To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we asked our Head of Process and Platforms and advocate for women in technology, Anna Milon, some questions about her career in tech.
What route did you take to get into tech?
After completing my Business Management degree, I still felt the pull of tech so I did a Graduate Diploma in Web Development and went on to Software Development while living in Dublin. When I came back to Jersey I then did a variety of jobs, all with a tech angle, until I came back to be a Software Developer again in 2016.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Supporting the team to achieve and push themselves and to embrace technologies such as Robotic Process Automation and AI. I enjoy helping companies achieve their digital transformation goals and shape their future through efficiencies which will give them a competitive advantage.
What advice do you have for women looking to get into tech?
It’s a really exciting, creative industry to be involved with. There is constant change and a need to learn new things, so it’s always stimulating and keeps you on your toes. If you enjoy problem solving and constantly learning, then persevere and you will be rewarded with an inspiring career.
Which women in tech inspires you the most and why?
Sheryl Sandberg, because not only is she intelligent, accomplished and successful herself, but she supports other women to achieve in their careers through advice and advocacy of women in technology and leadership.
