Title: Country Manager
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: PR Specialist
Degree: Bachelor in Economics

My name is Jenny and I work as a PR Specialist at Liana’s office in Stockholm. My role at Liana is to handle PR-related issues which means that I help our customers to develop their PR. I am also doing account management, consulting our customers as well as taking care of new employees and helping them succeed.

As soon as I got my Bachelor’s in Economics at Södertörn University, in 2018, I started working at Liana as an Account Manager. Due to my knowledge and interest in PR, I have taken more responsibility in that area and advanced to PR Specialist. What I appreciate the most with Liana is the possibilities to grow and take more responsibility. The company has a good atmosphere with open discussions and good coherence between coworkers.
Thanks to the flexible working hours, I have the opportunity to spend time with my dog in the forest and train young people in judo.

Some fun fact from my time at Liana: the first own customer meeting, I went on led to a deal.

Title: Junior Front-end Developer
Degree: Bachelor of Information Technology

I am Ilya and I work as a Front-end Developer in the Global Projects team in Oulu. I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia but I moved to Finland to study at the University of Applied Sciences in the autumn of 2015. Liana came into the picture when I heard about the company from friends who had gotten traineeships here. I applied for a Back-end Developer Trainee position, got it and started working for the company in May 2017.

What I like best about Liana is the flexibility that shows everywhere. I was able to pause my traineeship to do a study exchange and I was welcomed back into the company after my time abroad. While progressing in my studies and during my traineeship, I realized that my passion lies in front-end development. So when I returned, I transferred into front-end work in my team. I am impressed that the company allows me to grow in the direction I want to.

The atmosphere at the office is quite informal, while at the same time everyone does their work with professionalism. Because I spend my workdays building landing pages, sites and newsletter templates with our tools, another really important thing to me is that the Liana tools are getting better all the time with constant updates and new features.

The relaxed atmosphere of Liana is not limited to the office but can be noticed in free time as well. Company parties are never for just making a short appearance but people stay and enjoy the moment and time with coworkers that are also friends.

Title: Account Director
Degree: Master of Science in Information Processing Science and 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 nine years.

I’m a part of the Mid Market and Enterprise (MME) 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: Front-end Developer & Designer
Degree: Master in English Philology

I have a master's degree in English Philology from the University of Oulu. I have also studied graphical design and front-end development. Before I started working at Liana Technologies, I worked as a graphic designer and project assistant at Oulu University. I have also worked with 3D modeling in various game development projects.

The first time I heard about Liana Technologies was through a local recruitment event. I continued to study coding and submitted an open application as a Front-end Developer & Designer. A few hours later, I received an invitation to a job interview and started working at Liana on October 2015.

Currently, all of our clients' website projects are interesting because I get the opportunity to be creative and test new things in each project. The best thing about working at Liana is the flexible working hours and versatile tasks. I would describe Liana Technologies as an open and international workplace with a high tempo.

Title: Business Director, Marketing Automation
Degree: Master of Science in Information Networks

I joined Liana Technologies in 2011. At that time, I was working as a consultant in another IT company in southern Finland, but was eager to move back to Oulu. I came across Liana with one customer case and the company impressed me with their services. I found out that there are also few stablemates working there so when we moved back to Oulu I wanted to be a part of this great crew! People and team spirit have always been great at Liana and that's the thing I appreciate the most about working here!

I first started working in sales specializing in our partner network and enterprise accounts. I've always enjoyed working with customers and helping them to find the best possible solutions for their needs. I've worked with many of my customers since starting here. Therefore when years went by I was offered a position to lead our Customer Success team.

After two rewarding years in Customer Success team, I jumped from daily customer work to business and product development. I started as a Business Director in Marketing Automation in January 2019. I work in tight contact with our customers, product development and sales. So I'm still building those bridges between humans and computers.

Title: Senior Front-end Developer / Team Leader

I started my internship at Liana in 2011, when I was still a student for Bachelor’s degree. Now I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and also a Master’s Degree in Science, at the same time, I’m a Senior Front-end Developer and Team Leader.

My team is called Global Projects. We work with customer cases from all of our overseas markets. It is fun to work under a multi-cultural environment, where your colleagues are from different countries, so do your customers. They also come from various industries, so that I also gain some knowledge for those industries, be cause I need to understand what my customer is doing to make better and more proper solutions for them.

I have to say that we have a strong team spirit inside my team. Everyone has a positive attitude and helps each others, sharing knowledge and experiences. It is nice to see that we are progressing together. We also have some team members work remotely, at far away Hong Kong island, but we work closely, and the weekly team meeting let us get to know what everyone’s focusing on recently, and discuss different topics, technical or just general issues.

Liana Technologies is a global and fast-growing company with a relaxing and fun working environment. The flexibility of working hours is the best thing about working at Liana. It eliminates the conflict between work and life, and enables me to work when I'm at my best productivity level. I also like the possibilities inside company that help you to achieve your own career goal. For instance, you can change teams as you may sometimes want to try out new things.
