Making the leap from intern to full-time employee over the years, Mariana’s built close, family-like relationships within the entire Ultimate Software team. According to Mariana, being able to share her passions and favorite activities with colleagues—such as fun yoga classes or weekend group scuba-diving outings—really fosters a strong and special personal bond between herself and co-workers outside of the office.
Mariana starts her mornings with a quick jog before heading to the office to motivate her team into action at the daily Stand-Up Meeting. Mariana works hard to support team operations—making smart tech decisions and inspiring creative coding. She communicates with team members and Product Managers to stay up-to-date on product pipelines, troubleshoot impending issues, and give management step-by-step production updates.
