Before joining the tech startup world, I spent several years in the non-profit sector, building communities, being in charge of team management, fundraising, and other operational fields. I was always driven by working in a young organisation which required the set up of different processes and bringing ideas to reality.
I found myself in this field, because it allows me to combine several of my strengths and passions: communication and analysis, while working closely with the developers team to solve quite technical problems.
So many things! TOP5:
– Starting from scratch and creating new things
– Problem solving. The more unusual and complex, the better!
– Research. I love experimentation and analysis.
– Impact. I often ask myself what kind of impact my work has, and who will benefit from the results of my work.
– Dynamics – working in a startup environment requires a lot of flexibility but it never gets boring.
First of all, respect and honestly care about your customers. Then, be as effective as possible.
Try not to mix-up this order.
As simple as that sounds, it takes a lot of work to establish such culture in the company: it’s crucial to have great people in your support team, have the right tools, build a system where you can quickly change, fix and adapt your product features according to the customers’ needs.
I strongly believe in the company’s mission and the fact that by using blockchain you can tackle one of the most important issues in e-commerce – online trust and reputation. When I first met the team, I was impressed by their professionalism, ambition and devotion, and I understood right away that this is the place where I want to be.
Several weeks ago we had a local newspaper write an article about Monetha and they’ve sent over a photographer to take a few pictures of the founders. The whole photoshoot was so awkward… The photographer was asking them to pose in a funny “youthful” way and asking some ridiculous and way-too-personal questions (even hitting on the founders!). Everyone in the team was trying to keep-it-cool and pretend not to notice it, but really, we were just chatting online and laughing to tears.
