail, create challenging opportunities, encourage learning & training. He is thrilled by his experience so far, every day is a learning opportunity for leaders & dear colleagues.
