MATI AT WORK
What’s your role at Cognizant Softvision?
I’m the Community Manager for .net technology in the Buenos Aires Studio.
Describe a day-in-the-life at work.
I reach the office, prepare my mate tea, check my emails, and start with the programmed tasks for the day. There are days that we have unprogrammed meetings to discuss about some new ideas.
What are some ways you support and motivate your team?
I usually work with them, I try to help in whatever they need. I am part of the team, trying to improve things every day and the problems that arise are solved as soon as possible and always leave us a teaching. I try to discover what they are interested in and what motivates them and achieve it so that they feel that they have all the support of the company through my role.
What do you find the most rewarding about working at Cognizant Softvision?
We have a lot to do, and that is an excellent challenge. New things are presented on a daily basis and solving them depends on teamwork and the capacity that each one contributes to it. I think it is a learning and a constant challenge and that is the most attractive thing about work
