We spoke to Meggie, Senior DevOps Engineer at KPMG about her experience within the business as a woman in tech.
The other main thing that appealed to Meggie about KPMG, and this programme in particular, was the scope to get involved in so many different things. You can experience different teams, work on a range of projects and, if you do well, you can progress quickly.
“I’ve been really impressed with the culture. In my team, there’s a lot of give and take. There is a lot of flexibility in both the working hours and being able to work from home.”
In terms of what she does day-to-day, Meggie builds work and that’s where you get to be creative. You can come up with ideas and new tools, and as long as they’re relevant, your team will get behind you so that you can give it a go.
Right now, she is working on our new KPMG careers portal which is all about creating a better and clearer candidate experience. We want to help people to understand our different roles and what it means to be part of the firm.
Meggie, loves the culture in her team and is learning so much. KPMG has a very collaborative way of working and everyone is always happy to help you. The progression is incremental, so she now owns some smaller projects and gets to contribute to some larger projects too.
In terms of technology, she had been focusing on Microsoft Azure and is attending their conference in Orlando which Meggie has been really excited about. And not just because of the location, but because of what she’ll see and learn. A year ago, Meggie never have thought she’d be saying that!
