1. Name, position, in SALESmanago since…
Krystian Kuta, Sales Manager for the UK & DACH region. I have been with SALESmanago since November 2018, when I started in an entry-level position.
2. Coffee, workout, meditation – how do you start your workday and get ready for conquering the world?
To be perfectly blunt, I am not really a morning person. I need to think as little as possible during the first 20 minutes of my day, so my alarm clock is set to “snooze,” and after 10 minutes of additional sleep, a short “autopilot” process starts—espresso and shower (always ending with cold water). This is a one-two combination as the coffee starts to kick in right after the shower, so from there, I can consciously prepare to spend the rest of the morning conquering the world.
3. How did you find your way to your current role at SALESmanago?
I remember the moment when I went up to the 2nd floor to be interviewed by Greg himself. The funny thing is that I was feeling extremely uncomfortable from the very start because I came suited up, with a tie and everything, whereas the whole office (Greg included) was super-casual 😂. I didn’t appreciate the start-up vibe back then, so I thought that I would fail the interview miserably. Fortunately, the reality turned out to be completely different, and I was hired on the spot. It was easy from there and, step by step, I went through a BDR to AE and then, when the opportunity came, I took a manager position, which is where I am right now.
4. Which of the SALESmanago values speak to you the most?
It would definitely be Execution & Performance, together with Appreciation of Individual Effort/Commitment. It is no surprise that I chose those two because I have been in sales since… forever. Nevertheless, from my first day here, there has always been room for impact-hungry individuals to get outside the brackets. Most importantly, SALESmanago has helped by creating an environment in which people can reach their full potential. This is what I’ve been seeing for more than four years!
5. What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Helpful, Positive, Organized
6. You are on a deserted island, and you can choose one person and one thing from the company to be there with you. Who and what will they be, and why?
This is simply an impossible task! There are so many interesting people in the organization, and I’m pretty sure that I would have a fantastic time (our company parties are proof of that) with every single one of them. One thing I know for sure is that I would not leave for the deserted island without a ton of sweets from the office 😇
7. What have you recently done for the first time in your life?
Lately, everything has been revolving around the thing that I will be doing for the first time in around August this year:being a dad!!!
