Staff picks – by Maryam Bagherzadeh
We take some time to talk with Software Developer Maryam Bagherzadeh about the similarities and differences between people and programs.
Role at MYOB
I am a developer. I solve problems and make sure not to create new ones! I work in the partner space making business life easier for our 40000 partners.
I love my job because it allows me to work collaboratively with other minds to deliver projects and features that our clients value. Building products that they use daily also brings a sense of achievement and purpose. Software development is all about learning, creativity and achievement.
I wanted to become a psychologist and university lecturer so I could help people, analysing and fixing their problems. I studied IT and now I’m dealing with computers and software applications, so I’m still analysing and fixing problems! I enjoy it, my patients are the applications I’m working on. They are good listeners and less complicated than people after all!
Stuff I love right now
- I love travelling and one of my dreams is to put a tick next to all the places that I’d like to visit. But at the same time, I’m a nervous flyer!
- I’ve always loved reading books and recently I’ve discovered the enjoyment of listening to audio books. I find it quite convenient and relaxing.
- I LOVE shopping!!!
