We are Windmill: Meet Kuljit Dua
- Life at Windmill
Building digital products for some of the world’s leading enterprises is exciting and challenging. Our Delivery and Location Lead, Kuljit Dua, believes in the power of great teams to accomplish challenges. You will hear him talk a lot about “learning”, be it while tapping into his long experience of developing software for both global giants and cutting-edge startups, or while talking about his passion to keep growing his own skills.
Kuljit developed an affinity for computer applications in his school days. This led to a Master of Computer Applications degree and then over 20 years of delivering and managing software development projects. Over that time, he has managed onshore as well as offshore deliveries of innovative solutions for a range of industry verticals.
Kuljit believes that he has a special affinity for product development and product management, a space he has been in for over 10 years now. His time spent working onsite for clients in the USA, UK, and Canada gives him an expanded worldview that helps him deliver better product outcomes for our clients (or partners, as he calls them). He has been known to say (often) that a happy team ensures happy partners, and this is a principle that he holds dear.
As Location and Delivery Lead in India, Kuljit sees his primary responsibility as ensuring a great working culture in the rapidly expanding India team. He is convinced that continuous learning must be a key part of the culture dynamic. He says, “I want the India office to be known for both its high-quality deliverables and enhanced skills. To me, the best way to create great teams is to ensure growth for all team members.”
Learning is a recurring theme in Kuljit’s life. In fact, he has recently started an intensive Analytics and Machine Learning course from IIM Lucknow, one of India’s leading educational institutions. This focus on education and learning carries over to his vision for the Windmill India Team, “I want potential employees to look forward to great learning experiences and great opportunities and support from the extended team at Windmill.”
Kuljit values the extended team at Windmill. He has been known to say that he sees the team as an extended family with several highly skilled members, all of whom work with the single goal of delivering partner success. In fact, the support from the technical and management teams is something Kuljit really enjoys.
In more philosophical moments, if asked what he thinks will carry the organization forward, he would likely say that it’s the common focus on Wildly Important Goals and the commitment of the CEO, Sunny, in supporting the team in all situations.
Apart from building great teams with the capability to deliver brilliant digital products, Kuljit loves spending time with his lovely family, especially his two kids. He also enjoys traveling. And, yes, he loves keeping up with all of the latest happenings in the world of IT – that yearning for learning never stops!
