(3) Are there tasks that you particularly like or dislike? What do you typically tackle first?
I enjoy most of the tasks I am assigned, but I have a particular passion for developing new features and designing user interfaces. These tasks allow me to be creative and apply my problem-solving skills to provide users with a seamless experience. On the other hand, I find bug fixing to be challenging, but I also appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow through this process.
In terms of what I tackle first, I usually prioritize the most urgent and critical tasks that need to be completed in a timely manner. Once those are taken care of, I move on to the tasks that require more time or are less pressing. I find this approach helps me manage my workload effectively and ensures that I can deliver high-quality work within the given timelines.
(4) How are the teams structured? Who works in the teams?
This depends on the project, but usually when we are working on Sprints, most of the time we are two frontend developers, two backend developers and the design team. The team has also a consultant, one scrum master and PO.
(5) How does communication take place in the team in view of home office and cooperation across national borders?
In today's increasingly digital workplace, effective communication is critical to ensure seamless collaboration among team members who work from home or across different cities or even countries. Virtual meetings and with the help of project management tools, we’re having an open and constant communication, daily meetings provide an opportunity for team members to discuss ongoing projects tasks, share updates, and collaborate on solutions.
The collaboration among team members from different countries is crucial, and we have learned to prioritize clear communication, avoiding idioms or slang that may not be familiar to all team members, and respecting diverse cultural norms and practices. Our commitment to clear communication and multi cultural respect has resulted in a welcoming and inclusive environment that we are proud to be a part of.
In summary, effective communication in a team can take many forms and requires a combination of tools and strategies. Clear communication, regular updates, and respect for language and cultural differences are key to ensuring effective collaboration in our remote and cross-cultural team environment.
