When she’s not fixing a bug or helping develop a new feature at the logistics tech company, Slavasheuskaya is reading up on market industry trends so she’s always ahead of the game. Her to-do list is full, and we’ll get a glimpse into it here.

On her to-do list:

“I participate in the whole analytics product lifecycle – from initial researching and planning to tactical execution and after-launch support. When users get their hands on the final product, it’s extremely rewarding. But being that involved also puts a lot of pressure on me to develop a product users find helpful.”

Which task gets her out of bed in the morning: Developing new products. “It involves collaboration across different teams all focused on one goal: to build a tool that helps its users identify any trends or gaps so they can make sound business decisions,” Slavasheuskaya said.
