We’re a growing team, dedicated to making Locala the leading drive-to-store platform worldwide. Every day, we create, code, design and improve our platform to give our customers the best drive-to-store experience possible. At Locala, we love what we do and the people we do it with. Get to know us!
What does it mean to be Account Manager?
I act as a liaison between clients and Locala to answer operation needs and provide day-to-day strategic solutions that respond to clients’ KPIs and challenges. I collaborate with the sales team on prospecting efforts and proactively uncover untapped opportunities. I work alongside the trading and design teams to deliver best in class RFPs and successfully launch sold campaigns. Although my job focuses mostly on pre-sales efforts, which only has two people (including myself) managing all of the US portfolio, the nature of this fast-growing company also finds me covering post-sales tasks and ad-hoc projects — this makes my job even more interesting!
How would you describe yourself?
I consider myself a stress-free, positive, and glass half-full kind of girl. I’m always willing to help and if I don’t have a solution to the problem, I own up to it and reach out to the right people until we fix the situation. I’m a night owl, always have been and probably always will be! So, don’t be surprised if you see me online at crazy hours of the night! I think anyone who works with me knows I love a good party. I’ve helped organize happy hours, games, surprise birthdays… My motto is pretty cliché but true nonetheless: work hard, play hard 😄
If you could switch positions with a colleague, who would it be and why?
Probably a designer. I’ve always been super creative when it comes to art and making up games. I’ve always wanted to learn how to design websites and seeing our studio’s incredible work made me even more interested in graphic design. In my opinion, there’s a sense of freedom when it comes to their job, they get to play with assets and words and bring their vision to life.
What’s the craziest object you have on your desk?
My Google Home. This thing is possessed! It answers questions I never even asked and at the most random times. One time, it did it while I was on a client call!
What do you like most about your job?
I like that I get to work with everyone internally, regardless of the department they’re in. I also love facing clients and getting a sense of immense satisfaction when I help clarify things for them, which in turn grants us their trust and sometimes more business!
Who’s your favorite historical character?
Anyone who was brave enough to fight the system and change the status quo at their time and continues to do so.
What can we find in your fridge?
You’ll find a lot of cheese, Greek yogurt, dumplings, smoked salmon, some greens, mint and other fresh herbs. Anything from Trader Joe’s really, my favorite supermarket!
