"My passion for technology launched my career, but challenges, particularly as a woman in tech, were significant. Delivering projects under tight deadlines with new tech was daunting; extensive research and late nights were necessary. My then management's support, arranging late-hour transportation, eased the burden. At Acubed.IT, supported by a wonderful team and transparent culture, I have thrived. Valuable learning sessions fuelled my growth, emphasising grit, time management, and effective communication. Flexible work arrangements allowed seamless balance. Looking ahead, the tech industry must recognise women’s challenges and provide second chances post-career breaks. Development remains male-dominated, posing challenges for women standing their ground. To aspiring women in tech: keep learning and updating—you have got what it takes! You have got it, and you CAN do it! " Ruchi Sharma (QA Engineer).
