Describe your role in three words


What’s the best thing about your job?

I have the privilege of working with a group of really smart people everyday.

What have you learned since you’ve joined Cien?

Following standards are uncommon in relatively flexible platforms, there’s not just one way.

In your opinion, are the developments in AI going to take our jobs?

Just the boring ones, so we can spend our time in important things.

How do you apply Cien’s core values in your day to day work?

At Cien, we focus on what we can solve and trust the rest of the team will deliver.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

People overestimate what can be done in one day and underestimate what can be done in 10 years. Keep grinding for the long term.
