I joined Liana after my previous job in graphic design had ended and I was looking for a new position in media design and marketing. The company I worked at previously was a customer of Liana Technologies and I also had a few friends working here so I was already familiar with the company and knew that it was a thriving company with a nice atmosphere. I filled in the application and started my job here a few months later.

My responsibilities are keeping track of our marketing actions in Finland and also in the UAE area together with the rest of the marketing team. I produce content in forms of articles, photos, videos and guides, compose newsletters, organize events and analyze our marketing actions.

My most interesting project so far is probably organizing the Markkinoinnin Viikko event. While it is not exactly what I studied, it was interesting to come up with new ideas and arrange all the details of the event. The event itself was hectic and there was a lot to do all the time, but it was very rewarding.

I really enjoy the work environment and atmosphere at Liana Technologies. The company is very flexible and my coworkers are always very helpful. You can always ask for help, but there also always room to improve yourself.

Degree: Master of Science (M.Sc.), Information Processing Science, Software Business

I started as a sales trainee in 2010. I figured that Liana Technologies could be an excellent place to have a training period. And after all, everything went so well that I’m still here, after more than six years.

I’m a part of the Enterprise Accounts team. My responsibility is to keep some of our major accounts happy and to sell our products to them. And of course I need to get new customers as much as I can as well.

The Eräluvat case might be my most interesting project so far. It is a combination of LianaCMS, LianaMailer and LianaCommerce. Now there is also one automation running. I think Eräluvat LianaCommerce is one of the biggest deals ever made at Liana Technologies!

Title: Account Manager
Age: 22
Degree: Bachelor of Business Administration

My name is Ilya and I am an Account Manager at Liana Technologies. I joined the German team of Liana in September 2016.

My story at Liana started quite spontaneously. After I finished my BBA, I decided to join the work life straight away and I was contacted about an opportunity of contributing to the success of a fast-growing Finnish company on the German Market. After getting acquainted with the tools the company offers, I decided right away that these are the kind of solutions I would love to introduce the German companies to.

However, the biggest positive surprises were waiting for me when I got to my training week in Oulu. That’s when I understood the true value of Liana - the incredible potential, flexibility and authentic team spirit.

Although I believe most of my interesting projects are still to come, the first month has brought me marvelous experiences that include meetings with interesting people, a massive Cologne Marketing Expo and of course, the first deals.

I encourage everyone, who has true passion for sales, great achievements and making the world a better place to join our team!

Title: Business Development Manager

I have a degree in Business Administration from the Middlesex University London and I have previously worked in three different continents. I have been working for Liana Technologies for a year and a half now and I found Liana Technologies when I was searching for jobs in LinkedIn. I am responsible for managing our accounts and generating new business. My job includes meeting with clients and managing their expectations. 

My most interesting project so far has been working with big, global companies, for example Firmenich and LeasePlan. I really enjoy the company culture and I think that is the best part of working for Liana Technologies. I would describe the company as fun, diverse and global.

Age: 25
Degree : French-Swiss Master in International Business Development and Entrepreneurship

After my studies I worked in a digital agency in Paris and with a well-known software company. I was looking for an opportunity in a more international setting and that's when I found Liana Technologies through a recruitment agency. 

My role at Liana is to develop our business activities in France and to help my clients with their projects. The most interesting part of the job to me is the preliminary discussions with the client, when we elaborate a digital strategy sustained by Liana's tools. This allows me to get a full view of their objectives. 

Working at Liana Technologies also lets me free to fulfill my personal goals, be it with my webradio, my rock band or with my passion for French football. All of my colleagues have very specific and strong passions, which contributes to the strength of our team.

Title: Front-end Web Developer
Age: 25

I have a bachelor’s degree in business administration and I am currently working on my master’s degree in information processing sciences. I have been working for Liana Technologies since 2011. I started out as an intern and since my internship went smoothly, I joined Lianacrew permanently.

My main responsibility is designing and implementing newsletters, websites and online stores. I also make sure that the newsletters and sites are in line with the clients’ brand by designing drafts for the templates according to the clients’ visual image. I am a very visual person and thus enjoy projects with good-looking designs the most – even if they might take a bit longer to implement.

I find Liana Technologies is becoming a global and fast-growing company with a relaxing and fun work environment. The flexibility of working hours is the best part about working at Liana as it eliminates the conflict between work and life and makes it possible to work when I’m at my best productivity level.
