While scouting through a memorable eleven plus long years of hardwork and a bandwagon of opportunities with a big technology player, looking for a comparable job elsewhere wasn’t easy for Ali Salman Rizvi, Senior Manager, Technology at SapientNitro.
Says Salman, “I was extremely impressed by the SapientNitro interview process. From a plain white board where I was able to splash down my plans to the interviewers to the ﬁve day Sapient Start program which opened a window to an entirely new work culture, I have treasured every moment thus far.”
Having had a brilliant foray in academics, a gold medalist in Physics from DU and BIT (Birla Institute of Technology) Mesra, Salman has always been fascinated by the concept of transformation, which he witnessed when SapientNitro morphed from a hardcore technology corporate into a new breed of agency breaking boundaries at the intersection of technology and story.
“Be it technology, marketing consulting or agency work, SapientNitro has always had that potential to adapt, align and evolve not only as a pioneer but also as a leader. And with the amalgamation of the right ideas with the right people, delivering remarkable solutions even in complex situations is natural.”
On a daily basis one gets to see varied aspects of project execution from thick timelines to ambiguous guidelines to bringing in across-country team that can understand the nuances of the project. “For one of the oﬀ-shore projects which was quite big in terms of complexity and timeline, the execution involved re-engineering of the sales platform. With the best of my built-in team, we lined up our thoughts together and came up with 30 odd usable architectural components which eventually got recognized and opened the gates for several other lines of businesses. It gives you a feeling of pride to have done something remarkable amidst so many complexities, and most importantly when the client values your contribution," says a proud Salman!
For someone who has been an ardent follower of WWE, Salman sees SapientNitro delivering in the light of this credo, Hustle, Loyalty and Respect! Salman elaborates, “Hustle is all about the craft and creative work and the pride associated with it, while loyalty is what we maintain towards the purpose of the clients and respect is for the individuals and the never-ending team spirit.”
While there are so many different things happening on a daily basis, it is important to keep a balance across all sectors. “One should be an all-rounder to take on everything both at a micro and macro level and if you have the talent and passion, you deﬁnitely get rewarded at SapientNitro.”
