Akansha Goyal

Product Manager


I create AI/ML and data products to help Barclays Business to do their jobs efficiently.

I love solving new problems with the use of new technologies. I get to work on state-of-the-art solutions, which don’t exist before.

I interact with a lot of people as I have to coordinate between multiple teams. Most of my work goes into collaborating with the development teams to ensure that whatever is being built will solve the problem that we are trying to solve

I am a computer engineer. I started my journey as a SQL developer for Barclays Investment Bank, and moved on to a Data Analyst for the consumer bank. Post this I became a Business Analyst and then I was promoted to Product Manager within 6 months for the AI/ML team within Barclays. After 4 years, I will be starting my MBA at Cambridge Judge Business School in sep 21.

I will be starting my MBA at Cambridge judge business school in sep 21. Post which, I want to work as a digital strategy consultant in UK with MBB.

I am a very out-going and social person. I love going to my favourite cafe over the weekends, where I meet people from different backgrounds, professions and aspirations. I also love to cook, try new cuisines, travel, dance and read. I have a blog and a podcast, which stems from my passion to share and create equal learning opportunities for everyone around me.

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.
