Introducing our newest Waddler, Minal, the latest recruit to Waddle's ever-expanding delivery team. Minal is an experienced engineer who is excited to develop 'The Waddle Way' with our ultra-lean processes and continuous delivery. Minal has an adventurous and curious spirit, and is equally intrigued by nature and the world around her, as she is by the fellow humans she shares it with.
A big welcome to the team! How has life in the Waddle house been so far?
Life has been pretty good at Waddle so far! It has been a good experience exploring quite a different work environment.
Who is Minal Bagade? Do you have any hobbies? Secret talents?
I am an adventure hunter, absolutely love trying out new adventures and exploring new places to travel. Diving and snorkelling are my latest muse. A passionate lover of nature, my camera is my constant companion on any spare day.
I am a curious person who loves to study human behaviour. Being a master practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Emotional Intelligence and Hypnotherapy in my time after IT work, I serve people by coaching them on the obstacles in their lives through my initiative with these techniques. Love to listen to the beautiful stories everyone is living and always in for a great conversation!
Tell us a bit about what brings you to Waddle. What were you doing before you got here?
Expanding my horizon with lean processes and continuous delivery is what has intrigued me. Having worked on various domains in my whole career, finance is another fantastic realm I am enjoying.
Prior to this I was working as an Engagement Manager for projects of BDM for NSW and VIC leading a cross-functional team across the two states.
What is your first impression of Waddle? The platform? The team?
Agile taken to an extreme, which helps us to deliver the products really quickly to our customers and clients. The platform is well standardised with great usage of latest technology stacks.
The team believes in growing and up-scaling in skills and experiences from continuous feedback. This makes it durable in the long run. The team is extremely collaborative and likes to experiment.
What are you hoping to achieve here with us?
I am hoping to scale up in knowledge, while growing the Waddle services/platform.
