I have been busy setting up HUB’s India office; enabling HUB to scale and setting up a world class centre of excellence. This has ranged from setting up all the policies, hiring, employees benefit and helping with HUB’s technology build. I have particularly enjoyed infusing the entrepreneurial mindset & great energy into our India office. Although, it has been a challenging task, I have loved getting people with different culture, thinking and domain knowledge under one roof and contributing to HUBs vision for financial services.
I am working with leadership & different stakeholders in HUB to shape up our product vision, roadmap and make it work for our customers. I am also part of architecture group who make decisions around technologies, working on operating model with product & professional services. Working as one team with all leaders and stakeholders to deliver a commercial viable products & value to our customers in timebound manner which results into a great value proposition for HUB and its customers.
Every day is full of new challenges, requiring you to constantly think differently and challenge yourself. I start my day with looking into articles & blogs to better understand how capital markets are shaping up & how technologies are helping those transformations. I then work with the cross-location leadership team, to discuss hiring, how policies are shaping up and what new challenges everybody is facing, to get things done.
I usually have a coffee catch up with different members of the team, before meeting to understand any challenges they are facing and help them unblock those. After lunch generally I get back to back meetings on different subjects such as technology & architecture, product & business strategy. Setting up 1-1s across locations to ensure teams are operating as ‘one HUB’. In the late afternoon, I work on any outstanding tasks and planning for the next day.
HUB is solving a very complex set of problems across financial services. Everyday presents an opportunity and a new challenge. These problems require creativity and an innovative approach which enables us to leverage the latest technologies to execute them.
We are building a great team with the right skill sets, deep knowledge about the challenges the industry face and who are great to work with. I also love the idea of solving challenges in the post trade industry and reinventing the operating model. As a technologist, particularly using the latest technology to solve business problems in an efficient and scalable way.
