We’re exceptionally proud of the brilliant and passionate women we have at Naimuri and have posted in the past to share their individual career journeys and the wide range of skills they bring to our team. You can take a look at our earlier posts from 2017 & 2019 to get to know some of our longer-standing Naimuri women, however, since then we have had some more remarkable and talented women join us, and as a celebration of International Women’s Day we’d like to showcase them and their diverse backgrounds and skill-sets.
Joy P – Business Operations
After finishing my History degree, and having decided that a job as a librarian or museum curator was not for me, I thought an administrative role would be a good fit. I started at Naimuri in 2017 and became part of their Business Operations team where our job as a team is to make sure that Naimuri is able to operate smoothly through administrative, maintenance and recruitment tasks. Over the past two and a half years I’ve learnt a lot about how a business operates – I’ve also had the opportunity to complete an Operations Management Diploma- and I’m still learning new things every day.
Lisa S – Automation Test Analyst
Maths and puzzles have always intrigued me, I set off in Mechanical Engineering but soon swapped to Integrated Engineering which was far more computer based (not before I learnt to weld though). My first few IT roles were in website creation, however the final testing somehow always landed on my desk but I just saw it as part of the website creation loop. Followed by a job in which I ended up testing SMS engines which routed millions of messages a day round the world and back into the UK, I realised I enjoyed testing far more than HTML/CSS and that testing was a job in itself. I love the thrill of the chase for bugs. A few years ago I started using automation for testing, constantly evolving technologies makes it a perpetual puzzle to find ways to both test and then automate the tests. Cloud infrastructure is my current favourite area for testing and security testing my ‘I want to learn more’. Both are particularly challenging to automate but that is what makes it so interesting.
Rachel M – Agile Project Manager
My first encounter into the world of IT was through my degree after changing direction from Forensic Science to Computer Forensics. During my degree, I was fortunate enough to undertake a placement that introduced me to working in a software development team and encountering the full software development lifecycle. After this, I joined the IT industry as a Software Engineer. Through the last 7 years of my career I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing teams in different locations within the UK, been a STEM Ambassador and explored many different roles in a development team. I’ve been involved in business analysis, developing, testing, deployment, information assurance, and subsequently expanded into Agile project management. I’m a firm believer in continuously improving yourself and keen to support people in their own career.
At Naimuri, we’re firm believers that our people are what make us great and so we seize the opportunity to celebrate them. This International Women’s Day let’s commend women’s achievements, forge positive visibility of women and raise the profile of women, and particularly women in STEM, everywhere.
Naimuri provides a range of innovative technology and consultancy services in highly secure environments to both central government and industry. We are committed to building and nurturing a diverse and inclusive environment to support our outstanding females and we’re always on the look-out for talented women.
