Why did you decide to work in the tech industry?
From a very young age, I found science and technology fascinating, interesting, and very exciting. I only found my inclination for sciences at the end of high school. I decided to work in technology when I applied for my master’s studies in engineering management.
During my university studies, I developed a strong interest in computers, computer–person interaction, and user-centered development. I also saw how modern technology makes our everyday life and work so much easier. I really liked the idea of being the bridge between the engineers and the users because I can understand both of them from a different perspective. I was sure I wanted to use this knowledge in my job somehow.
How can you describe your current role? What’s your responsibility area?
I am a technical writer. My job is to write technical documentation and quick guides for robotic end-of-arm tools. My responsibility is to gather information from robot integrators and software engineers and make it understandable for the end-user in the documentation. My job is flexible, very interesting, and full of challenges. It requires a lot of problem-solving, patience, creativity, and preciseness. My tasks are very complex, and being relatively new to the technical writer profession, I face many challenges and learn a lot every day. I always maintain a good relationship with the customer’s colleagues, which is extremely important when working at a consulting company.
What career plans do you have for the future, and how do you see your further professional development?
I would like to learn the technical writer profession thoroughly and always be the best version of myself in my job. I would like to have more responsibility and even a small team to manage in the future. My ultimate dream is to learn to program and become a software developer one day.
At Sigma Technology, I know for sure that I don’t have to worry about personal and professional development. The company helps in both fields with internal and external training. There is always an opportunity to learn.
What can you advise for women just entering the tech?
Always dream big and work hard to achieve your goals. Hard work pays off. Always believe in what you do and never let anyone get you off track. Beginnings may be difficult, but if you are persistent, you can achieve anything.
