PayPay shifted to a “new workstyle” last September, allowing “Work from Anywhere, at Anytime” (WFA). Nearly six months after its launch, a number of issues associated with this work style have become apparent, and for this reason, we have decided to start a new series of articles featuring WFA to offer insight into solving the challenges of working remotely by sharing some creative and specific practices our colleagues have adopted.
This time, we have Takashi Nishimura, PayPay’s corporate page designer who joined PayPay after WFA has implemented talks about his WFA life in Nara.
What I feel about using WFA
This is important, that’s why I repeat but living in Nara and to work for Tokyo office is super great.
Because my role is to design PayPay’s corporate pages, such as, PayPay Inside-Out, Careers and Press Release pages, I sometime need to go to the office in Kamiyacho to shoot photos and videos of people when we are allowed.
What I found when I joined PayPay is that it is a really fast-paced company.
Also, there are many excellent colleagues around me, so I am spending my days in friendly competition while being inspired.
I am proud to be working as a designer at PayPay surrounded by such colleagues.
I’ve always dreamed of working in Tokyo, but now I think I’ve found a better way to work.
As a designer, I am usually on the side of communication, but this time I looked at “me and WFA” from the perspective of the people involved.
If it weren’t for WFA, I wouldn’t have joined PayPay myself.
The speed at PayPay is like a roller coaster.
Doing quality work on a daily basis while not losing sight of myself is what I wanted and what I will continue to challenge myself to do.
At the end of this article, I would like to mention that what supports me is above all the place where I was born and raised, Nara, and my precious family members.
