I joined SIERRA as a fresher and worked for 3 years. I have no doubt in saying that the foundation of my IT career was laid at SIERRA. I met some of the best people who helped me understand the real workings of the IT world. SIERRA provided me with the opportunity to work with a team of intelligent professionals and also to work in all areas of software development including designing, coding (front-end and back-end), testing and deployment. I doubt any fresher would get an opportunity like this in any other big software company. I also got my first onsite opportunity in Malaysia for implementation & UAT. That was a great experience. To be working and be a part of SIERRA was such a wonderful, life-changing experience. I made lifelong friendships with some of my colleagues at SIERRA. I’m so happy and grateful for this opportunity.
I am Suganya Prabhu. I worked in SIERRA for about 5 years early in my career. The work culture and environment was a great learning experience. SIERRA to me was like a family more than an office. It will remain a cherishing memory in my life.
I have made a career switch and now I inspire people as a teacher.
I started my baby steps of my career in SIERRA Private Limited and it was a memorable time from 2008 to 2012. It was a place for learning and growth, shaped me as a software professional. SIERRA has an employee-friendly environment, with freedom and responsibility it helps employees deliver quality work to its client. I am grateful to SIERRA-tians who contributed to my career journey.
I started my career at SIERRA and spent more than 3 years from 2006 to 2009.
I was involved in Research & Development for a Biometric project which helped me learn a lot of things in SIERRA.
My sincere thanks to Mr. Giridhar and Mr. Madhan Kumar who helped me a lot and for giving me enough time to make it an R&D success, finally we were able to connect and play all the devices (Digital camera, Finger Print scanner and Signature capture pad). That learning experience is helping me a lot in my career.
Thanks to everyone.
