BY BMJ MURIITHI

Here is a success story about a Kenyan-born woman, Nancy Macharia, who  is a Sr. Software Engineer at Cox Automotive in Atlanta, Georgia, and who is encouraging girls interested in the male dominated field not to give up but keep pushing on.

In this interview, she talks of how, among other things, she loves her team and working for the giant company that is building technologies focused on the future.

Ms Macharia, who is a daughter to businessman Macharia Migwi, is one in a team of software engineers, who are leaders and trailblazers transforming the way the world buys, sells, and owns cars, while also enabling entirely new forms of consumer mobility.

She says she joined Cox Automotive because it offers career growth and an opportunity to work on a variety of cutting-edge products. She thrives on giving back to the community and loves to travel.

“For every girl dreaming of a career in technology, this is for you. Strive, stay optimistic. I have faith and passion for all of you. I hope to build a platform that will elevate you when I exit this career,” she says.
