At BGL, we genuinely believe that without the right people – we wouldn’t be where we are today. So, we thought it was time to introduce you-all to the BGL Team! Meet BGL superstar and Simple Fund 360 Quality Assurance Tester, Krishneil Mudaliar!!
Krish has been a BGLer for an incredible 9 years 👏🤩 and is an essential part of the Simple Fund 360 team!
What was your first job at BGL?
After finishing university, like many at BGL I was very lucky to start in the support team where I was able to learn more about the BGL SMSF and Corporate Compliance software range.
During my early years at BGL I was also a member of the training team where I had great opportunities to meet many users of our software not only locally in Melbourne but also interstate and regional Victorian areas like Ballarat, Kyneton, Traralgon and Shepparton.
I then moved into the Simple Fund 360 team as a Quality Assurance tester which is my current role. During my time in the role I have worked on many projects such as Migration, Actuarial Certificates, Single Sign on and Compliance based functions.
What three words would you use to describe BGL’s culture?
Innovative, fun and diverse.
Which BGL clubs are you a member of?
I am one of the organisers of the BGL Cricket Club and also unfortunately the worst player in the club 😂. It is always great fun to play with people from all departments at BGL every Monday night in Summer, even though I get hit for six each week 🏏
What do you enjoy most about working at BGL?
The best thing about working at BGL is how well our team all work together towards one goal. Each department at BGL is always very helpful to each other and we are very lucky to have so many mentors around the company to help us grow in our roles.
What’s one thing that surprised you about working at BGL?
The endless opportunities for continuous professional development at BGL is great. We are supported in each department to undertake many professional courses such as CPA, CA, Nanodegrees and to attend industry leading seminars to help us grow in our roles and better assist the users of our software.
Who at BGL would you most like to swap places with for a day?
I would love to trade places with James Luo who is the Lead Developer in the Simple Fund 360 team for a day. The Artificial Intelligence projects his team are working on are revolutionary and I wish I could borrow his brain for a day 🧠
Do you have a favourite charity you wish more people knew about?
How do you prefer to start your day?
I usually prefer to start the day listening to Gary Lyon and Tim Watson on AM radio.
What show are you currently binge-watching?
In isolation I am currently binge-watching Game of Thrones. We are also lucky to have a movie ratings board (BGL’s Rotten Bananas) in the office organised by Gary Hall who is our in house movie expert. So I have a long list of movies to watch also if this isolation period continues.
What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?
Trying to channel my younger Brett Lee style bowling skills in the back yard to prepare for the next BGL cricket season 😊🏏
How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?
Pineapple on BBQ Chicken Pizza is a must.
