Viaplay is a fast paced and dynamic work environment. To stay on top of the game employees have to be agile and ready for any opportunities that may come their way, something Karolina experiences on a daily basis as a project manager.
- I enjoy running and participating in a variety of projects. It feels good to be part of building Viaplay and see your contributions materialize from start to finish. Staying busy comes natural to me and probably spans to my personal life as well where I like to stay active with different types of sports.
Karolina enjoys watching movies and series, making Viaplay an ideal workplace.
- I feel fortunate that I get to combine one of my hobbies with work. In addition, I have always been interested in the tech industry so it feels good to work at a company where the two, entertainment and tech, meet.
Before joining the MTG group in 2016, as a trainee to CEO Jørgen Madsen Lindemann and CFO Maria Redin, Karolina gained experience from working in the fintech sector.
- I studied at Stockholm School of Economics but decided to take a year off between my bachelor’s and master’s studies to do an internship at a tech start-up in San Francisco. I enjoyed the scene and the entrepreneurial drive. That was probably what attracted me to Viaplay. The company is innovative and employs ambitious people with great visions.
Being a trainee was a stepping stone for a job in content at Viaplay:- During my year as a trainee I got an insight into what the different companies within the group worked with and found the content business especially appealing. I think our team is outstanding and I very much enjoy working with every single person. But it is the fact that we take chances and dare to invest in new ideas that’s the real edge.
What’s the biggest lesson of your career so far?
– I think that’s something my boss once told me. “Nothing is rocket science”. If you stress out over a task, most often it will simply take time and dedication to get it done.
