How I got into tech
After completing my undergraduate degree in Humanities, I landed my first graduate role in an IT company. Whilst working there, I discovered my interest in programming and that's when I decided to pursue a career in software development. This career change has been greatly rewarding and I am very happy to have taken this step.
I am a nurse and founder of Rubi Health, that uses advanced tech for optimized user experience. When I became pregnant, I had anxiety and the long search for a therapist added more stress. I didn't know where to go, what to look for and I felt lonely. Rubi Health was born to help mothers like myself to solve problems of anxiety and depression during & after pregnancy.
I never planned to go into tech. I studied English literature and assumed I would be a teacher. The ability to think, reason and dissect is the reason why I ended up in IT. I love solving problems and thinking outside of the box. My background gives me an advantage over “techies”. After 20 years, I’m still learning new tech but my non-techie skills make me successful.
Having an online marketing background, I found myself in tech discussions where I didn't have much to contribute. I wanted to understand what needs to happen behind the scenes and obtain a realistic idea of the scope and timings. Being part of a tech team now, my learning curve is rising every day. I enjoy the challenge as well as the pragmatism that comes with tech.
During my career as a classical musician, I also worked in IT and I found it stimulating. I had opportunities to develop further so I changed direction. I took every chance to learn new skills and build knowledge on tech. Creative thinking, leadership and presenting were some of the skills from my music career that were applicable to my new career in tech.
