Title: Developer

At Teleopti since: Aug 2015

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I was studying my last year at KTH and was looking for a master project when I found an opportunity at the R&D (Research and Development) section at Teleopti. When my project was done I joined the International Trainee Program for 15 months and now I am back at R&D.

Best thing about working at Teleopti.

One of the things I appreciate the most about Teleopti is that it is an open-minded company. Whether you have been working at the company for 15 years or just a few months, new ideas are always welcomed. From day one I have truly felt that my colleagues value my opinions and that I have been a part of the team. Teleopti also gives you the opportunity to challenge yourself and go outside your comfort zone. Within my two years at Teleopti I have already experienced the combination of two very different working roles. In my first role I spent almost every week visiting customers and now I’m working as a developer.

When are you the happiest?

I feel the happiest after accomplishing a good result and achieving my goals after a long time of hard work.

What do you do when you are not at work?

I am a physically active person who loves to try out new sports and activities. For example, I have been spending a lot of time at the golf court lately. Beyond sports, me and my girlfriend love cooking nice dinners and try out new restaurants.

Name three hobbies of yours.

As mentioned above, golf is a new hobby of mine. I also love traveling and exploring new places. If these travels include activities such as surfing, skiing or scuba diving, I am more than pleased. Football is also a hobby that I have. I don’t play myself any longer but I love to watch my favorite team play here in Stockholm.

Name three things still left on your bucket list.

Sky-diving
Safari in Africa
Scuba diving in Sipadan Islands, Malaysia¬¬

If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?

Teleportation. Imaging being able to go to any country or city you like, whenever you want, without wasting any time.

Title: Testing Engineer

At Teleopti since: Aug 2016

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I was on parental leave and just randomly scrolling on one of the recruiting mobile app while I came across an opening for the testing engineer. It was after a day or so I received an email from Lina (my Current Manager). In evening when I told my husband about applying in this company he reminded me that I had been applying here when I was new in Sweden (4 years ago,). Checking on the email backlogs I realized he was very right. But this time I made sure they hire me.

Best thing about working at Teleopti.

There is a long list for this one. Being a new mom my priority was my son. I must acknowledge here that not only Teleopti has helped me in becoming a better Testing engineer but also be a good SANE mother to a toddler by being so flexible with the working hours. The diverse environment and the English mode of communication is also one of the comforting factors for me to work here. High level of respect and acceptance for religious beliefs is an example of it. Despite having a non-Swedish environment, we also have the weekly Swedish lunches where all the non-Swedish speaking like me can try to work on our Swedish skills. The opportunity for me to work single handedly or to be part of a team simultaneously is so critical for a person like me who gets easily bored. So it is a WIN-WIN situation for me for all the different aspects of my life.

When are you the happiest?

Watching my kid trying to speak English, Swedish and Urdu all at the same time. I am also the happiest when I am with my parents and siblings in my home town. Exploring new places with my beloved one also makes me the happiest. And when my cooking experiments turn out successful. Being a neat freak of course having things neat and clean makes me at the top of the world as well(weird I know ).

What do you do when you are not at work?

Spending time with my son and husband, cycling, Facetiming with my family, capturing my baby’s Precious moments.

Name three hobbies of yours.

I love to ride around the city. I usually take my son on early Saturday morning rides to the downtown while the city is still asleep. It’s the best feeling ever.
Dining out. Back in my home town I was notorious for trying out every new eating out place even before it got famous. I am still exploring the cuisines in Stockholm though.
Retail Therapy but with the plants. Air plants are my obsessions now day

Name three things still left on your bucket list.

Riding a Heavy Bike
Sky diving
Learning Swedish

If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?

It would be travel time. I want to relive my childhood again with my loved ones. And also, I would have liked to be a generation born in 50s and raised in 60s in Pakistan. Life was so much simpler. Best of art ,music and fashion was back then I believe.

Title: Full stack developer, based in Gävle

At Teleopti since: May 2017

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I was asked if I would be interested by a former colleague of mine who is now my boss 😊
At first, I thought it was some telemarketing firm that called but I soon realized it was much more interesting.

Best thing about working at Teleopti.

The colleagues! If I need help with some problem I can just throw out a question on our Slack and get help in minutes. A Very nice feeling when you’re not yet familiar with the product etc.

When are you the happiest?

I am happiest when I feel I’ve done something meaningful. At work, it can be when we have solved some difficult tasks together. Aside from work, it’s when I have fun with the grandchildren (yes I have two of those) and when I’m out in the bushes with my camera.

What do you do when you are not at work?

I photograph a lot, landscapes and portraits. I drive off to somewhere, preferably some new place and wander about seeking compositions. Aside from that my wife and I have an old house that we like to renovate and a garden that needs some care and attention.

Name three hobbies of yours.

Photography, as mentioned, is my major hobby. I like to make stuff with my hands, mostly something in or around the house.
One other thing me and my wife likes to do is take the car and drive off to random locations, just exploring the country.

Name three things still left on your bucket list.

I would like to travel to some places to take landscape photos, Iceland and Norway are high on that, rather long, list.
I would love to go by helicopter through the Grand Canyon and see the redwood trees in California.
I would like to try an electric supercar like the Rimac Concept One 🙂

If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?

Fly like Superman, without any help from any gadgets would be very nice. Not sure what the authorities would say if I flew around taking pictures though.

Title: Customer Lifecycle Manager

At Teleopti since: August 2015

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I was working for a Teleopti partner since 2008, originally supporting Teleopti on the ServiceDesk, then installing and training customers and then supporting the sales team as a Pre-sales consultant. I had a great relationship with the Teleopti team and when I heard about the opportunity to join the UK team I was confident it was the right decision to come and work for a great company.

Best thing about working at Teleopti.

I enjoy the support that I get from everyone else in Teleopti, from all departments. This support, the freedom and trust that I have in my working life and the fact that we have a great product and focus on customer satisfaction are the best things about working for Teleopti.

When are you the happiest?

When I am relaxing in a sunny place with friends and family.

What do you do when you are not at work?

Spend time with family, work on projects around the house in the garden or the garage.

Name three hobbies of yours.

Football
DIY
Motorcycles

Title: Project Manager / WFM Consultant

At Teleopti since: August 2015

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I previously worked as a project manager in the healthcare industry, and my love of the outdoors as well as the possibility to be closer to family led me to relocate to Denver. I knew I wanted to stay in the software project management world, so when I saw Teleopti on The Ladders (a job site) I was immediately drawn to the job description and more importantly the description of an open and positive company culture. Fast forward a few interviews later and I am heading to Stockholm for training.

Best thing about working at Teleopti.

All of the colleagues I get to collaborate with. I have daily communication with people all around the globe who are supportive, knowledgeable, adventurous spirits and committed to creating both a great place to work and happy customers. I also realized quickly how passionate people are at Teleopti, and it is totally contagious – in the times where we are working 100% on an issue I always notice the feeling of closeness and even the more stressful times are a fun problem solving experience.

When are you the happiest?

Experiencing new places, foods, activities. The anticipation of a plane landing in a new destination where you are not 100% sure what to expect is one of my favorite feelings.

What do you do when you are not at work?

Living in Denver, CO where you get four seasons full of activities I spend a lot of time outdoors. Hiking, reading, hanging out in Wash park playing volleyball, or having a craft beer on a patio. I apparently wasn’t quite ready to give up my mediocre talents as an athlete, so I’ve joined quite a few intramural leagues including kickball, softball, dodgeball. Let’s just say our talents have led to many spirit awards, not so many Wins. 🙂

Name three hobbies of yours.

Cheering on Nebraska Huskers football (GO BIG RED), Skiing, and road tripping/camping through the national parks

Name three things still left on your bucket list.

Travel to Japan (looking at you, Olympics 2020), adopt a puppy, multi-day raft trip down the grand canyon

If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?

Teleportation – As you may have noticed by my above answers, I really enjoy traveling to new places. Getting to transport to these on a whim would be fantastic.

Title: Project Manager / WFM Consultant

At Teleopti since: August 2015

How did you start working at Teleopti?

I started as a trainee in the International Trainee Program. Fresh out of school and eager to learn it all!

Best thing about working at Teleopti.
The fact that it’s a young growing company, which makes it agile, exciting while still keeping a family feeling. Things keep moving and evolving and you feel you’re a key part of that process. You know your colleagues across departments and countries personally and you can easily work on quick solutions to complex problems together. This combined with the fact that we are in the Premiere League of WFM solutions, which makes us deal with big global and exciting partners and customers daily. Add to that the travelling I do in my role, and you get a job which never gets boring, which will give you a global perspective and pushes you to learn and become better every day.

When are you the happiest?

When I come back home and meet my loved ones after a long period away. Plus I have the luxury of having two homes to go back to: My native Argentina, and my adopted Sweden 🙂

What do you do when you are not at work?

After work I usually chill with my beloved husband and cook good food while we watch one of our favorite shows on TV. We are trying to squeeze in some gym time in this evening routine.

Name three hobbies of yours.

– Shopping in all its forms – furniture, clothes, even boring stuff such as car spare parts. I enjoy the feeling of searching and finding the best solution for a need
– Video games – especially oldies like Monkey Island
– Cross-country skiing – on TV and trying to master it myself. Ultimate goal: Being the first Argentinean girl to complete Tjejvasan.

Name three things still left on your bucket list.
– Visiting the Pyramids in Egypt
– Overcoming my fear of skiing downhill
– Getting my driver’s license

If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?

Controlling time, definitely. Fast forward, rewind, slow motion, pause. Imagine all the possibilities 🙂 No other superpower beats that.

Speed

Speed

Speed is often an important competitive advantage when a customer chooses between two solutions, and one can be delivered when the customer wants it. Never speed before quality, but rather speed in getting back with a response or decision, speed between us internally, and speed in adapting to changes in the world around us. We see no conflict between speed and quality. Rather, quality is a prerequisite for speed.

“It was 2001, after a couple of tough years peaking with the .com crash and lots of bankruptcies for IT companies. Our customers were screaming for a new, better product, with support for multi-skilling. We were losing sales and the pressure to get a product out on the market was immense.

I was head of development and we had set out to create a completely new WFM solution, and deliver it at an event in London, in 100 days. The whole development team was focused and I could see how we slowly made progress in each and every module.

When we were getting close to the launch I had not yet seen any individual module working in the new management console. A tremendous effort was made from the whole team in order to get their respective modules ready to work.

In the last two weeks before the launch, the different modules started to “snap in” to the management console. But when the flight to London took off, I had not yet seen a fully working system… We kept working on the flight, when we landed, on the way to our hotels, and the entire night before the event.

And guess what? We managed to launch a new version on time!

I believe this set the foundation for our leadership in multi-skill scheduling. The sales took off, projects could be delivered and the version helped us go international and win our first big UK customer.”

Commitment

Commitment

The core value commitment was the easiest to formulate. We have always been blessed with employees who are extraordinarily dedicated. Many have worked hard to ensure customers satisfaction and we don’t have much evidence of the “not my desk” mentality at Teleopti.

“It was a chaotic morning at Servicedesk. The load of tickets from a customer in Croatia kept increasing, and the customer’s frustration was reaching new heights by the minutes. I had just joined Teleopti and felt helpless.

In the middle of everything, the Servicedesk manager stood up and shouted, desperately: “Well, we can’t just send someone there! Then she fell silent, and looked around at us. “…or can we?”

A moment later, plane tickets were purchased and our most experienced consultant flew to Croatia to handle the issues on-site, side by side with the customer.

The issues got resolved, and that’s when I understood how important it is for Teleopti to go the extra mile in order to keep our commitments to the customers. Actions speak louder than words.”

Closeness

Closeness

One of the reasons for our success is that we are close to our customers and listen to them. The closeness to each other as managers and employees is also very important. We are dependent on each other and need to get on in order to achieve the best possible results. Of course, closeness is really put to the test when we have staff across 16 offices serving clients in 80 countries, but in fact, closeness is more important than ever.

“After Tommy* joined Teleopti, we finally had a Finnish speaking consultant in Finland. At the end of his first customer project with Helen, Helsinki Energy Company, we arranged a project meeting with the customer.

At the start of the meeting, I, like I usually do, shook hands with everybody, and kept my distance, as I know Finns are quite strict when it comes to doing business. But when Tommy entered the room, everyone hugged him, and my jaw dropped to the floor. I knew they were happy with the project, but that happy? Tommy is a gem, true closeness.”
