2023 started with a bang for HackSoft.
Our team has grown, and we would like to introduce you one of the new additions to it. Meet Yana, the latest member of the Marketing team. 🤗
Can you tell us more about yourself?
My name is Yana, and I'm a member of the marketing team. 👋
I had yet to learn what marketing was when I was younger but I was always keen on organizing events and ensuring that everything ran smoothly. That is how I got my first job, which was all about event planning.
My interest in marketing grew, and I soon found myself diving into employer branding. After a while, I started working in B2B marketing and it got me so excited, so here I am now.
What are you working on and for how long?
I'm excited to say that I've recently joined the team, having been with the company for a little more than a month.
My primary focus right now is helping HackSoft to keep growing, creating a marketing strategy and execution plan for generating leads, and creating a solid foundation for our marketing efforts. I'm eager to get started and see what we can accomplish together as a team. I'm excited to be a part of this company and contribute to its continued growth and success. 🙌
Why did you decide to join HackSoft?
To be honest, I wasn't actively looking for a career change when I came across HackSoft’s opportunity but I decided to give it a shot. I had heard about the company from friends who had attended the HackBulgaria courses, as well as from people working there. I had personally visited many of the HackConf editions, so I had a pretty good idea of what the company was all about.
For me, it's very important to feel like I'm part of something valuable, to feel like I'm making a difference. When I spoke with the folks at HackSoft, I could feel their passion for the work they were doing and I knew that this was a company where I could make an impact. It was clear to me that the team at HackSoft was focused on people, culture, and exceptional software solutions.
All in all, I felt that joining HackSoft was the right move for me, and I'm excited to be a part of such a dynamic and passionate team.
