Each month, we’re getting to know an Equativ employee from one of our global offices by asking them a few questions.
Meet Mélina, a Product Owner in our Valbonne office, and see what she enjoys about working at Equativ.
Q. How would you describe your day-to-day?
My position plays a crucial role in advancing the success of our products and ensuring they align with the requirements of our clients and the market. A typical day for me encompasses a blend of strategic planning, collaboration, and practical efforts to oversee and enhance our product offerings.
Q. What do you find most rewarding about your job?
The most fulfilling aspect of my job is the chance to create a concrete influence on the success of our products. I thoroughly enjoy serving as the connection between stakeholders and the development team, propelling the product’s progress while guaranteeing it conforms to the company’s goals and client requirements.
Furthermore, working alongside a skilled team and continually gaining knowledge in this ever-evolving field keeps me enthusiastic and driven.
Q. What are some of your personal interests or hobbies?
One of my most significant personal interests is my involvement with autism-related organizations. My younger brother is autistic, and this has always been a significant part of my life. My engagement with these organizations aims to raise further awareness about autism, promote acceptance of differences, and provide support to families affected by this condition. It’s a cause that’s very dear to me and I find great fulfillment in contributing to a more inclusive and understanding world.
Q. What do Equativ’s values mean to you and how do you see them in action?
To me, Equativ’s values represent a set of guiding principles that not only shape our company culture, but also influence our interactions with clients, colleagues, and partners.
Be Brave: This value entails embracing fresh challenges and cultivating innovative thinking. It involves being open to new possibilities and venturing beyond conventional boundaries.
Be Thoughtful: Underscores the importance of considering the consequences of our actions on others. It involves taking a moment to reflect on the ethical implications of our decisions.
Be Together: This value emphasizes the power of collaboration and teamwork. It highlights that we can accomplish more when we work harmoniously, utilizing each individual’s strengths and nurturing a supportive atmosphere.
Q. What is your favorite memory at Equativ?
One standout memory for me is Innovative Days. Over the course of those three days, I experienced an incredible sense of team unity.
Collaborating with a diverse group of brilliant minds was both challenging and invigorating. This experience was particularly thrilling for me this year as it highlighted the strength of teamwork, everyone’s overflowing creativity, and our ability to overcome complex challenges.
Furthermore, achieving victory in the Innovative Days competition was a genuinely gratifying moment. It felt like a well-earned acknowledgement of the commitment, time, and hard work invested by my entire team.
