Hear what some of our employees say …

"While women are underrepresented in this industry, I have always felt respected. SPSE has provided opportunities to voice my opinions and ideas, and to carve out a career that I enjoy."
Penny Stanger – Principal Consultant Engineer
"What started as an internship at SPSE led me to a career in Software Testing, where I am now the QA Manager and lead a team of amazing Test Analysts."
Catarina Marques – QA Manager
"It’s great to see so many talented women become thought leaders and influencers across the organisation. When I started at SPSE in 2015, I was often the only woman in a meeting. Recently, I’ve even seen women outnumber men in some critical and strategic discussions."
Dana Barrasso – Principal Consultant
"In 6 years, I moved from a junior technical support role to product manager and leading a team of 5 – thanks to my hard work being recognised, and SPSE’s belief in me."
Mariana Marques – Product Manager
"In terms of opportunity, I feel the Company is doing well in promoting gender equality. At the lower management levels we have good representation of women, with more women now being promoted to higher levels. I encourage the female members of my team to take on responsibilities to help their promotion prospects and I make specific efforts to ensure there is no unconscious gender bias in our activities."
Steve Hall – Director of Digital Applications
"I have worked at SPSE for 8 years and have always felt supported in developing my career and making my voice heard. The management team has always been very receptive to improving our female friendly policies at work and I have had the opportunity to take on more responsibility as the company has grown. It has always been a diverse, supportive environment and we have hired and developed some very talented women."
Catherine Boyd-Maunsell – Chief Operating Officer
"With the engineering profession consisting overwhelmingly of men, I am proud that SPSE has been able to attract a relatively high number of female colleagues, who first of all contribute through their high-quality engineering skills and secondly by contributing new perspectives and varied experiences resulting in fresh ideas and different approaches to innovation."
Sean Bermingham – Head, BU Formulated Products
