“Planning, Planning And More Planning” How This Woman Works For The Washington Post From Armenia

What is your current position?


I am a front end developer for The Washington Post. I am responsible for the feature development and planning, code re-factoring, etc.

How would you describe a typical work day?

My work day starts with reading and answering my emails, if necessary, and checking the current statuses of the tasks and features, which I am responsible for. After working for a couple of hours, I go to the gym, or meet my friends at lunch time. Then, I go to home and continue my work where the rest of the team is joining. My catchup meetings start at 6 p.m. for me because of the time zone difference.

What advice would you give other women interested in working remotely?

If you can organize your time efficiently, working remotely is a great opportunity to do the job required and have a lot of time for your self development and for doing the things you like. It’s a great way not to spend your hours at the office because you have to be there.

Do you have any strategies for staying efficient outside of an office? What tools do you use?

My strategies for being efficient are planning, planning and more planning. I plan my day and I know what I will be doing each hour.

What are the biggest challenges about working remotely? How have you overcome them?

The biggest challenges for me were when I was starting the project, and I needed a lot of information. Since I am not in the same time zone as the rest of the team, I had to find a lot of things myself.

What did you like best about working with PowerToFly?

I am very happy with my PowerToFly team and my talent managers. They are always with you and welcome to help if you need anything.
