At Veritas, we take pride in promoting those among the organization with unique ideas and the willingness to voice them, and Veritas Software Engineer and Scrum Master, Xiaoming Yan, is a strong example of this standard.
As a part of Veritas’ Future Women in Leadership program, Xiaoming was especially selected by Veritas leadership to represent the company’s women engineers – a decision driven by her excellence in scrum management on the NetBackup team and compelling ideas for integrating machine learning in Veritas solutions.
I invite you to read highlights from my interview with Xiaoming to learn more about her work at Veritas and experience as a member of #TeamVtas. And reach out to her here in the VOX Developers’ Community, @XiaomingYan!
Please share some details on your background with Veritas.
I joined Veritas in August of 2015, and was inspired by the company’s openness to innovative ideas and professional growth among employees. Within my first year at the company, I was invited to take on Scrum Master responsibilities in support of NetBackup – an honor at a company known for thoughtful operationalizing among its solutions teams.
What inspired you to seek a career in computer science?
I had not considered a career in technology until I was at university. In an educational environment, I was able to see the possibilities in technological innovation, and knew I wanted to be a part of it. Now, I cannot imagine my life without the everyday intrigue of computer science!
The future at Veritas is bright – how would you like to be a part of Veritas’ future?
I am particularly delighted by the progress we are witnessing in machine learning and want to play a role in Veritas’ integration of machine learning in its solutions.
Machine learning offers undeniably impressive opportunities to improve the experience of our customers – identifying their preferred methods of interaction and patterns among their varying solutions use cases; really, the list of possibilities is only growing, and I am grateful to be able to support this innovation at Veritas as a member of #TeamVtas.
