Can you tell us a little bit about your background? How did you end up in your current role?
I was born and raised in Russia. Moved to California 20 years ago. I graduated from San Francisco State in the Spring of 2016, with B.S. in Business Administration-Finance, and became a contractor for Just Global in November of 2016. Nine months later, on 8/1/2017, I became a full-time employee, and the rest is history!
What does your day-to-day job look like? Take us through your work routine.
I like to begin my workday by checking the bank for newly posted payments. Making sure our clients are billed and we are paid on time, is a crucial part of our business. The majority of the day consists of managing the requests from the team; whether it’s adding new clients, setting up projects, creating estimates and sales orders, all are equally important. Some of my other responsibilities include assisting our upper management with revenue recognition, reporting, and forecasting.
