"I feel fortunate to work in a respectful work environment, which is professional yet has an informal vibe"

My Role

I’m responsible for keeping my agile team productive and contributing with value increments to our products, which means ensuring that they have a well-defined and prioritized backlog to pick work items from. Although there is currently a physical distance, I feel connected and in constant contact with everyone virtually. I connect and work with my team and every other contributor to the product we work on - other POs, architects, user interface designers, devOps, product management, and organizational management. I have the chance to collaborate with various teams across the organization to deliver top work.

A day in my life

My morning starts with the team’s daily meeting, the first 15 minutes are reserved for small talk, just to wake up and set a good mood for the day. These informal spaces are extremely important when we are all working remotely; they help people feel more closely connected. We sync up on the current work and are ready to start the day aligned with each other. 

Though I have several meetings scheduled every day with people around the world, I have autonomy to manage my remaining activities and have them conciliated with my personal needs, which is something I truly treasure. I feel fortunate to work in a respectful work environment, which is professional yet has an informal vibe, alongside talented people that makes my Hitachi journey more enjoyable.
