We continue our behind-the-scenes series of interviews with WakeupData staff members - to give all our users, partners and readers a chance to see what we are like!
This week we talked with Victor Smedegaard, Business Development Manager at WakeupData.
Could you introduce yourself and let us know what it is you do at WakeupData?
My name is Victor Smedegaard, I am 30 years old and an Aarhus native. I am working at WakeupData as a Business Development Manager, with the goal of broadening our markets in the nordics.
Can you tell us about your background?
I went to Aarhus University for a year studying economics. However, I changed to Global Business Engineering and graduated the 4.5 year bachelor in January of 2017. I started in WakeupData as an intern in the fall of 2015, continued as part-timer through the remainder of my studies and began working full-time after graduating. Recently, I switched role from Customer Success Management to my current.
What is your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part of the job is when clients come back to us happy and with good results. I like to be a participating factor in making people happy.
My second favorite is to participate in the 'high-quality' humor we have at the office :)
Outside of helping spread the word of our high-quality, optimised datafeeds, what are your interests or hobbies?
Outside of work I like to stay active either in the gym or by playing football. I love eating good food, so living downtown and close to a bunch of great food places is great. And of course playing Fortnite, not to be forgotten!
And finally...who is your favorite superhero?
Can only be Blade. Many probably don’t remember him because of the recent Marvel hype, but the first Blade movie I had on VHS as a kid and it is still one of my favorite movies!
N.B. Great choice! You can't beat a quality VHS.
