Domino Celebrates International Women In Engineering Day

June 24, 2024

A Cambridge company has marked this year’s International Women in Engineering Day on 23rd June by paying tribute to its female employees working in key technical roles.

Domino, a world leader in coding, marking and digital printing technologies used across a wide range of industries, has always been committed to helping its employees to achieve their career potential by providing the support and resources needed to expand skills, achieve new qualifications and broaden experience.

Central to its diversity and inclusion pledge, the company welcomes the annual awareness campaign by the Women’s Engineering Society which highlights the range of rewarding careers open to everyone in the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.


Maggy Manguian is R&D Manager in charge of developing inkjets for Domino’s Continuous Inkjet Printing and Thermal Inkjet Printers, as well as supporting various functions from manufacture to product management to ensure continuity of supply.

She says: “From a very young age I had a keen interest in Science and Maths, studying for a degree in Physical and Chemistry Science and then a PhD in Polymer Science. This opened up opportunities to work in a range of sectors such as cosmetic and household products, composite materials for wind turbine and marine and for the past nine years in inkjet at Domino.

I particularly enjoy being as part of a team, involving colleagues with different backgrounds and expertise to deliver high quality products for our customers, which meet market, operations and regulatory compliance requirements.

“As a woman working in a job I love, I find a quote from Marie Curie really inspirational: ‘We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained’.”


Jayasri Allipuram is a Software Test Engineer with responsibility for ensuring the quality and functionality of software products to meet customers’ requirements.

She says:I chose a career in software testing because of my passion for technology and problem-solving, making sure our programs run smoothly for users.

I did a Master’s degree in database management systems, as well as undertaking other courses on software development, mathematics and logic.

“One of the many things that I like most about my current role is constantly learning along the way and working with a team of talented developers.

I would tell younger women that scientific and engineering roles are incredibly rewarding and full of opportunities, allowing you to solve real-world problems, be creative, and make a positive impact. Also believe in yourself and your abilities, and remember that with hard work and determination, you can achieve great things.”


Jessica Godleman is Team Leader for Data Platform, a role which

encompasses data science, development of internal R&D software applications and design of user interfaces for Domino products.

She says: “I did an MChem in Chemistry and then a PhD in Polymer Science with Domino. Initially I worked as a Chemist, then in the automation of ink development and now in our cross-functional Shared Services department, supporting all R&D channels with data handling, storage and analysis.

“I have always been fascinated by science and engineering because I love learning about how or why things work (or don’t work) and this role gives me the opportunity to delve into lots of different areas of the business.

It’s really important to have diversity across science and engineering; every single person can have a different perspective on a project and it’s often the collective decision-making that yields the best result.”


 Rachel Hurst, Chief Operating Officer concludes: “The annual International Women in Engineering Day is very important in highlighting successful female role models at different career stages to inspire more women and girls to believe they can do it too.

“I trained in Manufacturing Engineering as I like problem-solving and feel good about making a difference. Manufacturing engineers take products from design into manufacture and ensure they meet market needs – it’s a great role to learn about a business and how it runs. Domino is an excellent environment for women in technical roles and I’m delighted that we support this annual focus.”
