This is a sponsored submission from Bank of America Merrill Lynch by Pranav Malhotra

Hello,

My name is Pranav Malhotra and I have just graduated from Imperial College and have joined Bank of America Merrill Lynch as a Technology Analyst. This year, Bank of America Merrill Lynch is working with DoCSoc to invite you to a host of exciting events that we have lined up. Come and meet recent graduates like myself as well as experienced developers, architects and team leads at the various events that we are holding on campus as well as at our offices.

I would like to take this opportunity to briefly share some of my own experiences as an intern and now as a graduate. I find working at Bank of America Merrill Lynch to be an incredibly rewarding experience because I am always made to feel like a quintessential member of the team. My opinions and insights are valued and I am constantly encouraged to question processes. Graduates also have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from some of the best developers in the industry.

At the bank, there is a very large focus on personal development. Last week, we had a presentation by Trisha Gee, a developer advocate at JetBrains. She provided great insight into how to perform an effective code review. As a technologist, I value the opportunity to hone my own skills. I particularly enjoy the nature of the work. There is great emphasis placed on the performance and robustness of code that is released to production environment. In the three months that I have been an analyst, I have learnt so much about the Java Virtual Machine and am now confident in using a wide array of design patterns to solve complex problems.

  1. DoCSoc Sponsor’s Exhibition: 12 Oct 2017 14:00 - 18:00hrs
