We have a strong Diversity & Inclusion culture here

‘During the 11th year of my Software Engineering career working in Healthcare domain, I took the most difficult decision in my life – to apply abroad for Software Engineer roles. My husband motivated me to do so, while I was thinking of switching jobs.

On February 2019, we moved to Ireland with our child, and I started my role as a Senior Software Developer at Jaguar Land Rover. This was a huge transition, with everything being so new – but we settled well.

One of the best things working here in Jaguar Land Rover,  Shannon is that we are a relatively small and diverse group of people – from so many diverse cultures and countries. You can be part of a project team of six people from five continents – it’s amazing. I feel the company provides us with a very non – hierarchical organization structure – with a culture that has made me become a more confident person. Everyone has a voice here, I truly feel.

I am part of the Onboard Software Development Team. I currently work for Vehicle Analytics project. We have the opportunity to work on Jaguar Land Rover’s next generation vehicle software platform development. It’s very satisfying to see the code we develop gets deployed onto our premium vehicles – it’s always a proud moment for me.

We have a strong Diversity & Inclusion culture here. This year I joined as a committee member in She++ community – which is  Shannon’s in-house community that supports women in Jaguar Land Rover, Shannon. She++ community has women in Shannon and their allies as members. As part of She++ community activities, I was fortunate enough to participate as a panelist in a She++ panel discussion and get involved in various other programmes organized by She++ community. She++ community activities really resonates with my passion to contribute back to the community – especially to inspire girls to consider a career in technology and engineering.

One final thing that has impressed me about the company culture is the support from the business and how valued it makes you feel. The past two years have been difficult for everyone with the pandemic – but our managers have always made sure our work life balance and wellbeing have been looked after.’
