I’m a Full Stack Developer and a Scrum Master for Amazee Labs. This means I spend a lot of my days helping with estimations, planning sprints and retrospectives, and generally making sure our agile processes are working for the fantastic scrum team.

Amazee Summer BBQ 2018

You hear the rumors, “All our old Amazee friends will come”, they say. “The food will be delicious and we’ll get to meet Alex in person”, they say.

Well, the long-awaited day, highlighted for months in our calendars, August 30th - Amazee Summer BBQ, finally arrived. This distinguished tradition goes back years, but it was a first for me and it didn’t disappoint!

Team LTS in Slovenia

At Amazee, there are a number of people that work remotely and even though we do our best to ensure that remote employees feel connected, there isn’t anything better than meeting face-to-face.

Meanwhile, in Texas: just another day at the office

I have a Texas Camp meeting in 20 minutes where I’ll onboard our new sponsor coordinator. Earlier today I was building out a spec plan for a new project we recently kicked off. Yesterday I ran payroll and worked through compliance reports for the state of Washington. All while leading back-to-back sprint-end client demo meetings.

My working day - returning from maternity leave

It’s quite an emotional journey to spend nine months growing a tiny human inside you, spending a further four months with them 24/7, and then having to leave them for nine hours a day. But even though I miss my daughter, it has been great to be back at work and getting back into the swing of all things not related to bottles and diapers.

Remote - or not?

Am I a remote Amazee or not? Sort of both, actually. 

My situation is the following; I live in Zurich, and mostly work at the Amazee Labs Hub in Zurich, my team, however, works from the Cape Town Hub and is partly remote.
