Shajna Rahman – Network Technical Architect

Posted on: 2nd April 2024

Shajna joined our team of network architects in 2021, bringing with her a 25-year background in technical architect, IT analyst and project engineering roles in the technology, power and rail industries.  

Her role involves working alongside our customers to plan, design and implement data communication networks for a wide range of public, private and not for profit sector organisations. 

“I really enjoy what I do,” says Shajna.

“Researching network technologies and staying up to date on advancements in the field is my passion. Networking is a very interesting subject, and staying at the forefront of what we do means continually learning new skills as technology evolves. 

One day I might be planning and designing networks, and the next I’ll be implementing upgrades to hardware and software or performing equipment maintenance and repairs. 

One of the most interesting parts of my job is really getting under the skin of an organisation so we can design a solution specifically for their needs, both now and as they grow.  I love liaising with the customer to understand their network requirements, and then presenting a solution.  It allows me to show them what’s possible, and it’s a great feeling demonstrating the difference we can make to their business.” 

When it comes to encouraging more women into the tech industries, Shajna is forthright: “I’ve been in the industry for over two decades, and while there have been improvements in the numbers, I think there is still a long way to go to get more women into IT. 

It’s good to see schools and employers working hard at grass roots level to encourage girls to get into tech subjects and carve out a good career. We have women at board and senior management level, showing what can be achieved with the right employer and a supportive environment. 

This is a hugely exciting time to work in technology, yet across Europe only one in three STEM graduates are female, so it's good to be part of a business aiming to change that.

Looking to the future I see myself progressing in my field, as there is still much to learn, and I hope one day to be leading a team of network engineers and helping them advance their own careers.    

ITPS is a great company to work for, everyone is friendly and approachable, and someone will always try to help if anyone is dealing with a problem.  As a mum who works full time, flexible working allows me to balance my family commitments with work, and that’s invaluable.”
