"One of the things that I enjoy about my job are no two days are the same. Each project and client is unique making for a very dynamic environment."

WHAT I DO

As a Digital Technology Senior Developer Manager, I spend the majority of my time managing the development team effort through all phases of the software development life cycle. My expertise is in e-commerce and the SAP Hybris platform. I help our clients understand the SAP Hybris platform capabilities and how to best leverage those capabilities for their business.

DAY IN MY LIFE

My days are spent supporting both client work and internal Accenture initiatives. This allows for me to work on a wide range of activities and as a result no two days are the same. This is one of the things that I enjoy most about my job.

Each project and client is unique making for a very dynamic and challenging environment. I spend my days interacting directly with our clients coming to understand the current state of their e-commerce business and working with them to get to the desired future state.

My time spent on internal Accenture activities is focused on helping Accenture continue to be one of the best places to work. I work as a career counselor helping Accenture employees navigate their careers at Accenture. I am also an Accenture Coaching Champion. As a Coaching Champion, I am responsible for fostering a coaching culture at Accenture. Finally, Accenture offers many opportunities for our employees to improve themselves through training. The training is led by Accenture’s most talented people who bring real life project experience to the classroom.

Outside the Office

Outside the office I enjoy a variety of athletic activities including platform tennis, golf and snowboarding. I also enjoy working on projects around our home including wood working, home theatre and automation. Most importantly, I enjoy planning and experiencing new adventures with my family.

MY ADVICE

Accenture has some of the most talented people in the world. The network you build here is invaluable. Leverage your network to both challenge and support you.
