Tell us about your journey. Why advertising and technology?
I joined Mediaocean with an educational background, having previously worked at a CAD firm designing and implementing their training curriculum.
In what ways has working at Mediaocean challenged you and enabled you to grow?
The breadth of Mediaocean’s product offering requires many different approaches to learning. You have to be extremely flexible in creating solutions that are often outside of the ‘box’. That, combined with Mediaocean’s regular software updates, means the content is constantly evolving.
What do you enjoy most about working at Mediaocean?
I work with many talented people across a host of disciplines. One day I can be working with developers on some code, the next I could be discussing initiatives with the accounts team. No two days are the same.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years and what role does Mediaocean play in helping you get there?
Our self-service support offering continues to grow at Mediaocean, and I would like to continue to be a part of that, along with the new challenges that the company’s global expansion initiatives are creating.
What’s your favorite employee perk at Mediaocean?
The breakfast in the mornings is fantastic. You can’t beat a cinnamon bagel (thanks, Tony).
Coffee or tea?
