'SalesScreen appealed to me as a company that provides opportunities for growth and that cultivates an awesome company culture. I think a positive work environment is extremely important, and SalesScreen embraces that concept – both in regards to their employees and the company as a whole.'
Trondheim, Norway — Victoria brings a sense of creativity and an eagerness to learn to the SalesScreen team.
Dave: What is your work education/work background?
Victoria: I attended the University of Denver where I studied marketing, events and tourism and ultimately graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. My work background is primarily marketing, graphic design and customer service.
Dave: What are some of your hobbies?
Victoria: Anything active and outdoors! Hiking, yoga and snowboarding are some of my favorites. I like to travel and experience new cultures - a big one on my bucket list is snowboarding in Japan. I also enjoy cooking. Making dinner while enjoying a glass of red wine and a good tv show is an ideal night for me :)
Dave: Why did you choose to work for SalesScreen?
Victoria: SalesScreen appealed to me as a company that provides opportunities for growth and that cultivates an awesome company culture. I think a positive work environment is extremely important, and SalesScreen embraces that concept – both in regards to their employees and the company as a whole. I am looking forward to learning and working with a team of passionate and fun people!
Dave: What are your expectations of working here?
Victoria: I expect that I will learn a lot, take on new challenges and become a part of a team. I hope to build on my current skills and to learn as much as I possibly can. I am also excited to be a part of a talented team with a “work hard, play hard” mindset. The team aspect is something really valuable to me because since moving to Norway I have primarily worked from home, and that can be very isolating. It is also easy to feel isolated and disconnected as an expat, so I enjoy that the SalesScreen team is international, yet with strong Norwegian roots.
Dave: What unique qualities or skills do you bring to the table?
Victoria: I feel that I am a creative person, but in a sort of structured and organized way. I am solution-oriented and enjoy the sense of accomplishment when you can solve a problem for someone and/or improve the current situation. Additionally, I am a good listener and enjoy connecting with people, both professionally and personally.
Dave: Have you ever worked for a startup? Are you excited about it?
Victoria: Yes I have! When I first moved to Norway a few years ago, I assisted with the start-up of a tourism company. I have also done some marketing and graphic design work for a local Trondheim startup. My previous experiences working with startups were both challenging and rewarding. I am definitely excited about joining another startup – and one that is in a different stage of growth than the previous ones I helped with.
Dave: Describe your personality.
Victoria: Happy. Extroverted introvert. Kind. Intuitive. Even-keeled. A little weird.
Dave: What's your favorite quote?
Victoria: “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light” – J.K. Rowling
