Why did you join the FLEXCUBE team?
Banking is a subject that I’m passionate about—I’d always dreamed of working in the banking domain. We all know that financial services are a fundamental part of any economic system. Banking, in particular, plays an important function in society and holds great significance across the globe. When I got the opportunity to work in an organization focused primarily on banking, I grabbed it without second thoughts. I was thrilled to work in the FLEXCUBE team, one of the top core banking solutions worldwide. It was exciting to work on a product that runs some of the world’s largest banks. I knew it required out-of-the-box thinking and creativity, and I was willing to rise up to the challenge.
How’s a day in the life of a Senior Principal Software Developer in your team?
The role itself is highly enjoyable if you like taking on a challenge. It requires multi-tasking, collaborating with different members, thinking on your feet, and designing solutions that work for our customers. I’m also required to mentor junior members and help them pick up new skills and grow. This role allows me to hone my leadership skills, while supporting and contributing to the success of my team. I look forward to getting to work each day, simply because I know I’ll have a new challenge to solve. I enjoy working on new technologies where I can explore and learn new things on my own. I believe this is the perfect place to grow both professionally and personally.
Tell us more about the meaningful work that you do.
Currently, I’m working on cloud technologies, which is, again, challenging, but I’m getting the opportunity to learn many things. Cloud deployments are now catching on in the banking industry; I’m very proud to work on projects that can ease this transition for our customers. With cloud technologies, our customers can gain the benefits of faster time-to-market and reduce costs. The fact that my work affects a large section of the banking industry gives me great satisfaction.
How’s the culture and work environment in your team?
Oracle’s culture has impressed me since day one. There’s a lot of room for individual growth and learning. I like the fact that, at Oracle, we don’t just have a generic promotional path. There’s a diverse career landscape; you have the opportunity to work in a variety of roles, examine different technologies, and build amazing products that transform the banking business. I must also mention that management is very interested in the growth of its employees—they provide due credit and recognition for a job well done!
What career opportunities are available in your team?
We have UI and Kubernetes openings in our team. This is an exciting time for us. We’re building new cloud-based solutions and designing highly scalable cloud services. This will open up tremendous opportunities for techies, as we’re leveraging a widely used technology stack of cloud-based products in our architecture.
