Appco In Focus: Meet Sujit, Appco Australia’s Systems Development Manager
Updated: Dec 10, 2018
Meet Appco Australia’s Development Manager, Sujit James. He’s our technical expert who ensures our systems and processes are running smoothly, efficiently and securely, 365 days a year!
Another vital role Sujit plays is delivering new technologies to our clients’ businesses. And, as we’ve discovered he also likes to dance, eat, and talk (thankfully, not all at the same time).
In a nut-shell, describe your role at Appco Australia.
I oversee a team of developers to create and implement new technologies that streamline our clients’ direct marketing campaigns and improve our business operations. From creating web applications and automating tasks, to ensuring our systems operate smoothly, effectively and securely each day, these are just some of the tasks I do daily. I get to use my developer skills and code systems – it’s something I really enjoy and a skill I never want to lose.
What is your most memorable work moment?
For me, it was when we rolled out a number of web applications to support our operations team. The new platform has automated the manual-processing tasks for staff, saving them time and delivering essential information to our clients quicker.
Your role is pretty fast paced. What helps you focus and get the job done?
Appco Australia is a very fast-paced office environment and I like it! I’m an organised person, and like to use tools that help me to reach deadlines and stay on track. One of them is project-management platform, Asana.
How do you switch off after work?
Work-life balance is important to me, so I can switch off easily. I enjoy spending quality time at home with my family and friends after a busy day in the office.
Have you ever met anyone famous?
Yes, Aussie cricket legends Steve and Mark Waugh.
Have you got any secret talents?
I don’t know whether I can say it’s a talent, but I love to dance.
If you had to be locked in a building overnight, which would it be?
A supermarket where I can eat and drink as much as I want.
What's something about you that people would be surprised to learn?
At work, most people think that I’m quiet. But when I’m with my family and friends I like to talk a lot.
