Inside Sales Specialist, Central Europe
Meet our EuRobotiq Team – The interview
How did you start working with Robotiq?
When Andréanne Pichette (from Robotiq’s Human Resources department) first contacted me, I was still working in the sports equipment manufacturing industry; she wanted some custom cycling jerseys made for the Robotiq team. I thought it was so cool of the company to do that for their employees, and to encourage colleagues to be active together. Since then, Robotiq remained at the back of my mind, and later, during my second maternity leave, I decided to apply for the Inside Sales Specialist position!
I was so happy to join the awesome Robotiq team and be part of such a forward-thinking company.
What do you work on? What does that mean for the world?
On a daily basis, I help Central European manufacturers implement automation solutions in their factories. I always try to see situations from our customers’ perspectives and pay close attention to their needs, because this lets me suggest the most efficient paths toward automation (and thus, production). Another part of my job is serving as a support coordinator for Central European Robotiq partners. I love this part of my role because I care a lot about helping partners make their clients happy.
What are your biggest values?
I’m a positive person. I try to see the good in every situation, and of course, a touch of humor always helps; this approach has served me well in every area of my life.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I really enjoy running. I started running more ambitiously during my second maternity leave because it was a way to make some time for myself. I use my runs to think about life and weigh important decisions.
I’m also very creative: I always have ideas for new projects, from revamping old picture frames to drawing a unicorn mural for my daughter’s room. Finally, people who know me well also know I’m very good at… online shopping! I love taking the time to find the best deals for everything I need.
