IT STARTED WITH ISHU According to Ishu, “My first job was in design but aer a couple years I felt restless. So, I took a chance and accepted a job in the Interactive Division at SapientNitro.” It was at SapientNitro where she discovered her career path. “It was refreshing to work at a company that saw a future for interactive developers. There were nearly 300 of us and a career ladder to climb. Plus, I was impressed by the breakthrough work that my managers were doing. I wanted to follow in their footsteps.”

Her manager tasked her with mastering Javascript and JQuery by her first year at SapientNitro – a tall order since she had never worked in either of these areas before. But within one year, Ishu was made the sole site developer on a large corporate client. “I was able to handle the job because of the top-notch technical training and managerial mentoring I received. I might be a junior but, I’ve become a player on the cutting-edge, creating a new type of story-telling for an always on world.” Then Came Anshu “I have to admit, I was jealous of the work my sister was doing at SapientNitro,” said Anshu. “I felt like I was toiling away in my design job doing the same thing over and over while she was part of a culture of game-changing people and expanding her career at SapientNitro. Plus, she kept bragging about all the fun events at SapientNitro.” Ishu, on the other hand, never encouraged Anshu to join her at any of her other jobs. But SapientNitro was different. “Being just like me – hungry to learn and tackle new challenges – I knew my sister would thrive here.” One year aer arriving, Ishu was reunited with her sister at SapientNitro in the Interactive Team.

Work Hard Play Hard It’s true they work hard but both Ishu and Anshu are astonished by how much they have grown at SapientNitro.

The experience has massively bolstered my self-confidence and belief in myself.” “The extensive career-building opportunities at SapientNitro are preparing me for the future,” said Anshu. “We have “learning sessions” every 15 days on various industry topics. As a result, I’m positioned to shi into new areas, like mobile, when the opportunity arises.”

“I still marvel at the company’s open culture. My senior managers sit right alongside of me and work like I’m working… As a result, I feel free to propose new ideas because I know I’ll be taken seriously.” - Anshu
