Antoine Laczewny

Account Executive, French Sales Team, Amsterdam

Tell us about yourself and where you are from.

I am originally from Rouen, a city located in Normandy (France). I decided to move to Amsterdam in November of 2019 after several months in Ireland. 

How does your team stay connected while [still] working from home?

Working from home was completely new for me. I can say that I don’t hate working from home due to the calm environment, it helps to stay focused. 

Also, my team stays connected by having morning meetings —  one with all of the EMEA sales department and another with the French sales team. We also play funny games online (typically on Fridays), to keep this laughing spirit together! 

What is the most challenging part of your position?

As an Account Executive, the most challenging part for me is trying to convince someone on the phone that our solution is the best and without risk. Each call is a challenge and this is what keeps me motivated! 

Why do you like working at FareHarbor?

Despite this pandemic which prevents us from exploring our world (one of my passions), I still appreciate being able to “travel” while keeping in touch with our potential partners located all over Europe. Listening, reassuring, and proposing an adequate solution livens up my daily life. 

Kaitlin Vaillancourt

Training Operations Associate, Denver

Tell us about yourself and where you are from.

I am from Tucson, Arizona! I started my career as a foreign language teacher in Spain and have slowly transitioned into adult training. When I saw FareHarbor was hiring, it seemed like a great way to put my passion for traveling with my skills in teaching! Nowadays, I am part of our People team and am one of the first faces people meet at FareHarbor as they go through new-hire training.

What would you say to someone who is seeking new opportunities and considering FareHarbor for their next career move?

The great thing about starting a position at FareHarbor is our new-hire training (shameless plug)! People come from all kinds of careers and I really believe anyone can be trained as long as you are willing to learn. The diverse work experiences everyone brings to the company help us stay innovative. 

What has been your favorite experience or memory from your time at FareHarbor?

Our Core Value Awards! Each year, employees can nominate their colleagues to win one of our Core Value Awards. Hearing the kind nominations people have spent time writing makes you realize how great our company is!

Why do you like working at FareHarbor?

The people I work with and the clients we have really set FareHarbor a notch above other companies. It’s a great place to work if you want to feel supported by your colleagues. everyone is happy to help if you have a question (or a thousand)! 

Additionally, even though we aren’t a small company by any means, it’s very familiar and easy to make friends and get to know people on different teams. 

Diana Montelongo

Sales Manager, Amsterdam

Tell us about yourself and where you are from.

I was born in Mexico City, which I always feel proud of when I introduce myself. I’ve been living in the Netherlands for the past 4 years, and I love adventure! 

I decided that Amsterdam was home when I started working at FareHarbor. More than ever, I grew to learn that the best in me comes from the people that surround me, and this has been my favorite adventure so far. I love to travel, I love to cook, and I love to learn! I’m a student as well at the moment in Rome (remotely). 

How would you describe the culture at FareHarbor?

FareHarbor is a workplace that invariably becomes your family, and it doesn’t matter where you come from, because you always end up feeling like you belong here. It is always exciting, fun, and challenging. 

There’s a constant feeling of “We’re getting there! Keep going! We can do it!”.

What is the most rewarding part of your position?

The most rewarding thing is feeling fulfilled at the end of the day because a happy client went live with FareHarbor. Our job is to make their lives easier, and there is nothing more rewarding than succeeding. 

Why do you like working at FareHarbor?

FareHarbor is its people 100%. It is like we’ve all known each other forever, and if I get to motivate my colleagues, I feel motivated myself! 

FareHarbor’s people are full of energy, curious, smart, welcoming, inspirational, and always hungry for more to achieve! It feels amazing to be part of it.
