Projects are exciting and there are different places where we can contribute.

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

Every day, I can dive into new, exciting challenges from developing new prototypes to AI approaches and cloud-native architectures. I’m the chief architect for our biggest public customer in Nuremberg and I am responsible for various system interfaces as well as for developing the technology roadmap and solutions to problems for my client. Each day consists of interaction and collaboration as my work is connected to not only different units within our project system, but also across other systems within the client’s business.

What’s the best thing about working at Capgemini?

At Capgemini, because we have so many challenges and exciting projects that push us to be bold and explore something new, I feel like an entrepreneur. Not only are my assigned projects very exciting, but I have so many different places that I can contribute to, meaning there is no such thing as a dull day. This makes my life at Capgemini really adventurous and colorful. Also, I call the colleagues in our company family because everyone helps each other, and I enjoy being part of such a great family at Capgemini. It’s great.

What makes you proud to work at Capgemini?

At Capgemini, we are encouraged to build our strengths collectively, working together towards creating a big impact. For example, as part of a data science challenge I took part in, I was teamed up with other people in the business to develop the best data science model that would help find anomalies in the ocean in partnership with LoVe Ocean Observatory. With this opportunity, we got the exposure to meet and come together with people from different parts to build something that positively impacts the environment.

Working in a well-networked and interdisciplinary manner means we have the opportunity to grow, expand our experiences, and develop truly new innovations that set us apart.

To further build our network and bring people together, Capgemini also holds frequent events such as the Via Carolina, where each team runs 10km from the Czech Republic to Nuremberg. I really enjoy these kinds of opportunities that allow us to meet and connect with people across the business.

How are you working towards the future you want?

My ambition is to drive the use of artificial intelligence as a tool to better our planet, and fortunately, Capgemini offers all the support and mechanisms necessary to enable me to shape such a future.

I have been able to develop this ambition through my connections with Capgemini’s team focused on insights and data, which specializes in AI and provides the tools, resources, and support to develop my thinking in this field. Also, I am part of a great network of architects in the thought leadership program, where I have exposure to tools, processes, and opportunities to broaden my influence and expand my ideas.

At Capgemini, not only do we have the support and exposure to reach our specific ambitions, but there is also a huge focus on lifelong learning. Thanks to this, I have had the opportunity to gain numerous valuable certifications, including being a certified Scrum Master – level 3. I am also certified in SAFe, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Azure Cloud, AZ-900, AZ-500, and TOGAF. I am also certified as an IBM Pivotal Certified Cloud Developer.

Basically, the doors are wide open, and you just have to walk through. But that’s not all. At Capgemini, you get impetus to shape your future and develop through leadership, colleagues and the sheer variety of topics and projects.

What advice would you give to someone joining Capgemini?

The most important thing is to love what you do and of course to network, network, and – again – network. Luckily, there are more than enough opportunities for that.
