How does a day in the life of a Content Editor at FXStreet look?
Electrifying! The first thi
ng that I look for in the morning are the mails from our Editor-in-Chief Ivan about reports (my lifeline in FXStreet). He never fails to send them even if he is on a holiday (he is a bit workaholic I guess, but I love it 😄). Subsequently, I check our economic calendar to know what’s in store for the day and I publish reports in our Analysis section.
Today we want to present you one of our department managers. Javi, FXStreet’s CTO, joined our team in September 2014 taking the responsibility of leading the IT department. Find out how working at FXStreet is for him and why sport and work play two important roles in his life.

How does a day in the life of the CTO at FXStreet look?
Exciting! The good thing about my position is that I can do a little bit of everything: developing software (it’s my true passion), making decisions about the technical strategy that the company needs to follow and trying to keep the team happy and motivated every day.
Last Sunday, nine brave members of our team participated in a 40 km fundraising walk in Barcelona organized by the Children’s Hospital Sant Joan de Déu.
For every kilometer walked by one team member, FXStreet would donate 5€ to the organizer of the event, a leading medical hospital for childhood and adolescence that helps the most vulnerable people.

How does a day in the life of the Indonesian Site Team Leader at FXStreet look?
Besides doing my job, I’m pretty busy being a mother of two kids. I woke up at 5 AM to prepare my kids before going to school and I make breakfast. At 6:30 AM I start reading my email. Afterwards, I check our economic calendar, our charts and I look the latest updates from the English site of FXStreet. Then, I start translating the news and reports with my team and I update our Indonesian social media channel. I organize my tasks and shift with my team to manage my time and to take my break on time to pick up my kids from school. The main thing is that I have to make sure that the Indonesian website is well updated.

When I arrive at the office I turn on the computer and I check the emails. I have breakfast in front of it and I drink a hot tea. Then, I look what tasks I have to do and the priority of them. Sometimes I go to several meetings but not every day. Each day is different because I design a lot of things: for social media, FXStreet campaigns, for our partners, videos, photography, web design, newsletters and so on. So every day is a new day 🙂 Continue reading Meet Marina, FXStreet’s Designer

Then, I come to my desk to check emails for urgent issues and to watch the videos we did overnight. Usually, I have to deal with external speakers to find different ways to improve our videos, to create new shows and to plan the coverage that we will have in the near future.
