Why Work at Cocone (Chie Takano, Planner)
※This article is machine translated.
What does sensibility mean to you?
We receive both good and bad feedback for a single service. This is because everyone from the creator to the receiver has different sensibilities.
And I believe that sensitivity is affected a little by the environment in which a person is placed and the feelings he or she is experiencing at the time. I hope that the sensibility built up in the environment and feelings of customers enjoying what they like to do and the sensibility built up in the environment where we create our services while thinking about our customers overlap even a little, and that they will feel more love for Cocone’s services.
Why did you join Cocone?
I have been involved in avatar apps (i.e., those with CCP service elements) since my last job. As a planner, I feel that the interesting thing about CCP service is that I can think about things in a wide range of areas, such as thinking about how to sell clothes in the app or creating a place for communication. Also, since we consider planning from various angles on a daily basis, it broadens my scope of defense.
With that in mind, when I realized that I liked CCP services and wanted to continue to be involved in them, I decided to move to Cocone because I felt that it was a company that had CCP services that would continue to grow and where I could work with discretion in the future.
I belong to a division that produces new services, and my main job is to examine and formulate specifications for each function that customers actually touch, and to direct the development of these services while communicating frequently with designers and engineers.
Of course, I also discuss and organize the world view of the service with other staff members as well as the specifications. In addition, although I am called a planner, I also take on the role of a PM who manages the development schedule. Since this is a new service, I am still the only planner, so I feel that I am entrusted with a lot of things on a daily basis.
About the team you belong to
Currently, I am a member of a team working on a new project that is challenging 3D for the first time in Cocone. The planner is not the only one who creates the product, as this is a way of creating things that permeates not only his/her team but also all of Cocone. By incorporating the perspectives of other professionals, we can of course develop more efficiently, but what is most important is that both designers and developers love creating services as a member of Cocone. I believe that we are all working together as a team to create the form we want to achieve, and we are able to bring it closer to reality.
The service team at Cocone has a planner on the same team as the designers and developers who are working together on development so that development can be focused. Therefore, I feel that we are able to discuss specifications very closely with each other.
What we value in our work
In planning and specifications, I try to strongly consider how customers will feel and what kind of actions they will want to take.
Since I am currently in charge of a new service, I don’t have any customers in front of me until its release, but I search the SNS of customers who enjoy Cocone’s services Pokecolo and Livly Island every day and try to actively get in touch with the feelings of customers who love our services. I try not to be too production-oriented.
Attraction of Cocone
Of course, it is attractive that there are only kind people gathered in the system and facilities that allow you to make a living in the company, but I was very impressed by what the chairman (founder) said about CCP business as the best company.It’s rare to work in a top position in any field, so I think it’s very attractive to have the experience of working at your discretion.
