Resume: Before joining Shaw, Hema began her career as a consultant working for Household Finance Bank, in Chicago. She has also worked at EDS/SIGNET on the student loans system, and at McKesson Corporation on the accounts payable system.

Job Description: Hema joined Shaw in October of 2004 and she is currently a Lead Developer for the RETAIL team. She is constantly challenged by the evolving nature of the RETAIL product.

Perspective: Hema says: “I’ve always enjoyed the fact that at Shaw, the sky and beyond is the limit and KAIZEN is the way of work. I get the opportunity to strive towards it every day, encouraged by a very nurturing environment and great set of team players, so it is very easy to “lean in” and aim for the skies or rather the clouds!”
