When Olga joined Microsoft Russia as channel marketing intern in CCG in July 2014, she quickly realized that her dream would be a role in Sales. And it didn’t take long that the opportunity came across: within the first year, Olga was promoted Inside Sales Executive in SMS&P and joined the MACH community.
At her young age—Olga is 24 years old—she already has a strong track record to look back to: she graduated from the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, received a diploma with honors, and won a scholarship at the British Petroleum (BP) company for high student performance and leadership abilities. Currently, she works with Moscow-based CTM commercial customers, helping them to resolve their business needs and drive cloud solutions of our partners.
When asked what’s the exciting part in her job, she gets very excited: “I think I have the best job! I work in a team with my opportunity manager, PSE, TSSPs, creative marketers and product managers, all who are passionate about technology. I have been able to develop my communication and collaboration skills and gain useful experiences and insight into Microsoft as an organization, as well as learn so much more about Microsoft products and services. And, of course, the most important part of my job is working with customers!”
In fact, Olga can be truly proud of the professional experiences she gained until now: as a firm believer in the Growth Mindset paradigm, she is passionate about selling our Cloud at scale; and as an early adopter of our Azure Everywhere through Partners program, she achieved her personal Azure targets before the end of the fiscal year, thus helping improve the Azure Everywhere program as a whole.
Olga believes that the MACH program opens up great opportunities and is an excellent career start: “I can improve my knowledge about the IT market, technologies, new trends and customer businesses. I also appreciate the feedback from my colleagues about my performance that help me achieve more. The MACH community is a great platform to communicate with talented and interesting people from around the world, participate in special trainings and share experiences.”
