Name: Katrina Tomita
Position: Senior Account Manager / Senior Developer
Hometowns: Manila, Philippines and Tokyo, Japan
Hobbies: cooking, shopping and kickin’ ass

Katrina joined FunkyCorp nine years ago, making a switch from creating back-end software for major Japanese banks that no one saw, to engineering consumer-facing web products that wow clients, consumers and coworkers.
She loves the fact that every day is different, and she can bring her bunny Gonta to work (which we also love). As a female in the male-dominated field of tech since she was 18, she can still sense people’s surprise at meeting a young woman in a senior position, and she enjoys challenging their expectations. Since she moved into a senior account manager role, Katrina has also become a valuable mentor for the team, solving problems with a blend of logic and creative thinking.
Around the office, she’s known for her sense of humor, no BS attitude and her awesome collection of T-shirts. When she needs a break from the screen, you’ll find her punching her stress away to high energy club music at B-Monster, the cult cardio boxing gym up the road from FunkyCorp HQ.
Her other obsession is traveling to far flung destinations. Next up? “Morocco, without a doubt. It’s calling me.”
