Hailing from diverse backgrounds in politics, economics, and computer engineering, Subin and Gabi found their true calling in the tech realm at Foundry, a company that prides itself on fostering innovation and personal growth.

Subin’s journey into the tech industry is anything but conventional. With a foundation in politics and economics, her path to becoming a technical director and eventually a software developer was paved by her enthusiasm for gaming and technology. Her transition to a technical role at Foundry highlights the company’s commitment to recognising potential and nurturing talent from varied disciplines.

On the other hand, Gabby’s transition from banking to the thrilling world of visual effects during the pandemic exemplifies a strategic pivot aligning her career with her passions. With a background in computer engineering, she was equipped with a solid foundation in software development. However, it was her master’s degree in computer animation and visual effects that catapulted her into a role that marries her technical skills with her creative interests.
