What does your typical day look like?

I start my mornings slowly, reviewing the previous day’s work, chatting with teammates, and making coffee. Lunch time is flexible, but I spend the core of my day between focused coding sessions and meetings. Some days I’m collaborating with our research team, other days I’m discussing design concepts or aligning on feature releases with the team.
