"A day in the life" of a Tech worker

Bridget Community Manager Aug 24, 2020

Hi everyone! 

Hope you had restful weekends. Every Monday, I like to make a big to-do list of tasks I need to knock out. Sometimes, when I'm really busy, I'll even map out each day, even penciling in time for a walk or for lunch. And being the nosy person I am, I want to know what "a day in the life" looks like you YOU!

Feel free to go into as much or as little detail as you'd like! This can be specific to the routine of a Tech worker, or can follow you on a day off :). 

Here's a "day in the life" of me, Bridget:

Wake up

Go swimming (when CA wildfires aren't making the air too smoky)

Log on to Slack to check in

Daily standup for a Customer Experience Project I'm working on

Log on to Community to see what's going on

Focused work knocking off small tasks from my to-do

Make espresso

Joke around on Slack with the Community team 

Focused work writing Confluence blog (for example)

More meetings

Log off

Make dinner

Mountain Bike / Run / Watch TV if it's too smoky outside!

@Bridget - my days blur together, but are generally like:


  • Make coffee ☕
  • Drink coffee
  • Fight any (digital) fires, if present
  • If it's early, I help folks on Atlassian Community
  • Daily team standup
  • Handle my day's tasks and meetings
  • Log off


  • Find a delicious place for takeout - I shop local when I can (I'm in NYC!) 🗽
  • Help folks on Community
  • Read (research, professional development, or fun reading)
  • Crash 💤

Ha, that's only if I get up early enough! But in the evenings it's always interesting to see what's going on in this neck of the internet. 🎄

Sáng tôi dậy sớm, tập thể dục, rồi đi làm, tối về làm chút việc nhà, chơi với con, rồi đi ngủ, ngày nào chũng thế

I should probably exercise 😅

Tôi có lẽ nên tập thể dục 😅
