Jessica Brazelton Kazembe

Consultant Developer

I am a software developer and consultant at ThoughtWorks, helping our clients build great software.

Over the years I have worked with many different technologies and I am always open to learn more. Being a minority I have a strong passion of trying to influence and encourage other minorities to pursue careers in technology.

One of the best parts of my role at ThoughtWorks is being able to work with people from various backgrounds and experiences. All of which have the same passion of building and creating great software.

The thing I love most about my work is

Because we are consultants, it allows us to work at different clients with different domains and different business needs. I love the idea that I have the opportunity to learn different things that can be on opposite ends of the spectrum. The thing that excites me about technology is the fact that it is always changing and I am always learning. At ThoughtWorks I have the opportunity to be inline with those changes.

The thing I love most about my work is

There are many things I love about my job. I love that there is space and encouragement to explore whatever technology that is interesting to you and be able to share that with others. I love that we participate in social and economical issues and use our technical expertise to solve problems in those areas. I love that we can attend training and conferences as they fit to our needs and interests. I love that we don't compromise our integrity to gain more wealth. I love that we don't always silo into one technology but evolve with the constant change.
