  • Feel committed to the inclusion of women in technology? So do we. We asked Corine Vives to share her experience as a woman in tech for 20 years at Avanade. See what she said about how the company has changed and what's kept her here: #WorkAtAvanade

  • Love learning about people's hidden talents? So do we. When we learned Delivery Management Director Arti Venkatesh could bake, we asked her to help design and bake a cake for our #Avanade20Years Houston celebration. Fourteen hours later and it was perfect:

    #Avanade20Years: A cake worthy of 20 years, baked by one of our own

    What's a party without a cake? At the Avanade Houston office's anniversary celebration, there was one attraction that was so popular people were taking selfies with it: Avanade's 20th birthday cake! Linh Nguyen, Gulf Coast General Manager (and Avanade's first-ever employee) got the idea for the cake at Houston's holiday party, when he learned delivery management director Arti Venkatesh had a gift for baking.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Avanade (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.


    Very conversational interview process. A very good team of people. Some technical questions and mostly situational questions, with how would you solve X. The process was rather smooth. It started with a phone interview and then moved to a 1:1 physical one in the downtown Chicago office.
