Women in Technology: Sonika Kotwal

"I chose Schwab because of the great culture. There are so many opportunities to grow and be your best every day. I've been here for more than two years and there hasn't been a day I haven't been excited to come to work."

Sonika initially moved to Austin, Texas, for her husband to attend graduate school and saw an advertisement for Schwab that read "It's not just a job, it's a career." More than two years later, Sonika says Schwab is different than other corporations because there is true teamwork. Sonika says she "loves it here."

Sonika was born in India and studied electronics engineering at the University of Pune. In her current role, she works in technical project management and handles the deployment of client-facing products such as the automated advised offers. 

A self-described fitness fanatic, Sonika is a runner who has completed 15 half marathons. Sonika also enjoys spending time with her family.
