“Be bold and dare! Dare to take on responsibility and take the lead just that little bit more.“
Could you introduce yourself and tell us about your professional background?
I am Jessica Rodrigues and I am co-managing the digital agency World Of Digits Paris with my extraordinary partner and friend Lucie Levy. I’ve been working for 6 years in fast growing companies in the IT and digital sector before joining the Positive Thinking Company 2 years ago. I met my teammate at our business school in Paris and we’ve been sharing our projects and ideas since then – crazy ideas that led us to some failures, successes, many laughs and new friends.
What’s your opinion on the fact that the digital sector is not very feminized?
Actually, at WOD Paris we reverse the trend: 56% of our coworkers are women. We pay attention to male-female parity but first we make sure to hire the best, no matter the gender or ethnical background. We are glad to attract equally male and female talented people.
What advice would you give to any women interested in a career in IT?
Be bold and dare! Dare to take on responsibility and take the lead just that little bit more.
How would you define the corporate culture at PTC?
Our corporate culture can be summed up in one word: collaboration. Our ecosystem fosters communication at all levels and encourages people to share knowledge and good vibes. I joined PTC in 2018 to build a new brand in Paris. Starting a new business and exploring is different when you’re with a tribe. It encourages initiative and creativity, but can also shift to conflicts, all the more in such a competitive market. PTC ecosystem focus on bringing people together, encouraging everyone to achieve a joint mission. It can be challenging but I’ve seen our corporate culture flourish even more the past 2 years and witnessed all the positive effects of the sense of belonging.
Could you name an inspirational person that you’d like to have dinner with?
I would love to have dinner with Anthony Tjan and Michelle Obama.Back
