Alexander Kalinovsky brings his strong Financial Services background and enthusiasm for Agile development to his role as Global Head of Engineering at Wipro Digital, driving the digital transformation agenda for many of the world’s leading brands. He is a senior IT leader with extensive experience managing successful application development and operational teams, along with establishing global development practices and partnering with global organisations.
Alex has spent over 10 years working in Financial Services in development and infrastructure, specialising in payment systems and FX solutions. He has also developed a passion for Agile and how it can transform the way development is done. Alex is particularly fascinated by how, in recent years, its focus has shifted on alignment to business outcomes, micro-services architecture, continuous delivery, containerisation of applications, and cloud, all coming together to finally realise the true promise of Agile – the delivery of customer-centric solutions to the market at speed, and ability to measure, learn, and rapidly change.
Much like Agile itself, Alex is inspired by the rapid change of his daily work environment and the new challenges he tackles head-on with his teams, from organizational matters to solving complex engineering problems. He helps to grow our practice and shape solutions for our customers that will guide them on their Digital Transformation journey.
Alex’s passion for constant change and new experiences extends to his varied range of interests outside of work: music, hiking, scuba diving, gym, long distance road trips, and traveling in general. He even successfully blends his hobbies with his tech and delivery skills, working on production for a music festival every year!
