When I think about my eight-plus years with Acuvate, it reminds me of the quote by Booker T. Washington – “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” Growth and success are the outcomes of the challenges we face. And at Acuvate, we are allowed to take up challenges that set us up to succeed in our careers. I have achieved many milestones, whether professional growth, emerging technologies, or exposure to cross-cultural and domain experiences. In my journey, Acuvate has become my friend and mentor. And that’s what makes it one of the best places to work.
I joined Acuvate in 2013 as a SharePoint Developer and was deployed on a project with one of the leading Indian airlines right from the beginning. Within three years, I was heading the SharePoint solution team. In the same year, I got the opportunity to change my focus to emerging AI technologies and thus began my Acuvate Chatbot development journey. Over the years, Acuvate turned into a Chabot expert in the industry and me into the Product Leader for this bot core solution. Later, I also got the opportunity to shift my focus from technical to functional responsibilities completely. I even got the chance to relocate to the UK, looking into key customers and managing presales activities.
From developing the chatbot technology to advising new customers on how it could assist them – Acuvate provided the liberty to juggle between two different practices. Looking at the traditional way of rising the ladder, I’m happy that I got the chance to define my career growth differently. The support and flexibility to venture out and master technical areas and become a functional expert have shaped me into the professional I am today.
