Pushing boundaries to create added value for Egen clients
Hima was one of the first employees at the Egen India Development Center.
Soon after Hima Sai graduated from university with a bachelor’s degree in computer science in 2018, she was recruited as one of the first employees of the new India Development Center for Egen.
Hima was excited about the opportunity to dive right into projects with the diverse set of Egen clients across industries, drawing on her skills with machine learning and artificial intelligence.
“Even as a new campus recruit, I had the opportunity right away to work with a leading company like Williams Sonoma,” Hima said. “I was part of the team that created a conversational chatbot to help its customers find the perfect gifts, and I got to work on it all the way through to production.”
Hima has also worked on projects for health care clients, including creating custom machine learning models to extract data from documents, and she contributed to technology that supported Covid-19 vaccination appointments for U.S. state governments.
I love that I get to work on projects that are helpful to so many people in their everyday lives.”
Hima started as an associate machine learning engineer and was promoted several times within her first few years with the company. She is now a senior principal engineer, where her responsibilities include leading project teams through the end-to-end process of working with a client.
The Egen company values of ‘client obsessed’ and ‘pushing boundaries’ resonate most with Hima.
“Whenever we work with clients, we dig deep to know what really helps them. We are always looking for ways to create added value in our work together,” she said. “This involves pushing our boundaries as a team, so we are continually learning and finding ways to translate our skills to new ideas that drive value for our clients.”
In addition to leading project teams, Hima brings her love of singing and dancing to being part of the Spring Band at the Egen office in Hyderabad, India. She participates in friendly foosball competitions with her colleagues, and volunteers during community engagement activities. She was part of the Egen team that collaborated with the Akshaya Patra Foundation to plant trees at a school in Hyderabad, contributing to a greener, more sustainable future.
