2. Describe your typical day at Invenics.
My day starts with a ‘Daily Stand up’ (not so pleasant to hear! eh!. Not bad though 😊) wherein my team and I inform the scrum master about the status of the tasks we are working on and, yes ..boring part ends here!
My whole day is buzzing with technical discussions, designs and developments. My work starts from understanding the functional requirement from the stakeholders, holding discussions with Product owners and business analyst to deep dive into the ask and filter out the scope which could be mapped to actual implementation.
We work in Agile framework so it is vital to commit to right amount of work to customer and meet the delivery deadlines.

Invenics carries the torch proudly of being an employee friendly organization.
