For our next Stimulus Staff Spotlight, we talk to Jiri. Before joining us, he attended University in the U.S. One of his current hobbies is learning Chinese and he loves the culture and challenges that working at Stimulus provides.
1. 10 years ago, what did you think you would be doing now?
At that point in time, I had just started my second year at university. I expected to become an economist when I graduated. Honestly, I don’t think I planned 10 years ahead. In all likelihood, I thought I would just progress with my career in the field of economics or related fields.
2. What quote do you live your life by?
“It’s the climb.” I feel like focusing primarily on goals and neglecting the journey is detrimental to wellbeing as well as productivity. This can remind me to enjoy the ride as well.
3. What’s the one thing you couldn’t live without?
Internet. I believe that connectivity changed our society. I have family and friends that live far away, internet bridges that distance. Frankly, Stimulus is tightly connected through Salesforce to the cloud as well. Therefore, internet permeates both my personal and professional life.
4. What do you like to do in your spare time?
My hobby is learning Chinese. Trying to understand a different culture and language is really quite interesting. It often feels like an endless struggle, but it has rewarding moments as well.
5. What are you listening to/reading/watching at the moment?
I like Chinese TV show called Chinese Restaurant. It’s about famous Chinese personalities coming together to open a restaurant abroad. I would recommend it as it is highly entertaining to watch actors trying to cook and serve food.
6. What’s your previous working experience?
During my university years in the United States, I worked in the Center for Business and Economic Research as a research assistant. After graduation, I worked for a US Salesforce partner company. I accepted that position primarily to learn more about project management and administration. It enabled me to learn a lot about the Salesforce platform and join various Salesforce projects.
7. What’s your favourite thing about life at Stimulus?
The people and the Stimulus culture. I feel a sense of togetherness and achievement when we meet the challenges of the day. Tackling the stream of challenges make the work at Stimulus truly fulfilling.
8. What are you excited about during the next year at Stimulus?
I expect that the future projects will bring new challenges that we will meet.
