Senior Business Consultant - Melbourne, Australia Alastair Coombridge
Bravura Solutions offers many varied and, at times, challenging opportunities. It is also great to work with teams of talented people who are dedicated to the organisation’s products and services.

I am a Senior Business Consultant for Sonata, working from the Melbourne office. I have been working on Sonata, and its predecessor, Talisman for more than ten years. Over this time I have seen the product mature in both technology and functionality and it has been exciting to be a part of this.

I work at Bravura Solutions because it offers a broad range of products and opportunities. I was excited to join and to be a part of a multinational company with a proven track record of past implementations and foresight to develop new up-to-date products for evolving markets. Bravura Solutions offers many varied and, at times, challenging opportunities. It is also great to work with teams of talented people who are dedicated to the organisation’s products and services.

I started with an organisation called Tacit back in 1999, working on the Talisman wealth management application as a PowerBuilder/Sybase developer. Over the next four-and-a-half years I moved into a lead developer role and then a Systems Analyst role. A short time after this Bravura Solutions acquired Tacit and the Talisman product suite.

A few years ago Talisman was transformed into Sonata and I had numerous roles as part of that transformation – leading a local team in Melbourne, providing training and mentoring and working closely with senior project managers and other company stakeholders. Early in 2012, I moved into a consulting role and have been involved in pre-sales presentations, RFP responses and liaising with clients on the strengths and broad capability of Sonata. I am looking forward to what the future holds and the other opportunities Bravura Solutions has to offer.

The best thing about working at Bravura Solutions is definitely the people. Bravura Solutions employs experienced, talented individuals who are passionate about the products they work on and consistently bring their best to the projects they are involved in. Of course the company also has other great things to offer, such as flexible work hours and working from home arrangements that can help to make work/life balance achievable. Overall Bravura Solutions is an interesting place to work, with plenty of interesting projects and opportunities to travel across Australia and internationally.
