In the process of growth that we at Smartway are embarking on, both resources and people are essential for fully realizing our goals and staying true to our north star. It’s the ideas, dedication, and the right match with their personalities that drive Smartway’s innovative spirit.

Today, we want to introduce you to these five unique personalities from across Italy through a mini-interview consisting of three insightful questions. In their responses, they reveal who they are in life and what they can bring to the Smartway team. Let’s dive into their world and understand how each one of them stands as a pillar in our path to innovation and success.

Sylvain Faure – Frontend developer

Which item would you bring with you on an offsite and why?
I’d bring hiking boots because adventure can pop up anywhere. They’re perfect for unexpected paths and keep me comfortable on any terrain.

What is your superpower and how do you use it to make a difference at Smartway?
My superpower? Super Calm! I can keep my cool in the most stressful situations, bringing calm and clarity when it’s needed most.

What do you do when you turn off your computer?
Off the clock, I’m either at concerts, reading books, or hiking in the mountains. These activities are my ideal way to relax and recharge.

Alessia Cerbone – Chief of Staff

Which item would you bring with you on an offsite and why?
A pair of comfy shoes! Thanks to that, you’re not just prepared for the journey; you’re ensuring a more enjoyable and immersive experience in every step you take.

What is your superpower and how do you use it to make a difference at Smartway?
I’m very tenacious, especially when it comes to nudging others. It’s going to be super useful in sprint reviews. A little persistence can go a long way in keeping things on track.

What do you do when you turn off your computer?
I love cooking, reading about tech, trying new sports, and making playlists for those times when I can’t decide what to listen to. These activities keep me creative and connected to my passions.

Martina Monkasch – Product Designer

Which item would you bring with you on an offsite and why?
A portable speaker, because any moment is a good time for a group dance. Whether it’s breaking out into ‘El Meneaito’ or any other tune, it’s all about creating those spontaneous moments of joy and togetherness.

What is your superpower and how do you use it to make a difference at Smartway?
I’m a bundle of positive energy and joy, always ready to electrify every offsite. My enthusiasm is contagious, and I love bringing that spark to every event.

What do you do when you turn off your computer?
Singing, having aperitifs with friends, planning trips, or exploring every corner of my new city. These are the ways I love spending my free time, enjoying life’s simple pleasures.

Sara Pinello – Head of Operations

Which item would you bring with you on an offsite and why?
A power bank to ensure my phone is always charged. There are so many moments to capture in photos or videos during offsites, and I don’t want to miss a single one! It’s all about preserving those memories, whether it’s a stunning view, a team-building activity, or just spontaneous fun.

What is your superpower and how do you use it to make a difference at Smartway?
I’m super organized. I love paying attention to details and bringing order where it’s needed! At Smartway, I’ll help streamline processes and ensure things happen flawlessly, offering more unforgettable experiences. 

What do you do when you turn off your computer?
I enjoy long mountain walks with my dog, practicing yoga, and belting out songs at live concerts – preferably not all at the same time! These activities are my way of reconnecting with nature, finding my inner peace, and just letting loose and having a blast.

Flavio Minelli – Digital Marketing Specialist

Which item would you bring with you on an offsite and why?
A lanyard for my smartphone. It’s incredibly useful, especially on offsites. It’s super handy for keeping the offsite map app always at the ready, or to snap a pic of a great moment in a flash.

What is your superpower and how do you use it to make a difference at Smartway?
I like to think of my superpower as being the glue that holds the team together. Just like every superhero has their own squad, my thing is keeping the team united so we win together. 

What do you do when you turn off your computer?
Once the computer is off, it’s game time, literally! Group games, board games, you name it. But that’s not all – I’m on a personal quest to sample as many different types of pizzas as possible. Sometimes I like to customize things, whatever pops into my head.
