Like many of life’s most fascinating careers, Sid’s came about by serendipitous accident.
Originally a software engineer, his career began in the mid 90s writing code for the French bank, Credit Lyonnais.
But during a recruitment process for another job in development, an intuitive interviewer identified a spark in Sid well-suited to sales and asked if it was a path he’d ever consider.
After some reluctance, he test trialed the suggestion, believing it would be a short lived experiment, but was proved pleasantly surprised — and a couple of decades on he is now MuleSoft’s Director of Sales (Financial Services) for South East Asia.
While Sid didn’t stick with code for long, he believes the thrill of building something from scratch — something that actually works and never existed before you created it — has stayed with him across three start-ups and a number of large organisations, including his leadership role today.
