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.
We’re excited to introduce you to Laura Simonetto, our new Office Manager in Zurich.
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!
Welcoming an old employee back certainly doesn’t happen that often, and we’re super happy to have Adam as part of our team again!
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. We believe it is essential in order to grow as a team and to reinforce the bonds between colleagues in the company.
It has already been two weeks since all the Amazee front-enders gathered to discuss the latest front-end related topics.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, we started to challenge ourselves with the Frontend Web Development quiz at our last meeting. Due to time constraints, we ended in the middle of the second section which related to HTML tags, with a great score of 26/33.
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.
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.
