Reasons to work at Cocone（Item delivery Hiromi Yamakawa)

What does sensibility mean to you?
I think it is a manifestation of my past experiences, so I see, eat, and experience good things.
If you are interested in many things, it will be broad; if you focus on one thing, it will be narrow but deep.
I naturally challenge myself to try things that interest me, but even if I don’t think it’s right for me, I’ll just look into it.
By doing so, I will be able to output more things, so I would like to challenge myself in various ways and continue to refine my sensitivity to the end. I also believe that by sharing good things, other members’ sensitivities will be refined together.
Why did you join Cocone?
I came across Cocone in search of a job that would allow me to be involved in design while also being flexible in my lifestyle. I first joined the company as a CX (so-called CS) member. I joined the company as a CX (CS) member because I wanted to work with customers to understand what we were making at Cocone, and then, once I had settled down to raise my children, I wanted to be involved in design. After a while, I changed my job title because they wanted me to help with delivery, which is what I am in charge of now.
I became a full-time employee through an in-house challenge to become a full-time employee from a part-time position. The appeal of this system was that I could use the childcare free time system flexibly to pick up and drop off my child, or when I was sick.
This is the task of delivery. This work involves exporting the finished design into a format that works on the application, and managing and adjusting it so that it can be delivered properly to the customer. Specifically, in order for the designers to concentrate on production, I manage the data such as thumbnails and item names that accompany the items, and consult with the development team on areas where specifications can be improved. This work is similar to general support for designers.
About the team you belong to
My job allows me to come into contact with the designs of many members, and I think I am working with amazing people because they always come up with wonderful designs. As we continue to produce many items every month, I feel the hard work of the design team, which continues to produce a variety of ideas every day and never rests its hands, and I want to support them as much as I can.
Each week we share members’ favorites and recommendations in a Slack exchange window, so I look forward to learning what inspires and interests you.
What we value in our work
Although the delivery process is unspectacular, it is the final checkpoint before the item is delivered to the customer, so we take great care to ensure that we deliver a good product. We can find and fix mistakes or defects that the designer did not notice during production beforehand, and share them with the designer so that the item and the way it is produced can be better. I would like to work with daily noticing in order to create better designs. I believe that the accumulation of small realizations will improve the company as a whole.
Attraction of Cocone
Many of the members are kind and warm, so I think it is easy to consult with them when I have problems at work. There are also many women and some members have children like myself, so I am able to consult with senior mothers in this regard and they are very understanding of my work. In order to support employees’ health and lifestyle, healthy menus are offered at the deli, gyms are available to improve physical strength, and massages are available to relieve stiffness caused by sitting all the time.
