Pooja Gulabani is a Python developer and a project lead in Fixed Income Currencies & Commodities Technology at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. She lives in North Greenwich, South East London.

I love that technology has brought the world closer. When I first left India it was quite easy to miss my family, but now I have multiple ways of easily keeping in touch with them via video calls and photos. Technology is so creative, and I have been able to come up with many ideas to improve and automate tasks and make my day-to-day work easier.

My day typically starts at 7am, when I put on some music and get ready for work. I don’t have to wear a suit to work, which is great, so I pick whatever is ironed in my wardrobe that is suitable. I grab a skinny latte and breakfast on the way to work. I usually read on my commute, or catch-up with family and friends via social media. I get the tube and am normally in the St Paul’s office by 9.30am. I work in an open plan space and my business partners are located in NYC, Chicago, London and Hyderabad.

‘Git Out’: CGCU Stunned as DoCSoc Votes to Leave the Union
Imperial DoCSoc,  1 April 2017


Imperial Computing Society has voted to LEAVE the City and Guilds College Union after a historic AGM in which members rejected the advice of committee leaders and instead took a plunge into the unknown.

The decision in favour of the exit, coined ‘Git Out’ in reference to the popular version control system, represents the biggest shock to the Union since the City and Guilds College merged with Imperial College in 1910. The result comes after months of debate and controversy in to the future of the society.

In the wake of the vote, the JMC Departmental Representative has pledged to hold an independence referendum “at the earliest opportunity”. Rachel Lee claimed it would be “democratically unacceptable” for JMC to be taken out of the Union against its own will, given that JMC and EIE students voted overwhelmingly to remain. In an earlier statement, she claimed that a vote to secede from DoCSoc could result in a ‘Department of JMC’ and subsequent ‘JMCSoc’ which could formally attempt to reenter CGCU.
