Tell us about your role. What does a day in your life at Capgemini look like?

As a Developer/Data Engineer, I work with other developers and testers to process and transform data objects for various business areas, such as Marketing, Finance, Supply Chain, based on the new story or change request requirements provided by the client’s Source Team(s).

Completion of this process is within 2-week sprints, working through the Development, QA and UAT environments.

 Daily stand ups occur amongst the team to ensure consistent progress and communication throughout the sprint, which also provide us opportunities to discuss blockers, need and next steps where resource can be supplied where needed as a team effort. Knowledge transfer sessions are also presented each week on how to progress the sprint, where clarification on objects from the client is provided.

– What’s the best thing about working at Capgemini?

My experience at Capgemini has been an immersive and explorative journey so far, being able to get stuck into projects and community guilds where I have had the pleasure of meeting people across the company and getting actively engaged in the areas that I am passionate about, such as sustainability and diversity and inclusion. These communities are not only paramount to social and mental wellbeing, but also great for increasing visibility, opportunities and learning development.

However, the best thing about working at Capgemini is the flexible/hybrid working capability where employees are entrusted and more responsible for delivering their work. Work/Life balance is highly supported by the company and is a focal point shown in the company’s policies, workshops and resources, and more. With this, I feel that Capgemini understands that we may have other priorities that can be supported by this flexibility, which helps us to feel empowered in our everyday lives and allows us to be most productive.

– What makes you proud to work at Capgemini?

Being a data engineer presents many challenges and opportunities that encourage you to think unconventionally and, to do that, all types of skills and experiences are needed.

Capgemini sees real value in diversity and inclusion, for our teams, our clients, and the company. Valuing the richness and complex ability when applying wider perspectives and innovation to any given challenge and solution, particularly when engaging with stakeholders and driving sustainable strategies through the power of technology.

The tech industry needs more diversity and is in the pinnacle position to lead communities, businesses and global societies out of real-world crises and towards a better future for all.

Bridging the digital skills gap by promoting active learning in technical skills and partnering with various training organisations as a new-found way to cultivate a diverse talent pool, Capgemini’s active commitments, engagements and continuous development on equality, diversity and inclusion makes me proud to work at Capgemini.

– How are you working towards the future you want?

Through networking, seeking, and identifying the communities to join internally and externally, is one of the main ways I am working towards the future I want. I am expanding my network and eliciting conversations that are equipping me in the navigation of steering my career in tech, incorporating sustainability and diversity & inclusion fundamentals to shape the future I want. Within these communities, I am building relationships and discovering opportunities, letting others know of what I’d be keen to get involved in. These forums also provide as platforms to communicate with peers, seek help and unpack challenges to both professional and personal challenges. There are so many groups within and outside of Capgemini, and it is looking for and taking opportunity within them that are proving very valuable.

Additionally, there are lots of learning and development resources and platforms that are free to use or can be provided for through the company. This support is allowing me to continue to develop my skills in tech and keep me aligned to the new and emerging products and services that are at the forefront on the industry, ensuring I grow with the industry as it paves its way through to the future.

– What advice would you give to someone joining Capgemini?

Having not previously worked in the tech industry, I have become accustomed to imposter syndrome and understand that there is a lot to learn with the ever-evolving world of technology, which can be overwhelming. However, with the willingness to learn and communicate, you can easily appease these feelings and begin to shape your role.

There are lots of transferable skills that are recognised within Capgemini that are proving valuable between building and working with teams. Skills in communication, strategy and project management, and the likes, are essential for developing relationships, building ideas and collaborating with others.

Therefore, my main piece of advice is ‘get comfortable with being uncomfortable because everyone is learning as technologies and software evolves – “including the experts” – and make the roles your own with the skills and experience that you bring’.
