Latinex Month and our Culture by Claudio Baumann

Eleven months ago, I joined Akamai as a result of the acquisition of a company I was partner of. The former company was small compared to Akamai, but had operations in several countries in the region, from Argentina to Mexico. In this company, we had been working with Akamai for 17 years, but on November 1, 2019, we officially became a part of the family.

My journey to Akamai... and back - Wentao Li, Senior ...

Beijing is my home. Where I was born and raised. But APJ is my playground. As a region, it's very diverse and dynamic, with a lot to experience. Although I'm based in the Beijing office, I have opportunities to collaborate closely with my colleagues in Japan, India, Singapore and Australia. We find synergies and uniqueness in each market, and constantly share ideas and best practices. It's fun, but it's also

How to start growing, and never stop - Gobi Tarmat, ...

My heritage is Sri Lankan. But, at the age of 15 I moved to France as a refugee, fleeing a civil war. Starting a new life from scratch in France, without speaking French, was certainly an interesting journey. But I was lucky enough to have support from my parents. They lived by the mantra of "when there's a will, there's a way". And that helped get me into the French

Headwinds and Tailwinds - Cycling for Climate Awaren ...

_If you told me at the beginning of 2020 that I'd be cycling 250 miles in the remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan, fundraising for an organization called "Climate Ride", and wearing a face mask to go grocery shopping - I would not have believed you. Yet, since March 2020, we've all been living the reality of the Covid-19 pandemic. Social distancing, total lock-down for some, living and working from home,

Becoming a Comms and Analyst Relations leader, Rita ...

My parents were first-generation immigrants from India. They worked hard, made Singapore their home and took all and any challenges head on. They have always lived by the simple philosophy, 'to be the change'. It's a philosophy that I try to live too, and in many ways it's what attracted me to Akamai not too long ago. We're at the heart of the internet and cybersecurity, and globally we are

I joined Akamai Japan in June 2020. Of course, having worked in technology for my whole career, I already knew of Akamai and our strong reputation. I knew it was an intelligent company, with impressive technology, and - above all - a great story that really inspired me. One thing that has struck me since joining is what I would call the "University culture". I had a series of very
