Women in the Auxenta team celebrating Women's Day 

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Sri Lankan Silicon Valley tech firm Auxenta is commemorating Women’s Day by organising a program at its office under this year’s #BalanceforBetter theme. 

The company has achieved a high level of gender balance in its team, with females making up 40% of staff in its office. Reiterating its commitment to enhancing this ratio even further in time to come, the #BalanceforBetter theme pervaded the company’s corridors on International Women’s Day, with surprise gift bags being presented by management to female staff, who were further delighted to find special décor arrangements on their tables when they came in to work. The day was marked by camaraderie and discussions on the role of women in the workplace. 

The company treated the entire staff to refreshments on the occasion. Auxenta was co-founded by Prasath Nanayakakkara and Dr. Shahani Markus, which reflects the equal opportunity DNA entrenched in the company. As a company that is active in US, UK, Ireland, Singapore, Australia and UAE across the continents of America, Europe, Australia and Asia, Auxenta brings global best practices to bear in the Sri Lanka office as well.

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, USA, Auxenta is an innovative software engineering services and technology product consulting company. It works with enterprises, independent software vendors (ISVs), startups and non-profit organisations. 

The ethos of the company is to enable digital transformation by leveraging a focused set of service offerings. Its global clients are distributed into multiple industry verticals including Telco, Financial Services, Logistics, Security, Capital Markets, Apparel and Manufacturing. The fast-growing technology solutions firm, Auxenta, was proud to be named as one of ‘30 Most Innovative Companies to watch for in 2018’.
