It's all about timing

This is an exciting time to be at Infosys, especially here in the US.

There are about 20,000 of us, spread across 47 states. 

We don’t think we have all the answers at Infosys, and that is why we partner with some very smart collaborators to address the latest challenges in digital, cloud, artificial intelligence and other enterprise technologies.  Whether you speak SAP or Oracle, Microsoft or IBM, Adobe or VMWare – we speak your language, too.

But we also know that some of the most interesting solutions to tomorrow’s problems will come from companies that aren’t so well-known.

That is why we created the Infosys Innovation Fund, setting aside $500 million this year alone to identify and nurture startups around the world that can bring breakthrough ideas to our clients.  We offer the market development and client validation they need to scale, our clients get out of the box solutions to their problems.

This also gives YOU the opportunity to team with some of the most exciting new companies you’ve never heard of – all while enjoying the stability, investments and market reach of working at a multibillion global company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Innovation Department at Infosys… is Infosys.

Does your current employer have an innovation hub?  Perhaps an R&D lab, some centers of excellence or a skunkworks team?  Yup, been there, done that, got the t-shirt. 

Hand on heart, we really believe that innovation is the job of every single person at Infosys (also known as “Infoscions”).  After all, doing things the way they’ve always been done isn’t likely to change the world, impress your client or make it fun to come to work every day.

Here are just a few ways you’ll get an opportunity to stretch your innovation muscles at Infosys.

Design Thinking at Infosys

You’ve been solving problems since you were tiny.

Humans are intuitively wired to identify patterns, form ideas, and create solutions. As children, we're curious to explore how things work and make sense of the world in our own unique way. However, years of training in more rigid problem solving methodologies force us to unlearn other, more organic methods.

Design thinking unboxes us, marrying conventional problem solving methods, intuition, and above all, empathy with the user who will ultimately benefit from the solution. That user might be your client, your client’s customer or a colleague down the hall.  The design thinking process challenges you to first define the right problem and only then look for solutions.

Using this approach, Infoscions – from technology architects and business consultants to HR managers and sales professionals – learn to think like designers.  We use rationality and creativity in equal measure to design software, processes and strategies.  We rapidly try, test and improve upon new ideas until they serve a clear purpose.  

With more than 60,000 Infoscions trained in design thinking in the last year alone, we believe this represents an investment and scale that will disrupt our industry.

Zero Distance

Zero Distance is the Infosys approach to grassroots innovation. 

Getting to zero distance – to the user of a solution, to the underlying code and ultimately to value --  requires us not to simply deliver a requested outcome, but to question, think, and innovate proactively.

To do this, you’ll receive mentoring, helping you identify possible opportunities to innovate while on the job. We don’t believe innovation can be templatized, but we do find that a common framework and vocabulary is helpful.

For example, in each project we take on, Infoscions are challenged in five ways:

  • Look around and learn from others
  • Do something over and beyond the scope of a project
  • Do something better than before
  • Articulate the value of innovations in a way that matters to users
  • Share that knowledge with others


If you’re reading this, you probably already understand the value, importance and – yes, we’ll come out and say it – the sheer geeky fun of using technology to change the world. 

But too many kids, young adults and workers across the US are missing out on this opportunity.

Infosys Foundation USA is focused on bridging the digital divide in America by supporting high quality computer science education and coding skills with a particular focus on under-represented communities. It aims to give children and young adults the skills they need to become creators, not just consumers, of technology.  

The Foundation has pursued this mission by partnering with many internationally acclaimed non-profits and institutions like Code.org, New York Academy of Sciences, DonorsChoose.org, GirlsWhoCode and the CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. From enabling computer education in K-12, to supporting research in computer science, and empowering adults with IT training that enhances their employability, they are helping to catalyze a human revolution.

In addition, Infosys Foundation USA recently committed a million dollars to the Infy Maker Awards to inspire Makers of all ages demonstrate creative excellence in making projects with genuine impact.

She Definitely Will! - get inspired by Shyh-Mei's inspiring journey as a woman in technology 

Shyh-Mei Ho

Associate Vice President, Enterprise Architecture

Palo Alto, California


Early dreams

As a girl in Taiwan, I was a bit of a dreamer. I loved literature and I thought I might become a writer.

But my sister encouraged me to pursue science. She went to the U.S. to get her PhD. in physics. I wasn't sure about going to the U.S. or science actually, but my mother also thought it would be a good idea for me to follow in her footsteps. So I came to Temple University in Philadelphia in my early 20s to study biophysics.

Not long after that, maybe 18 months, I had a huge wake-up call. My mother passed away. We were all so profoundly sad, and at first I thought maybe I should go back to Taiwan. Then, I realized that it was time for me to grow up. I was the youngest daughter of the family but I wanted to make some decisions of my own.

About this time, I met my future husband. He was a physical chemist, but he was using computers for his research and was excited about their potential. He encouraged me to explore computer science. So I took a lot of coursework to qualify for my master's program in computer science. I found that I really liked the logical thinking. I worked very hard, often staying up all night to get a program to work.

She definitely will

In the U.S., I quickly learned that my Chinese name, Shyh-Mei, was difficult for Americans to pronounce. So I tried using Mary Ann - a name selected by my English teacher back in Taiwan. But I had a colleague - a female lab technician - who kept asking me to teach her my real name. Every time we met, she would ask me to remind her how to say it. So I decided, I will use my Chinese name when I started my career. My father helped me decide how to transliterate it, and I was proud of this name.

My IBM colleagues at my first job struggled with the name too. Finally one guy said, "I know how to say your name! It's 'She may... or she may not!'" Everyone laughed. I felt horrible, humiliated. This went on for some time. I was quite timid then, but I gathered my courage and the next time the guy said, "She may... or she may not," I answered: "She Definitely Will!" Everyone was quiet after that. That helped me gain some confidence. Even now, if people ask me how I can be a leader even though I have a strong accent, I answer that it's all about confidence.

Racing past barriers

Although I work hard, the technology side of my career has not been the challenging part. I am inspired by the opportunity to work with clients, understand their challenges and jointly develop a solution to expand their business. I found this passion when I moved on from coding to architecture - because this allows me see the whole picture coming together, like a top view. I love to work with clients to solve their problems. I feel that whatever I want to do, I can figure it out. That is how I was able to get all those patents - I had the confidence and I was willing to work hard.

Once a male colleague told me, you're a woman, you should stay at home. But being a woman in technology is not the hardest part either. In fact, my most inspiring mentor was a man, an IBM Fellow who totally believed in me. I admired his technical knowledge, how he understood and conducted business, and his encouragement. I owe him a lot - he believed in me before I believed in myself! For me, the cultural barriers have been the biggest ones. Sometimes, I feel like I'm in a race, and I'm handicapped - so I need to work much harder to catch up with other racers.

New beginnings

I had left IBM when Infosys came to recruit me, and was thinking of retiring. But I realized I still have so much knowledge and there are so many opportunities. I'm still new at Infosys, but I am happy. The new working environment makes me feel refreshed and energized!

I give others the advice I give myself: stay open-minded, never lose the will to learn, and remain passionate about what you do.
