Meet our very own Project Coordinator and Scrum Master
This month we wanted to give you all the opportunity to meet our brilliant Project Coordinator and Scrum Master, Paula Kopiczko. Paula is a vital member of the Alps Engineering Team, ensuring each stage of our developments and new products runs smoothly and efficiently.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your role at Alps?
I wear two hats on the daily basis – I’m Project Coordinator and Scrum Master in our Engineering Team. Since joining Alps in November 2020, I’ve had the chance to help coordinate technical and non-technical projects, but at the same time, coaching the team on understanding and following the Scrum framework and its values.
Can you tell us a bit about your career background?
I started my career as a drafter in the automotive and manufacturing industry, creating detailed technical drawings. This has definitely taught me patience and attention to detail. Then, for several years I’ve been working as a Project Manager, specialising in New Product Design introductions to worldwide markets.
What made you want to be a Project Coordinator?
Having a good knowledge and understanding of the traditional project management techniques, I decided to take on a new challenge and start my adventure with Scrum and Agile at Alps.
I have always been passionate about projects – there’s something incredibly satisfying about overseeing each stage of development, no matter if it’s a new software, a new platform or a physical product.
Do you have any top tips on being a successful Project Coordinator at Alps
Every day could bring a new challenge, especially in such a fast-paced environment like software development… So, it wouldn’t surprise anyone by saying, it’s definitely about the organisation and problem-solving skills!
Also, working closely with a technical “left-brained” team requires lots of creativity in communicating the outcome of our work to the rest of the business! Don’t be scared to use colourful charts and presentations.
