Priyanka Rajeshirke – Women challenging the status quo | In pursuit of knowledge


The IT sector is the largest employer of India’s white-collar workforce, and it has the highest representation of women in the workforce, accounting for 30 per cent. Gender diversity is crucial in the tech industry because it creates a more inclusive and effective product that benefits a broader audience. This, in turn, results in increased revenue and sustained company growth. Furthermore, having women in tech helps to reduce the gender bias that is often present in male-dominated industries.

Meet Priyanka Rajeshirke, a highly skilled mobile application developer who is passionate about creating cutting-edge solutions. She is known for her exceptional ability to work efficiently and collaboratively with team members, even remotely. Priyanka is a dedicated learner who consistently strives to expand her knowledge and skills in mobile app development. Her commitment to excellence and attention to detail ensure that her solutions are of the highest quality. Priyanka’s expertise and work ethic make her an invaluable team member.

Initial Days in Kale

Speaking about her initial days, Priyanka says, “After taking a break of two years to focus on my young child, I joined Kale. However, I soon realised that the application used in my previous organisation was very different from the one used in Kale, making it difficult to adapt to the new environment. Nonetheless, with the help of my colleagues, who were understanding, reassuring, and patient, I could acclimate myself to the new application. They were always there to offer guidance, support, and encouragement whenever I needed it, which made the transition process much more manageable. Consequently, increased confidence regarding my work was observed, and the difficulties I previously encountered became of little consequence.”

Working with Male Colleagues

“Working at Kale has given me a sense of belonging and camaraderie, unlike any other workplace I have been to. Kale’s welcoming and empathetic nature makes me feel like a part of their family. As a female employee, I have never experienced discrimination of any kind and feel valued for my skills and contributions. Kale encourages us to use our unique abilities to deliver exceptional results,” says Priyanka.

Work-Life Balance 

Talking about work-life balance, Priyanka says, “As a remote worker, efficiently managing time is paramount to meeting deadlines while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. It involves careful planning and prioritisation of tasks, as well as the ability to stay focused and minimise distractions. Effective time management leads to increased productivity, reduced stress, and overall well-being.”

What makes Kale an employer of choice?

“Kale is a vibrant hub for personal and professional growth in the heart of a bustling metropolis. With cutting-edge technologies shaping the industry, Kale challenges its employees to be at the forefront of innovation and excellence. The work environment is accommodating, with flexible timings allowing for a perfect work-life balance. While most communication happens through MS Teams, I have met some of my colleagues in person, forging valuable connections and friendships. At Kale, every day presents an opportunity to learn, grow, and make a meaningful impact,” says Priyanka.

Quest for knowledge

Priyanka concludes by saying, “Since joining Kale, I have felt it was the perfect choice. The work environment has allowed me to develop my skills in ways that I never thought were possible. As a result, I have experienced professional and personal growth, and I am truly grateful for that. Looking ahead, I am excited to expand my knowledge of various applications and technologies and become an exceptional developer who stays up-to-date with the latest trends.”
