Welcome, Oliver, Vincentas, and Fabian!
The Airtame team keeps growing and growing. Our 3 newest Airtamers are part of the teams building the customer experience. Meet 🇩🇰 Oliver from Sales, 🇱🇹 Vincentas from Support, and 🇩🇪 Fabian from Marketing.
What role are you filling at Airtame?
Oliver: Account Manager - with a focus on our European Customers
Vincentas: I will be working with our customer support.
Fabian: I will mostly handle demo calls that can be booked on our website as well as communication with our German-speaking customers.
How did you find out about Airtame and why did you choose to apply?
Oliver: I have been following Airtame for quite a while prior to applying and have a good friend who is still working here. So I learned a lot about the culture and product through him and told him that whenever there was an opening he had to let me know and here I am :)
Vincentas: I knew the device for some time now and used it before. I really liked it and therefore was excited to see the job ad. I wanted to work with a product that I believe in so it was a no-brainer to apply here.
Fabian: I found the job ad on Graduateland and immediately liked the product as I see a huge potential for it by making work in general and specifically meetings more effective. Furthermore, I checked out Airtame on Youtube and immediately liked the extremely enthusiastic and dynamic atmosphere of the team.
Anything weird? Odd habits, unique interests, a funny story?
Oliver: I have the first dollar I ever earned in my wallet. I won it from my dad in Sears Tower - Chicago in 1998 in a bet regarding if my ears would pop going up the elevator to the top floor.
And meditation - I practice it 40 min daily. It helps me to stay on top of things and see things from a different perspective.
Vincentas: Lithuanians are known to be superstitious. I am not an exception: always tie my left shoe first and don’t whistle inside the house for the sake of good luck. And I do love to eat smoked pig ears.
Fabian: I try to learn at least a sentence or two whenever I meet someone who speaks a different language than I do - whatever that person wants to tell me.
What’s your background?
Oliver: I graduated in January with a bachelor’s in International Sales and Marketing Management from CPH Business in Copenhagen. I have previously been working in different startups and mostly done marketing, PR, and sales.
Vincentas: I have a very diverse background. My mom is from Estonia, my dad is from Lithuania. I was born in Russia. I have been living in Denmark for 6 years now. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Economics and Business Administration here. I mostly worked with account management and sales in various industries.
Fabian: I graduated from the German Business School WHU in 2015 with a Bachelor’s in International Business Administration and am currently working on my Master’s in Innovation and Business Development at Copenhagen Business School here in lovely Copenhagen.
Where did you work before?
Oliver: During my schooling, I have worked/interned for a couple of startups in Denmark, the US, and South Africa. In all of my internships, I have had focus on business development, PR, sales and marketing.
Vincentas: I worked in various industries and various companies. Tourism, Retail, Flower export, Event management, Advertising, Sports - you name it. I enjoyed experiencing different sectors and different cultures.
Fabian: After my Bachelor’s and before moving to Copenhagen, I worked for the German startup HomeToGo in Berlin, mostly doing Business Development and special projects. Before that, I did an internship at the Digital & Adjacent division of the German Media company ProSieben Sat.1 in Munich, developing a tracking system for a new project.
How do you spend your free time?
Oliver: Mostly on travelling - I really like exploring new countries and cultures - in addition to that I am planning on seeing the 7 wonders of the world before I turn 30. I read a lot as well.
I also spend a lot of time trying new things - I love figuring out how things work and how to make them better.
Vincentas: I love playing basketball (even worked as a coach) and enjoy watching different sports. I also enjoy reading (my wife says I am eating books). I collect old school video gaming consoles and enjoy using them. I also love traveling. Everywhere!
Fabian: Apart from studying and working I like to spend time with my friends from university and enjoy the student life. Additionally, I make sure not to miss the games of my favourite football club 1.FC Köln.
What gets you up in the morning? What motivates you?
Oliver: The fear of being average mostly and the possibility to grow and become the best version of myself.
Vincentas: Curiosity. I am open to what the day brings me.
Fabian: I listen to a radio channel from my home region for 30 minutes every morning. It has become a ritual regardless of where I am at the moment and brings me up to speed.
Oliver, this one is just for you: If you were an animal, what would you be?
Probably a dolphin. 🐬 They are intelligent and don’t take themselves too seriously and they like to play around. They are also pretty creative and like to explore things.
Vincentas, this one is just for you: How do you take your coffee?
Small, strong, black, no sugar. The Italian way. ☕️ 😉
Fabian, this one is just for you: What’s your first impression of the Airtame team so far (yes, we’re fishing for compliments ;))?
I’ve never received so many high-fives in just one week. Couldn’t have asked for a more positive welcome. ✋
