What are your job’s most challenging and most cheering elements? What do you think is the most exciting part of being a woman in the tech industry? 

The most challenging and, at the same time, the most cheering element of my job role are People. When we talk about clients, it is a cheering moment when they come with unique challenges specific to their requirements.

We, Women, are well known for multi-tasking, and being in the tech industry with this quality makes us shine better. This industry has allowed me to meet with new people, and it has also allowed me to collaborate with internal and external stakeholders and a lot of human interfaces.

How do you balance work and life? 

I believe females are blessed with unique genes that bring balance in everything we do with our charm, be it either work or life, and I do the same. And I have been blessed with the best team to work with, where we all take responsibility equally, making work more fun and easy-going at the same time. And this brings more positivity into life.

Tell us more about your hobbies

I love swimming, reading books, and binge-watching OTT series. The city where I live has the best beaches in the world. Apart from these, I also enjoy driving, and it’s more like a therapy thing to clear my mind.


Interesting facts about you.

I love shopping, and I am a die-hard K-drama fan. I hate Lizards. And I can write in both straight and cursive fonts.

What is your favorite place in the world? Why?

My favorite place is my home with my family in India. Apart from home, I love Dubai. Dubai is my home away from home, and this city’s vibe and warmth are more than I could have ever asked for. I have so many places on my bucket list I would like to visit, like Iceland to see the Northern lights, Italy and Bali in the future.

What advice can you give to women considering a career in the telematics sector? What do you wish you had known? 

The telematics industry is mainly perceived as the men‘s sector, as it has its fair share of technicalities and work requiring physical and mental proficiency. But once you enter this world, you understand what you were missing. I would like to advise any woman considering a career in the telematics sector to come with an open mind – every job has its own share of challenges, but you get to experience the scope of futuristic technologies and how they can be beneficial for everyone around.

I would like to take this opportunity to highlight that being a part of Ruptela has given me a chance to stand equally. This place never demanded any extra effort from me to prove my efficiency because of my gender.
