Why ZS?

I joined the firm through a recommendation from a friend of mine working here, and have never regretted doing so. Being in the software development group does tend to insulate me from the consulting folks, but as far as programming shops go, this is one of the best due to a strong focus on quality and individual growth.


My Favorite Project

I have been working on just one project since I have joined: Javelin Alignment Management System (JAMS), a client-facing tool in the Alignment practice area. Thus, all the things that I have learned about software development come from working on this project. Because it is targeted to a different type of user from most other ZS apps, there has been a lot of thought that has gone into the user experience. I have learned a lot from the process involved in designing the app, since that is not something that is one of my strengths.


My After-Hours Engagement/Activities

I spend a lot of my free time reading, and have a soft spot for good Sci-Fi/Fantasy books. (Current favorite: A Song of Ice and Fire)

ZS Values

It's very telling that errors are dealt with not by finger-pointing, but in a structured, result-oriented manner, and are always followed by retrospectives which take a deep look at what went wrong and how not to walk into similar situations in the future.
