Hello, hello 👋
Let’s start with proper greetings. Welcome everyone who has joined and supported Effi within the last 2 years. This year, we want to boost our communication with you and let you get to know the stars that make up our awesome team.
From Sri Lanka to Australia, the Effi team is spread all over the world. We have amazing individuals who have been putting all of their effort and experience into building Effi. There is no way our house could stand without these warriors.
Meet Sharmila Payal, our remarkable software engineer who has brought her incredible energy and can-do attitude since day one.
Before officially joining the Effi team in Sydney, Sharmila was already a part of the family for a long time, helping us with big projects along the way.
Here’s what that means to her:
💬 Can you tell us a bit about your role?
I joined Effi as a software engineer. My responsibility is to ensure the smooth functioning of our technical operations.
💬 What made you want to join this team?
Effi’s culture and ambition got my attention as they are well aligned with my own. When a software engineering position at Effi opened up, I leapt at the opportunity as they are a company with so much to learn from.
💬 A memory from the last couple of weeks.
I do have a specific moment to highlight. I moved to Sydney a few weeks ago and met the Effi team in person for the first time. That was genuinely exciting, as I have only worked remotely with them. Everyone is supportive, friendly and has such positive energy.
At first, I thought the process of moving to a new country would be quite challenging. Now I realised there is a great sense of adventure and discovery to be found in that. It is not as difficult as I imagined it would be.
💬 How do you think Effi changed as it grew?
Effi has reached some impressive checkpoints. When I first learned about Effi, the company had entered the market as a high-tech platform to effectively improve brokers’ processes and workflows. In the past two years, more people have discovered the possibilities of how much Effi can reach and do. As more people joined the team, we now have the resources to push things further and deliver better. Our focus is on making the platform quick and intuitive for our users.
💬 What keeps you motivated to continue growing?
I always want to learn more and explore new things. Effi gives me that space to push myself as far as I can go. Every day opens up a whole new challenge and gives me the chance to learn new technical skills. That’s definitely what drives me.
💬 Effi Technologies. Efficient or not?
Without a second thought, Efficient. Working with Effi allows me to see how inefficiencies can become a roadblock affecting broker businesses. Making everything smarter and faster is necessary. Effi is a really good platform for that. The progress we are making in the market explains it very well.
If you are as excited about Effi’s journey as we are, it’s time to join Effi today.
