Engagement Manager

Based in Canberra, Akhil works with our Federal Government clients and our tech team translating business requirements into digital solutions.

Akhil works with our clients from project discovery to launch, making sure projects run smoothly — on schedule and on budget. Akhil also has strong technical skills, which means he can more effectively ‘bridge’ the gap between the client and Salsa’s tech team...talking tech to the developers and plain English to the clients.

  • Business requirements analysis
  • Digital strategy and development
