Meet the Team: Viji Manoharan, Junior Implementation Engineer

At BTM Global, we believe our work is about more than just technology. It’s about our people and our relationships with clients and colleagues. We hope this “Meet the Team” series gives you a better understanding of the personalities and passions that make up BTM Global!

As a Junior Implementation Engineer, Viji Manoharan works with many BTM teams to deliver the best solutions for our diverse Oracle Retail clients. Whether creating the right solution in the office or completing a beautiful DIY project at home, Viji thrives on collaboration, exploration and serving others!

What are your responsibilities at BTM Global?
As a Junior Implementation Engineer, I am responsible for analyzing software requirements to ensure the integration and implementation solution meets our client’s business needs. I contribute to technical design procedures, programming and documentation, and I work closely with the Technical Lead, Functional Team Members, our Vietnam team and the QC Team.

Why did you decide to join the BTM team?
I had been looking to work at a place where I could be mentored by senior coworkers who have more experience and retail knowledge. BTM is the perfect place for that! There are a lot of great opportunities for me to learn more about the front-end of retail applications with the help of the Functional Team.

To be honest, BTM is the best place because it provides everything I need for my career growth: Mentorship and guidance, gaining knowledge and building my skills, the ability to work directly with clients, be involved in decision making, etc. It was important for me to work for a company that encourages innovation and doesn’t get tied up in red tape; I have opportunities to take ownership of my work and exercise more autonomy. Those are a few of the reasons I joined this wonderful team!

What excites you about your work?
Every day, I see a lot of energy in the office. People are collaborating with each other at different workstations, and my co-workers are busy and upbeat. I really like that people at every level can contribute ideas. I love working with my Tech team and Functional team to find new ideas to fulfill clients’ needs.

Work-life balance at BTM is another reason I enjoy working here, and the relationship between employees and the leadership team is great. I also have the chance to work on different projects with different clients. This is one of the best ways to improve myself and take my career to the next level.

You work mainly with Oracle Retail clients. What keeps you interested in that space?
I have a lot of knowledge about SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) and as a retail customer, I’m always curious about the retail world. Every retailer has different needs and requirements, so the solution possibilities are endless. There’s always something new to learn and it’s never the same thing every day, so that’s what keeps me interested in retail technology.

What do you wish others knew about BTM?
BTM is always focused on adopting new solutions for its clients and ways to improve. There’s a huge emphasis on clear communication with each other and with our clients, and documenting everything.

Giving back and volunteering is a significant part of BTM’S values. Our work with Kids Promise is one of the main reasons I’m proud of BTM, and I would love to contribute my time to that organization.

Tell us about your life outside of work.
I am a happy mom of two kids, and spending time with them is my favorite thing. I love to dance and decorate my home, including DIY projects that have taken me to a whole new level of interior design! I also love researching and learning new things, and traveling and exploring.

My mantra for everything is: Do What You Love, Love What You Do.
