“What does your mom think you do at work?” Our team answers!

Tomorrow’s Mother’s Day! And to celebrate, we thought we’d go the funny route. 

When wracking our brains about how to celebrate some of the most important women in our lives, we couldn’t think of any better way than through a little laughter. And that brings us to our prompt that inspired this article: What does your mom think you do at work? Let’s face it, how many moms really get it when you say “I’m a software engineer working remotely for an audio tech company…” Well, we wanted to find out for ourselves. So we asked our team at Voicemod to share. The responses? A range of hilarious to downright adorable. But don’t let us tell you! See for yourself. 

 

From marketers to engineers to product managers, take a look at what some of our employees’ moms think they do for work:

What does your mom think you do at work?
“She thinks that I work for Google, Microsoft, Samsung, and Amazon, and always blames me for every error she has while using Android, Windows, her TV, or Amazon.”

Belén Montes
What does your mom think you do at work?
“My mother thinks my job consists of playing computer games. She says it’s not possible for me to work on testing sounds and setting voices. After many attempts to explain my work, when I tell her that I have a release, she asks me if ‘the little buttons’ (Stream Deck) went well. Hey, she tries.”

What does your mom think you do at work?
“My mom actually showed real curiosity when she saw my video editing work. Even though she didn’t always understand the content (video game guides), she tried to push me to learn how to get better and turn it into a profitable job. She just wanted to see me succeed and use my time for good :)”

What does your mom think you do at work?
“Well, I don’t really have a good story for my mom. But my grandma on the other hand… She does her best to try and understand what I do. But every time I finish explaining my job to her and how I’m able to work remotely, she never fails to ask the exact same question: And do you get paid to do this?”

What does your mom think you do at work?
“In her mind, I create intelligent robots or humanoids to solve music thingies that she doesn’t care about, but that sound nerdy and complex.”

What does your mom think you do at work?
“I asked my mother, and she told me, ‘You work for a company that manages game interfaces.’ When I asked her if she knows what I do specifically, she said ‘You design.’ I’m an Engineering Manager…”

We have to say, it doesn’t get much better than that 😂  And hey, at the end of the day, each and every one of them tries. Thanks to our Voicemod team–and their mothers–for the laughs!
