What advice do you have for inspiring tech and telematics professionals?
Be ready to face challenges and learn a lot of new things. Try, then fail, then try again and win. Be open-minded and don’t ever be afraid to ask questions even if you think they are stupid.
What do you love outside of work?
I love music and learn a lot about how it works. I play guitar, listen to various genres of music, and also created a few tracks and even songs with my friends.
I also love to learn a lot about movies, how it is created behind the scenes, special effects and the work of stuntmen, etc.
In my free time, I play video games with my friends, walk a lot when the weather is sunny and visit the gym.
What are some things you have enjoyed learning or your favorite accomplishments?
I like to learn new things about our products from a technical standpoint, talking a lot with our technical team so I could share more information with our potential and existing customers by myself. I also like to learn new approaches in sales so I am always open to books and articles and recommendations related to this topic.
Right after I finished university I moved to Moscow from Siberia alone which is a nice accomplishment. I managed to stay here, started to travel, made a lot of friends, and gained a lot of knowledge and skills in sales. And also music, I found a lot of talented people to work with!
