Daily stand up,
through boards –
Jonas enjoys the modern way of working.
... from early in the morning. Weather permitting, I use every opportunity to ride my bike to work. Since I prefer to be fit for the whole day – and for the evening – not just in mind but also physically, I often take advantage of what TXS offers in sports. In early 2019, for instance, I went to a TXS skiing event in Austria with some other colleagues.
Speaking of mind: sometimes it does get challenged when I do some targeted training with the support of TXS. After all, our sector is very dynamic and if you stand still you fall back immediately. It sounds like a nerd speaking. But it is extremely important and I enjoy it so much.
When I have something to discuss with my customers, I rather do this personally of by phone. But to exchange files, documents, Q&As etc. I use SAP Jam. This communication tool works like Facebook for the company. When exchanging files that we load into the SAP Funding Management in order to process customer data, I always have to make sure to get the right code page. Otherwise our processing of customer data will not be able to start. For the automated creation of reports based on such data I prefer to use Excel macros. Work should be allowed to be so easy.
Currently, 10 people work in the securitization division – we are a mixed team of consultants, developers and managers.
That means we have to work closely together to keep everyone updated – every day. This is even more so when we are working on introductory projects. But for that purpose, we do not sit together in a meeting room and have a round of talks as you may know from traditional companies, instead we stand around one of our three meeting boards. I think this is really great.
Also, because we daily take a look at the day together with the entire team in a relaxed atmosphere.
