How long have you been at TORA and what was your first role here?
I started working at TORA straight after I graduated and it was my first contact with the world of real software engineering.
I started as a Junior developer, and throughout the years I climbed through the ranks to become a mentor, senior software engineer and technical lead for the team in charge of the user interface.
My current role is Product Manager for one of the main product lines. I made this transition 2 years ago to complement my technical knowledge with business/domain knowledge and also in search for new challenges.
In May 2020 I will have been working at TORA for 9 years.
What is it like to be a product manager at TORA?
The transition from development to product management came with its own set of challenges for a person that used to be very hands-on. I find the subject matter (financial markets and trading) is something I am very passionate about. I enjoy developing the research and building a product strategy together with the Product Owners.
Why do you think people should join TORA?
TORA is a very interesting business and if you like constantly solving complex and challenging problems, then you will really like working here.
