Application Development Specialist
"The most satisfying moment is when somebody thanks you for helping him or her, reducing a large workload."
I am a software developer; automation engineer and team lead responsible for developing small solutions that benefit the operational teams. Most of the time, these teams have to deal with a large amount of data that needs to be quickly processed and interpreted to act fast and make good decisions. Sometimes there are no available tools that allow them to obtain the wanted results, and this is where my team and I come in: we build small applications that process a large amount of data using various programming and database technologies that allow us to deliver results in a short amount of time.
Outside the project, I am a Career Counselor, trying to provide the best advice to my counselees on their journey in Accenture and a Brand Ambassador, taking part in various initiatives, events, programs dedicated to the IT community.

Every day I get the chance to come up with new ideas that improve the processes used by the operational teams. The most satisfying moment is when somebody thanks you for helping him or her, reducing a large workload.
I always find time to keep in touch with my colleagues and assist them whenever they encounter a roadblock. This keeps our morale high and helps us be in top form.
At the end of the day, I get a chance to unwind by either playing video games, playing the guitar, or learning something new.
"Ensure that you find a way to relax at the end of the day – being well-rested, being in a relaxed state of mind and having good morale generate the best results."
When it comes to learning, I find IT similar to Medicine: To stay in the game, you have to learn something new every day.
