As FOEX GmbH continues to grow and hire talented new employees, we’ve started this new article series to introduce our newest staff members to our customers, partners, readers and friends. In fact, why keep all this to ourselves when Gordana could soon be working with you!
Introducing Gordana Klimoska, our newest addition to the sales & marketing team, with this 7 “Get to know you” questions:
1. Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
I am MA graduate of the FH Wiener Neustadt where I studied marketing and sales. Since 2011 I live, study and work in Austria and was introduced to a variety of different cultures, people, nationalities, that enabled me to gain new knowledge, skills and abilities that shaped my personal and professional identity.
2. What was it about FOEX that attracted you the most?
It is quite simple: the opportunity to work at FOEX because of the team behind the company. It was amazing to see just how passionate they are about working on a great software development tool and make application development fast and easy. They are always on the move and look to take each idea and transfer it into a great project.
3. Was there a project or initiative in your career that sticks out the most?
First thing that comes to my mind is the initiative to organize and coordinate an international event: NASA Space Apps Challenge Vienna. The idea was born in 2015 when I met the co-organizer of the event. We started from scratch and managed to build an engaged community and contribute to the biggest hackathon in the world.
Young enthusiastic people from all around Austria and Europe gathered in Vienna to transfer their ideas into great projects. It is a rewarding feeling to be part of such an international project.
4. Where do you envision spending your 3 month sabbatical?
I would love to travel and visit the small local communities around the world.
5. What superpower would you like to have?
I was always fascinated about flying, so I guess that would be my superpower. It was my childhood dream 🙂
6. How do you spend your leisure time? Do you have any hobbies?
Reading and watching movies relaxes me, but spending time with my friends and traveling are my passion.
7. Is there a book that you would recommend to others?
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma. It’s a self-help book about the development of character and the discipline in life.
We’re excited to have Gordana a as part of our sales & marketing team and look forward to watching her continued development in the role!
