#WeAreArity Wednesday: Yomara Ibarra
When my friend asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I do everything, no joke! Get pulled in all different directions daily. But really, I am here to make Amit’s life a little less crazy, so with that comes everything in supporting him and my engineering team!
In your own words, what is Arity?
An amazing company that strives to make transportation safer and smarter with the expertise from driven and dedicated colleagues working together!
What is your work for home set up like?
I have a desk in my bedroom facing the window so I get the natural light throughout my day with dual monitors. I also have a picture of my dog child (Olde English Bulldog – Kaia and god child (Wyatt). Occasional snack or two – sweet / sour snake gummy’s. All while I have alexa playing edm music mostly, with some hip-hop/oldies/Spanish throwbacks mixed in there too!
We all commuted into the office prior to COVID, how are you spending the extra time?
I continue to have a schedule for myself because my dog’s internal clock hasn’t adjusted, so we are up at 6:30am for a walk! Then with the extra time I go to the gym or HotWorx classes.
Most people don’t know I…
Am a sneakerhead, I love shoes
The theme song of my life is…
The Nights by Avicci
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Yes- I’ve been in a Tesla before, while it was nerve wrecking to trust the car, it was amazing to see how far we’ve come with car that now have the potential to self-drive! Never thought I would be in a self-driving car in my lifetime.
