Soontarin Wonsirikul started her IT career as a part-time columnist and writer during her bachelor degree. After graduation, Soontarin worked as system engineer in the banking sector. Since 2004, she shifted her area of interest to IT process by applying to Software Quality Assurance (SQA) at a software house, i.e. Inetasia.


A year later, Soontarin moved to Thomson Reuters to work as Software Process Improvement (SPI). At Thomson Reuters she still pursued this area as well as expanding her knowledge to related ones, e.g. CMMI, project management, Agile Development, process improvement, and so on. Soontarin's last job title at Thomson Reuters was Technical Specialist who provides process consulting, training, coaching, and several times in a year she is a speaker for external events, e.g. Thailand Practical Software Engineering (TPSE).

After 12 years at Thomson Reuters, Soontarin has made a decision to help people to find their meaning and values throughout their work at Allianz Technology. Her current job title is Agile Transformatio Leadership who would do everything to bring along the employees to adapt to changes via Agile mindset, practices, and so on.
