Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you like about working at LG Ads.
Hi, I’m Sushmita and I’m a Technologist at LG Ads. I completed my Integrated Masters Degree from IIT-BHU in Varanasi India with a major in mathematics and computing. I enjoy working at LG Ads because there is always something new to explore as well as opportunities to learn and grow. I love being able to take on tasks and be the owner of projects. What amazes me the most is how quickly we, as a company, can turn around and deliver new products in the industry.

What do you do?
In terms of my role, it is very rewarding to create new programs using lines of code. It is very interesting and insightful to work with the product team and witness, first-hand, the code come to life. I love that I am able to do this everyday. As a kid, I was always fascinated with computers and software. Though I did not consciously decide to get into software engineering, I am really glad I ended up in this field. The software industry is constantly evolving. There are always new technologies coming up. I especially enjoy this because it keeps me on my toes and challenges me to keep up.

Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration in life is my dad. He taught me how to stay disciplined and go after what I want. He helped me dream big without any limits. He continues to inspire me everyday. I have so much more to learn from him!

What advice do you have for other women?
My message to all the girls out there trying to enter into a predominantly male-industry is to keep pushing the boundaries. Find a mentor who you can talk to and who can help you keep growing in your career. Work hard and prove yourself.
