Workflow with Sarah Goff-Dupont, Principal Writer at Atlassian

In this edition of Workflow, we have Atlassian Principal Writer, Sarah Goff-Dupont, talking about how she likes her men (whoops I mean coffee) and standing desk treadmill.

Describe what you do: I’m a writer for Work Life by Atlassian, focusing on topics related to remote work, team collaboration, and personal productivity. That’s my day job, anyway. I’m also a damn fine cook, if I do say so myself.

How do you like your coffee: Hot, tan, and sweet – like my men. (Kidding!) (A little.)

Device(s) you use: 13″ MacBook Pro and a Google Pixel 3 for work. My trusty ol’ Kindle for me-time.

Describe your working style in one sentence: In terms of schedule, I’m almost pathologically structured, with blocks of time for deep work in the morning and time for meetings in the afternoons. In terms of collaboration, I’m a fan of free-flowing communication and never hesitate to partner with people from other teams or departments.

What does your workspace look like: I’m a neat-freak and my workspace is no exception. I have a home office with lovely woodwork, a standing desk, and a treadmill pad underneath it that I walk on for about half my day. On my desk are my laptop, a notebook, my water glass, a small antique globe, and a Ruth Bader Ginsberg action figure.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: Our local classical music station is my go-to. As a writer, I can’t have words coming in my ears at the same time I’m trying to put words on a page.

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My former colleague and all-around badass lady, Carilu Dietrich.
