Your average day in AdvancedSeller

First, you check in with the team and any messages that might be left for you while asleep. You check if there are any new issues, record and prioritise them over the current planned work. You then give an update on progress with the current task, any problem that might either be a dependency on your current work or prevent you from getting it done. 

Then you go and check Trello to check-up on progress on pending tasks. Check with your team mates that they know what to do and that they are aware of the current priorities. 

Then when all management stuff is done you checkout the GIT Repo to local and start working on the task pending for yourself. 

We work in weekly or fortnightly sprints to protect our developers from constantly changing requirements. So when a sprint is planned a dev knows what to do for the next week or 2 weeks.
