Riikka, why did you decide to join Feelingstream?
I was looking for a new job and I saw that Terje wrote on Facebook that they are looking for analysts. There were a lot of different requirements for an analyst and out of all those requirements I only know Finnish, I didn’t know anything about Python or about analytics at all. Still, I thought that well, I don’t have anything to lose, let’s try. Terje asked me for a job interview and we discussed my work background and I was not hired as an analyst, but I was hired! Now I am taking care of our customers and sales at Feelingstream.
Give us a bit of your background…
I am actually from Finland, but I have lived in Estonia for almost 4 years for now. My work background is pretty various, during high school I worked in a kindergarten, I have also worked as a personal assistant. When I moved to Estonia I got a job as a sales manager in a production company, that is what I did before I found Feelingstream.
During my free time I am studying business management at EBS and I am hopefully going to graduate in spring.
What are your first impressions at Feelingstream?
Working in Feelingstream is super cool! I wake up every morning happily thinking about what I am going to learn today. I have worked in FS for almost two months and I have already learned so many new things! I really like my co-workers and our working environment. My co-workers are really helpful and supportive. If I am stuck with some task I can always be sure there are people who will help me. I am really grateful that I have got so cool co-workers!
Also, I really like that there is a lot of different things to do, every day is different! There is no opportunity to get bored when working at Feelingstream!
Favorite thing to do…
