This week on Meet Mortech we want to introduce you all to our Senior Manager of Product Management, Gowri Sivanathan!
Favorite part of the job: The people. Being in product management, I engage with stakeholders, engineers and customers often. I love working cross-functionally.
Favorite things to do on days off: Read, cook, evening walks and travel. I cannot wait to resume travel once again!
Speaking of travel, favorite places to visit include: Canada, Switzerland, New Zealand (on my wish-list). I prefer spending my time in the wilderness - mountains, greenery, lakes - over busy towns/crowded tourist spots. Not much of a beach person though, given I cannot swim (fun fact).
Interesting fact: I have a technical background (MS in Computer Science) but never held a formal engineering job. I got into Product Management by chance and love being in the midst of it all, which I believe is my sweet spot.
Favorite time of the year: December, love the holiday spirit it brings!
Family life: We are a family of four. I live in Texas with my husband, our son, and our dog. My family, including parents and sibling, are all back in India and I visit them during the holidays.
