“When I got the chance to join Fluido four years ago, it was a no brainer for me as I wanted to work in this industry and in a close relationship with the customers”, Antti tells.

 

Antti Turunen doesn’t have the most typical background for an employee of an IT company as he majored in Sports Science. After his studies in Stockholm, he worked in the sports technology industry, specialising in the measurement of sports performance for a few years. For a while, this seemed like the right career path for him until he came across Salesforce one day. “When I got the chance to join Fluido four years ago, it was a no-brainer for me as I wanted to work in this industry and in a close relationship with the customers”, Antti says. He got impressed by the company, the culture, the technology, and the innovation.

Working at Fluido is a constant learning process as the company grows and new challenges and opportunities are faced on the way. Also, the technology and the Salesforce ecosystem evolve continuously, which requires constant effort to stay up-to-date on all new functionalities. “Being a Salesforce pure-play partner, we obviously take pride in understanding also the technology side really well“, Antti says.

Antti Turunen started at Fluido in a sales role in the Norwegian market and about a year ago moved to Copenhagen and became responsible for Fluido’s business in Denmark and Norway. He describes sales at Fluido as a very consultative type of sales because the tasks include helping clients to evaluate and find the right Salesforce.com solutions and also, at the same time, being responsible for the business relationship with the client.

 

"We rely on people taking initiatives to make this a better place for everyone"

 

In his work, Antti enjoys most the fact that he gets to understand different businesses, how they operate and what is important to them. “Many times, we can draw parallels across verticals and create innovative solutions for complex scenarios”, he explains. Additionally, the good client relationships and the times when the Fluido team exceeds customer expectations in the service delivery are the things which keep him going.

To balance work life, Antti tries to reserve some time each day for exercise, which is very important for him. He loves spending time outside in nature, whether it is a hiking, mountaineering, biking, skiing or something else.

Antti describes Fluido as an encouraging workplace where it is easy to express your opinion and make an impact if something could be improved. Also, the company culture is very open and international. “We rely on people taking initiatives to make this a better place for everyone”, he sums up. He is looking forward to working with many new clients and delivering excellent services here at Fluido in the future and, of course, enjoys doing it.
