Employee Success Stories

Matt

Jana

Melissa

“I have worked at a lot of big companies before and I was ready for a change where I really had the ability to control my day-to-day. GotPhoto allowed me to do that.”

Matt studied Sales and Business Marketing at Western Michigan University. Before working at GotPhoto, had worked for some larger companies, first starting out as an intern at a Fortune 500 company. As he progressed through his career, he started to realize that he wanted to be able to have more control over his work, and while doing so, push the company forward. When Matt joined GotPhoto he was the only Sales Manager for the United States. This allowed him to learn the market and build how the product and the sales processes should look for a growing company. He has since excelled at bringing on and creating a very large customer base for the US photography market.

“I learned a lot here and got to try so many different things. There’s always the trust and freedom to do that.”

Jana is one of the first employees to relocate to our new office in New York. Being initially hired for performance marketing, she now heads up the entire marketing for the US market.

Jana has a Cultural Studies and American Studies degree but specalized in performance marketing in her previous job. Since joining us in January 2018 she has been playing a key role in establishing scalable processes in performance marketing. However, her job always allowed to work on a variety of other marketing projects, which ultimately sparked her interest in general marketing as well. When she was offered the opportunity to join the US team, she happily took on this new challenge. Jana is currently leading all of our marketing campaigns in the US and is excited that she can build something from the start.
Looking back, what’s most important for her is the fact that she found a workplace where she feels comfortable to voice her opinion, where she feels appreciated, and where she is able to continue to learn professionally and personally day after day.

“It’s a great feeling to know you made someone’s day by helping them with their questions.” 

Originally from New York, Melissa is one of our first team members to join the US Customer Success team. She was initially interested in GotPhoto while the company was still in the early steps of setting up its first US location and took in the startup nature of the environment. Melissa has an Art History degree with a background in hospitality, customer service and tech. She previously worked as a QA analyst in Reykjavik, Iceland before joining Got Photo in Customer Success.
