What I do

As Application Development Manager, I mainly work as a technical architect for a large European Bank where I work with a team of architects on designing the best possible solutions for the bank’s customers. We are currently working on a solution that will provide even more reliable access to the bank’s online services in the future. I also work closely with Google through our Accenture Google Business Group, helping our clients utilize the Google Cloud Platform in the best possible manner.

Currently, I am working on an exciting project where the client is moving data from a number of on-prem systems on to Google Cloud Platform, enabling the business to derive business insights across their system and thereby make even more data driven decisions.

A day in my life

Due to the pandemic, I am working from home at the moment where I enjoy watching training material or conference presentations about mainly technical topics e.g. the Google Cloud Platform. The morning normally starts with a daily huddle, allowing me to check in with the team and coordinate activities. I normally have a couple of whiteboard sessions or working meetings where the group work on a given problem or review a given solution.

Otherwise, I spend my time designing, validating and document technical solutions. This normally involves reading a bunch of documentation, some coding, and drawing a number of diagrams where the end product is a backlog of required tasks and a document describing how a given capability should be implemented. I normally also work with the teams doing the actual implementation e.g. proving clarifications in case needed. I also work on a number of Google related activities e.g. helping colleagues with their certification, sales activities, and provide technical guidance to clients interested in the Google Cloud Platform.

What is great about Accenture is that the company focuses on personal development and encourage people to get certified and have good training facilities available. Moreover, Accenture has partnerships with all major technology companies e.g. providing early access to new features.

When I am not working, I have a house project and two small children that take up most of my spare time, but I enjoy mountain biking and skiing when time allows it.

My advice

You will never be the best at everything, so focus on your strengths, and team up with others that can bring the skills you lack to the table. However, you should still try to understand the challenges your colleagues face to facilitate efficient collaboration.
