Tell us a little bit about what you do each day at Saviynt.
I am a Quality Engineer in the functional QA team, currently working in EIC migration. I was recently part of the AICCR scrum team. In my current role, I’m responsible for identifying, troubleshooting, and analyzing potential issues and bugs in our product post-migration and helping to deliver a clean feature to clients. As part of my role, I also mentor and help onboard new joiners to the team.
How did you get started in your present career? What do you love about the kind of work you do?
As a child, I always wanted to be an Army officer, and post National Cadet Corps, I cleared the written examination for Service Selection Board (recruitment exam to get into the Indian Armed Forces).However, due to an accident in camp, I couldn’t clear my medicals. So after some thought and much advice, I pursued my MCA and started gaining interest in computer science, which led me to join Saviynt. The part I love the most about my job is helping my team to deliver an impeccable product. I enjoy detecting and correcting things and gaining skills on how to be good at my job.
How did you adapt to the extra work-related stresses that stemmed from the pandemic?
In the beginning, it was difficult working in a completely remote work setup, especially the collaboration part. It sometimes resulted in extra hours at work, but I gradually adapted to the new way of working. The thing that helped me the most was defining boundaries between work and personal life. This helped me to manage time effectively which in turn became useful for learning and growing technically and personally.
In an increasingly remote workplace, what advice do you have on how to make video calls/virtual meetings more effective?
Given the current climate of remote work, calls and meetings should be planned well in advance so that time is used effectively for everybody. A person might be occupied with work at home, looking after family, or simply taking a break. At the same time, we should also avoid scheduling a lot of meetings to make sure we all have time to do our work. Teams could discuss and decide together and block common hours in their calendars so that there is dedicated time for work without disturbance.
What do you do when you aren’t working at Saviynt?
When I’m not working at Saviynt you would probably find me watching movies, cooking some special delicacies, and going out with friends. Stuffed kachori is best when I cook it, and I prepare it with a stuffing of peas, potatoes, and onions and serve it with green chutney.
These days, I have also taken a liking to table tennis, basketball, and swimming. My favorite way to relax is getting wrapped in a cozy blanket and watching any dog movie. I am currently watching House of Dragons and the movie which is close to my heart is Hachiko: A Dog Story. It demonstrates true loyalty and love.
What honors, awards or commendations have you won recently in your work life or personal life?
I recently received an award in the ‘Above And Beyond’ category for my work and contributions to the team. Earlier, I also received awards in the ‘Accountability’ category. During my NCC days, I was accorded the ‘Best Cadet Award’ and have also received numerous honors and awards in college, including being an ambassador of learning.
What would you say to someone who is considering working at Saviynt?
On top of the good technical exposure that Saviynt offers, I would encourage people to join for the work and team culture. Saviynt offers an environment where you can keep learning and growing. Come join us!
