Equiem's product team sits at the nexus between our products and our clients, working tirelessly to ensure our solutions are the ones our partners need. This week, we'd like to introduce Senior Business Analyst and Iteration Manager Ray Schmidt.

Our product team features a broad range of experts, comprising Product Managers, Analysts, Solutions Managers, and more. Equiem's goal is to create a comprehensive product suite that can solve all of our many problems  and to keep it simple. That's harder than it sounds, but a team packed with decades of collective experience is how we get the job done.

Ray Schmidt is our Senior Business Analyst and Iteration Manager. It's a big title, but to hear Ray talk about it, it simply boils down to listening to our clients and helping them solve their problems. 

Oh, and if you're not up to date on our blog, you should know that this is just the latest in our running series of Product Team profiles. Once you've gotten to know Ray, make sure to read our profiles of Helene, Chet, Andrew, and Chief Product Officer David.

But now, let's meet Ray!

What exactly does your job involve?

"My job is really about listening to the clients  both internal and external  to understand their pain points. Then, I take this information and convert it into requirements. 

"After that, it's my job to work closely with the developers, building a solution that really makes our clients smile when we deliver the product to them."

What goal guides you at Equiem?

"To deliver a product that the customer is excited to use. And not just that... a product they're excited to tell others about!"

What do you enjoy most about your job?

"My favourite part of working at Equiem is the challenge. I thrive when I'm continually challenged to deliver a great product for our clients.

"The effort is made even more meaningful by the fact that I share it with a brilliant team. Working alongside great people  whether they're on the customer side of things or behind the scenes  makes this work special."

So, what are the things that excite you when you're off the clock?

"I really enjoy travelling, especially around Australia. And I love to incorporate my passion for photography by trying to find the perfect landscape shot.

"I also love woodwork and converting reclaimed timber into furniture. And when it comes to sport, I always love a round of golf."
