What surprised you the most when you started?
I was really surprised how much Tele2 embrace their values and culture, which I think is one of the most important things as a company in order to be successful.
Describe a typical day at work?
A typical workday for me starts with checking my mailbox along with a short recap on what I did yesterday and what I will do today. At 9:15 me and my team has daily standup to sync and recap where we are and what we will do. During the day if I don’t sit with the team and develops, I am most often on meetings regarding my team projects or the Program. Every team has their own lunch times but, in my team, we take lunch around 11am.
What are your hobbies or passions outside of work?
In my spare time I like to go the gym or take a jog outside. Another passion of mine is world travelling, I love to explore different cultures and meet people from all around the world.
