A seasoned information technology professional, Taran N. began working at Kimberly-Clark as a contractor, and six months later, the company offered him a full-time position that he could not resist!

“The work-life balance is amazing here,” Taran said. “Whenever I need to step away to pick up kids or take my dog to the vet, nobody questions it. They seem happy I am taking time off for the family.”

Taran also feels that his director genuinely cares about his well-being and the amount of workload he manages. “(My leader) even encourages us to take time off even if it would be inconvenient,” Taran adds.

With over 10 years of experience in information technology, Taran is one of the team members charged with keeping Kimberly-Clark’s data safe. As a senior cyber security cloud architect, he collaborated to design the network for the company’s new cloud environment. He also helps developers try out innovative technologies while ensuring that they are safe.

“I hope to continue using my knowledge to architect improved and secure solutions for the business,” Taran says.

Taran’s reserved demeanor is nearly camouflage for his adventurous spirit. While this quiet technologist protects Kimberly-Clark from cyber attacks that could impact the production and distribution of essential products, he can often be found competing in motorcross races on the weekend.

“This is a great place to work and has a very friendly environment. I hope I can continue to grow at Kimberly-Clark, and the company continues to grow as well,” Taran affirms.
