I’m Shalini here! I have been part of Continental Automotives India Pvt Ltd (Tech Centre, India) for the past 2+ years. Joined Continental as a Module Lead@ADAS for MFC4T0 (4th generation Multi-functional Camera Project for Toyota). My role as a lead was delegating tasks, tracking warnings, development, design & requirement handling, testing & debugging after each of the software releases. In recognition of my achievement as a Team Lead in executing the tasks successfully in a timely manner with the help of one of the most co-operating team members and coordinating across various locations, I was elevated as a Function Delivery Owner (FDO) within a short span of time, in fact within one year of joining the Continental family. I am currently working as a Comm-FDO for Radar projects, responsible for deriving low-level requirements to implement components – Communication and Normalization (better known as Function Control unit across mainstream projects).
Continuous learning is one of the keys to success and stay current. Hence I keep looking for opportunities to enhance my knowledge and got attracted by our interesting Software Academy trainings. The self-paced internal learning program is not only a wonderful concept but also an opportunity to know and learn things better which has opened doors for each individual to learn the Industry specific concepts at their comfort, enabling, ensuring & gaining all-round developmental skills. So far, through my access to the Software Academy, I have completed courses on Basics of ASPICE, AGILE, ASPICE vs AGILE, Kanban, Basics of Scrum, Cryptography, Secure Boot, Continuous Integration, JIRA, so on and so forth. I feel like as if “My journey has just begun!”, learning is a continuous process, it’s like an ocean, more we learn, more & more we want to know, the quest continues…
So far, my journey at Continental is filled with lots of enthusiasm and excitement. Continental has not just helped me in excelling just the career path, it has provided me a platform and opportunity to showcase my talent as an artist as well. Continental Music band – Saffron Dreams, has provided me a wonderful opportunity to showcase my Singing skills. I also had the opportunity to be part of the recent fitness drive at ADAS. ~90+ enthusiasts started the journey of “ADAS Pacers and Racers”!! I am one of proud achievers among the 14 participants who successfully completed 1000 kms Challenge in 3-month span between September & November 2018. I was bestowed with the Superstar Award for the month of September for meeting all the challenge criteria.
I feel honored being part of such a promising Organization which believes in the overall growth of its employees as a precursor for the company’s growth; providing an equal opportunity to all employees who are willing to learn, grow and progress. I wish Continental “All the success in all its future endeavors”. Through this, I would urge one and all to seize the opportunity for a better tomorrow!
