For someone who misses traveling in the locals of Mumbai and the mouth-watering gastronomical vada paavs, moving out of Mumbai wasn’t an option. “Marriage brought me to Bangalore in 2005, says Nitya Krishnamoorthy, Senior Manager, Program Management. I was looking for a job after marriage and that’s when I heard about SapientNitro.”
An engineering graduate in electronics, Nitya had initial plans to pursue a degree in Chemical engineering for her passion in chemistry. As she pondered over the idea of a lucrative career, she knew, technology was her calling. “Technology has always been close to my heart. When I started my career as a Java developer at SapientNitro, the technologies then weren’t like the ones that you work on now; we had to familiarize ourselves with everything, be it Java or HTML. And I must admit, understanding the various technology-driven platforms was indeed a big challenge," says Nitya.
Across a span of nine years at SapientNitro, Nitya has successfully shouldered several multi-channel application projects from driving PMO and managing multiple initiatives under the SapientNitro Capabilities team like Hiring processes, Idea Labs, Competency Framework to even displaying her creative prowess as a producer for one of the clients of the studio.
“While my forte was travel and hospitality domain, I was keen to expand my wings and ﬂy across other domains as well. And that’s when in 2007, I made a transit to Program Management. Nurturing a passion to accept challenges is the DNA of SapientNitro and it’s because of the several roles that I have played here, I understand how to bridge the gap between technologists and creatives," says a conﬁdent Nitya.
Every project, big or small has something distinct about it. And especially by taking the lead, one gets to do everything in the spectrum of management and client relationship. “I like to try things and take risks on something that I haven’t done. It’s a great learning experience especially when you are running the show and managing a gamut of responsibilities from budgets to proﬁts to a huge team that is accommodative and enthusiastic. If my career has propelled to such a level, it’s all because of the never-ending opportunities that SapientNitro has bestowed on me.”
It’s always important to make people aware about who we are! At SapientNitro people are continuously sprouting with ideas. And that’s one reason why it has managed to evolve not only as a successful technology-driven company, but also as a new-breed of agency.
”There is a never-ending vibration in this organization that has kept me closely bound to it. And every time I feel like quitting, there is something new that pops up," says Nitya excitedly!
