Capgemini's Jennifer Day says variety keeps her work interesting

 January 26, 2020

Women working at Capgemini UK enjoy challenging and rewarding job positions. For example, Jennifer Day is a Software Engineer Lead in the Microsoft team, and she relishes the opportunities on offer.

Jennifer has been writing code as a job for more than two decades – and before becoming a professional, she enjoyed coding as a hobby, starting with Basic and VB6.0 before progressing to working with .NET, mainly working with SharePoint. Now, she is working with technologies like Dynamics 365, Azure, PowerApps and Flow as well as studying for an MSc in Software Engineering.

Choosing to stay at Capgemini longterm

"I like the variety of clients and projects that we work with, the mix of different people that I get to meet and the different technologies that we get to use. Working in different places keeps it interesting too. There are opportunities to move around, or to work with different areas; so I’m happy to carry on working here and seeing where it takes me," says Jennifer.

Asked what she enjoys most about consulting, Jennifer adds "Much like my reasons for staying at Capgemini, each client is different – I like that variety, I like meeting and talking to new people and I also like trying to solve a puzzle. Working away, and exploring the different places that we stay in is also something I enjoy doing – there’s never a dull day."

Enjoying an active lifestyle outside of work

Jennifer enjoys active hobbies outside of her working hours, and is also studying hard to further develop her skills.

"Outside of work, I like to do triathlons, marathons and cycling – I love just being out and about, and may not be fast, but just enjoy keeping active. I am also studying for an OU MSc, which takes up some time, but is going well," Jennifer comments. "I have a microlight pilots licence too, although don’t have much time at the moment to fly, although will look to get back to that once the MSc has finished."
