Nitin Garg, a lead technical consultant on our award-winning Commerce team is a great example of how supportive Perficient is when pursuing career growth opportunities. Read his insights below to learn more about him, his role, and how Perficient supported his career growth as he moved to the United States.
What is your role? Describe a typical day in the life.
As a lead technical consultant, I lead technical implementation and design from the onshore side. A day in this position is a combination of a lot of things, such as meetings to understand business requirements and creating functional design documents. I also work closely with offshore Nagpur development to provide required support in technical implementation by solving open queries or sometimes creating proof of concepts to guide how the implementation will work.
My role also involves creating visual workflows and presenting them to clients to make sure business requirements cover nearly all use cases and to identify potential challenges. This allows us to create alternative paths or solutions to overcome roadblocks.
Other miscellaneous activities I do are code reviews, creating and maintaining updates of implementation design documents, writing Perficient blogs, and helping improve internal team processes whenever possible.
What are the benefits of this role at Perficient?
I love that my role is versatile and challenging. I get the opportunity to learn and grow while simultaneously using my skills to problem solve and bring clients’ visions to life. Everyone I’ve worked with has taught me something new – both clients and colleagues. With the support of my team, I also have the ability to try new roles and tasks, which allow for continued professional development. My experience here has taught me to stay committed because I know good, hard work will always be valued and acknowledged.

Whether an opportunity to work with a variety of exciting technologies or having a dream to come work in the United States, I’ve always been encouraged to pursue all goals I set.
Perficient believes in a strong work-life balance. What is one way you accomplish this?
Perficient continues to support an emphasis on a healthy work-life balance. Most recently, Perficient rolled out enhanced time off policies, which allow colleagues to take much-needed and deserved time off to rest and rejuvenate. It’s something I think will make a huge difference in colleagues’ ability to manage their work-life balance.
