Fluido’s Sales Manager Hannele Koivu says that amazing colleagues are one of the best benefits of her job. ”The team we have here at Fluido is a huge asset that one sometimes takes for granted. It is a big thing to be part of this group”, Hannele says. Hannele has good insight in what working at Fluido (and with Fluidians) is like as she has worked for the company since October 2011. Good atmosphere among the Fluido crew repeats in the conversation: “I hope I’ve made lasting friendships here”.
Hannele has strong background in business and has previously worked for companies like Dun & Bradstreet and Materna. As a Sales Manager she is responsible for the sales in Finland. “I’m social and like working with customers. It is nice to meet people and get cooperation going. The best thing is when I see that the solution proves to be perfect for the customer.”
Fluido is one of the leading Salesforce partners in the Nordics. Working closely with the software has its benefits and challenges. “Keeping yourself up-to-date of the product is one of the challenges of this job. At the same time it is a good thing because it means the system is being updated all the time. One just needs to keep one’s eyes and ears open”, Hannele describes her attitude towards change that is characteristic for the business.
Hannele says working with cloud technology is exciting. ”I wouldn’t want to think that I came to Fluido at the peak of my career but I want to grow and develop myself further together with Fluido and Salesforce”, Hannele desbribes her goals. “In this job I learn something new every day. No day is similar with the previous one.”
Hannele feels that Fluido is a reputable employer with good benefits. People in the workplace trust each other and hierarchy is low - anyone can go and ask a colleague for help or for lunch company or just chat around the coffee machine.
It is also essential to be able to relax outside working hours. “It is an important skill to not think about work when at home. I’ve promised myself that I stay at the office as long as the day’s work is done. Then when at home I can concentrate on other things.” Hannele owns three dogs (one of them can be seen in the picture together with her) and is an active supporter of the ice hockey club HIFK.
For Hannele the future looks “cloudy”. ”I see interesting future challenges and need for special kind of expertise in the cloud computing field. I’m happy that I can be part of Fluido’s story”, she says and smiles.
