Name: Nidhi K.
Job Title: Senior Manager, Software Engineering, Business Technology
While pursuing my MBA at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, the career department was assisting me in my job search, and Discover came up as the top company to work for based on my criteria. Long story short, I ended up interviewing and very quickly accepting a position at Discover.
In my current role as Senior Manager I manage a number of teams in Business Technology (BT) in the Mobile app area. Discover’s Mobile app has won many industry awards, and has an increasing user base. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to download and check out the latest features the app offers.
Prior to this I was managing several teams in Card BT in areas of eWallets (mobile wallets such as Apple Pay) and eCommerce (alliances between Discover and companies such as PayPal).
Discover provides many career opportunities and supports long term career growth. Since joining Discover more than 6 years ago, I took on roles with increasing responsibility, through which I am able to discover my personal strengths and expand my skills. I’m fortunate that my colleagues across the organization recognize my work, and trust me with responsibilities that are both immensely challenging and rewarding. I constantly focus on exploring ways I can contribute to the company’s success, and discovering possibilities for the organization’s and my continued growth.
Discover’s culture is diverse, collaborative and innovative. The company is creating an inclusive work environment by investing in Employee Resource Groups, Volunteer activities and various initiatives that promote diversity. In addition, the company offers several employee benefits, such as tuition reimbursement, generous PTO, flexible work arrangements, and talent development programs. All of these attributes make Discover a truly unique workplace, and I’m not surprised that Discover consistently ranks as one of the best companies to work for!
