"CPQ added a splash of color to the vanilla version of my pre-CPQ Salesforce world."
Meet Megha Jaju, a Salesforce Developer & CPQ consultant who has been with Neocol since 2020.
Megha's Salesforce career began as a QA for Salesforce implementations and has evolved over the last decade. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Megha had to fight for her first role as a Salesforce Developer and hasn't looked back.
So what can Mighty Megha do with over 10+ years working in the Salesforce Ecosystem? As a core developer, she is a double threat with the ability to both configure and code. A little over 4 years ago, Megha was introduced to Salesforce CPQ and her journey to Neocol took off. She was excited to work with CPQ as she says, "CPQ added a splash of color to the vanilla version of my pre-CPQ Salesforce world." Even better, her first CPQ project was implemented by both her and her life partner, and she has been working on multiple CPQ implementations ever since.
In February of 2020, just before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Megha and her partner relocated from India to the United States, as dependent visa holders looking for an opportunity in the CPQ space. That's when she met Neocol's CEO, Ryan Lott, and was given the opportunity to join the Neocol family as one of our CPQ and Billing experts.
"This was the fastest offer I have ever received. I talked to Ryan on a Tuesday, interviewed on Wednesday, had my offer in hand by Friday, and officially joined Neocol on Monday, October 12th, 2020. I can't thank Ryan enough for giving me this opportunity and bringing me onboard for this exciting journey. I feel like I am growing both personally and professionally with Neocol, literally learning something new every day! Neocol is an amazing company to work for, the culture and flexibility to work effectively from anywhere has helped me a lot being a mother of a toddler. "
As for what she does at Neocol, Megha focuses on solving customer problems using Salesforce Revenue Cloud as a Salesforce Developer & CPQ Consultant.
"I am usually involved with designing, implementing, and validating solutions, for customer demonstrations. I strive for the best solutions, tailoring them to address every customer's pain points. I like what I do because I can share, learn, and collaborate. I enjoy working on customer requirements that challenge me."
Megha was chosen as the Neocol June Employee of the Month. She was chosen because she brilliantly demonstrates our Neocol core values through her #communication & #collaboration. Her work demonstrates clearly that problems can be solved as a #team, and individuals don't need to take unnecessary pressure on themselves when it can be shared to the benefit of the project.
“Megha is always a superstar but her willingness and ability to help her fellow coworkers work through roadblocks is incredible to see firsthand. We are SO lucky to have such a collaborative, smart, and passionate person here and I feel especially lucky to be on Dude (Brightly!) with her! Thank you so much for getting me unstuck on my test data, Megha!!” - Jenn Meehan
