She began as an intern at IBM, after which she took up an Analyst role at Atos and was also an Associate at JP Morgan Chase.

Sarrah was a speaker at a technology event, Lesbians Who Tech, a hugely forward-thinking event and community. Its focus is on giving LGBTQ women, non-binary and trans people visibility, opportunities and encouragement to get into a career in technology. “Diverse representation is a priority for us.” Says a statement of the organisation, “We're proud to say that our Summit speakers are 80% queer women, 50% women of colour, 25% Black & Latinx, and 15% transgender and gender nonconforming.”
