My company and my job

I’m a Business Analysis for the Connexis Supply Chain platform, an application by BNP Paribas to improve the Supply Chain financial efficiency for buyers and suppliers. Our job is two-fold; we ensure clients have access to a functionally sound platform and that internal bank operations are facilitated by our integrated application. We’re always looking for ways to improve, and we plan projects from start to end, from exploring new possibilities with the product team to discussing with the developers and testers to certify that we have a quality product for release.

How I got my job

The interview process was tough but fair. The interviewers gave honest feedback, and I got to learn a lot more about my team and my role as I went through the interview rounds. Thinking back, I felt that the open communication between us gave the assurance that I would be a good fit for the team.

The highs and lows 

I can honestly say that there has never been boring day. It’s amazing to see everything come together, from mere ideas to a concrete product. Of course, this also means that I’m always worrying if something will go wrong! Ensuring that we have analysed the issue from all perspectives and have catered to the needs of every user is just one challenge I face every day.   

My happiest moment at work

I’ll forever remember the moment the first product I worked on went live. The anxiety and excitement of it all made me unable to sleep the night previous! Despite a few hiccups, the release went smoothly. So much of our work went into this; I felt a little empty for a few days afterwards. Luckily, a new project came along before long and now I’m looking forward to starting the whole process again!
