During the week of International Womens’ Day, we shine a spotlight on the women thought leaders across Global Decision Analytics. 

In this Every Woman Forum, Tech Hub article, Angela Beteta Quesada, Principal DevOps Engineer, Global Decision Analytics, discusses the importance of relatable role models for women in the tech industry and how making the right choices in where and how you work can open up a wealth of different people to learn from.

“As a role model I think I am relatable; I like to take risks and opportunities that are a challenge to me — and that I think are going to be good fun. That is how my whole career has developed. I also work well with people and have good communication skills — when I was a junior Java engineer, my mantra was ‘leave it with me’. I think my managers saw that they could throw things at me and have confidence that there was going to be a good result, which is a mindset I still have.”
