Women Who Tech: Ladies of Phorm
Happy Women’s Equality Day/ Week. Today is the anniversary of Women’s right to vote so we want to take this time to spread appreciation for the ladies of Tactus (Phorm’s parent co.)! Tech may still be dominated by men but no one dominates their jobs like these women!
Left to Right: Amanda (HR Manager), Carriza (Manufacturing Technician), Sarah (Marketing Specialist), Katja (Director of User Experience), Joanna (Industrial Designer), Ambika (Materials Engineer), Nazbanoo (Materials Engineer)
Best part of the job: Interacting with so many talented people. I’m no engineer and I couldn’t create the greatest technology BUT I can help support those who do and celebrate the successes we’ve made! I picked such a great team 😉
What would you morph into? A cat! I could do with a few days of relaxing in the sun and sleeping.
Best part of the job: Aside from the awesome people- being able to see the progression of our products from the engineering/concept stage to the functional ones!
What would you morph into? A tree, it would be like watching an endless time lapse of season scenery!
Best part of the job: Learning new ways for our tech to be applied everyday. Special projects that help the visually impaired, to automotive controls. We could do it all! Sharing Phorm and seeing the reactions keeps me excited through all the start up struggles!
What would you morph into? A hawk, I’ve always got my eye on you!
Best part of the job: Watching brilliant minds create brand new, game-changing technology. Designing studies for brand new devices constantly keeps me on my toes!
What would you morph into: A whale! It’d be fascinating to see what goes on in the parts of the world that people rarely see!
Best part of the job: Making and experimenting! Having so much freedom to create what I want and not what I’m told to make. It is also exciting to collaborate with mechanical engineering and user experience to think about the product functionally along with creating something visually stunning.
What would you morph into: A bear! I’ve always loved them and they remind me of my time in California! (Joanna comes from Poland, and is studying in Scotland. She is with Tactus until the end of Summer.)
Best part of the job: New projects every day! There are countless applications of our technology which means countless projects that make touch screens more useful. Here you feel that you can play a role in the success of the company no matter what your job is.
What would you morph into: A lion, they are strong, quick, fearless and get to roam around amazing African nature… As long as dentist hunters aren’t around!
