What exactly are you doing at GFT? What does your job involve?
Abhijeet: I am a Project Developer at GFT USA. Among the variety of things I do in my role, I work with product SMEs and lead the team per clients requests to enable new features, upgrades and support. I also work on product integration with internal and external applications ensuring clients’ systems are integrated and operate smoothly.
With the excellent vision of leadership and management, I feel empowered to deal with Business and Technology. Previous to my current role of Project Developer in GFT USA, I have worked as a Project Lead and Senior Business Analyst’ in GFT Costa Rica.
Having business knowledge and being able to empathize with clients to address and resolve Process and Technical Issues are “must have” skills in my area of expertise.

Which of our GFT values – caring, committed, courageous, collaborative and creative – describe you best and why?
Abhijeet: Collaborative – You can walk fast alone but if you want to cover longer distances then walk with the Team. GFT Employees and GFT Clients are both important stakeholders and as such deserve equal respect.
How would you describe your experience in GFT USA?
Abhijeet: Excellent and unprecedented in my 20 year career. Learning, growing and discovering the land of opportunities (for both Individual and Team Work).
One of the things I like most about working at GFT is that it has an open culture that allows you to have direct exposure to the client and the ability to learn about technology and the client business. It is highly client centered and gives me the opportunity to be involved in some cutting edge technology as it is being explored for business use-cases.
What do you expect for the future?
Abhijeet: Growing along with GFT exponentially.
