Team Stirista: Abhishek Saxena
This month’s Team Stirista blog features our esteemed colleague, Abhishek Saxena, Research Analyst for Stirista Solutions, in Bangalore, India. Let’s learn more about Abhishek.
Tell us more about your daily and overall responsibilities and how your average workday looks.
My work with Stirista is under two different departments. Within IT, my tasks include resolving direct client queries that come via our ticket system. Within Digital, my responsibilities are creating, managing, and updating several databases related to digital campaigns.
What do you like best about working at Stirista?
The people at Stirista, whether colleagues or senior management, are always ready to help.
Even if there is a deadline for every project, I never feel unusual pressure. I always feel free to think and to bring new ideas that help me complete the deadline.
What excites you most about your job?
The opportunity to learn something new every day is what excites me. Since I am responsible for the ticket system and directly interacting with clients, there are always new challenges, which can include understanding their requests and then processing them accordingly. The thing that excites me more is when a client moves the deadline up, and I need to push the limit and re-plan the whole process to meet that earlier deadline.
Tell us about your background. What did you do before coming to Stirista?
I graduated in 2010. Before I joined Stirista in April 2015, I worked as a computer trainer in my home city. Then I moved to Delhi, and for two years, I worked as an SEO/SMO executive for two different companies.
Tell us something we don’t know about you or that others might be surprised to learn.
During my undergrad days, I was on a team that developed a big, city-based project that was launched by the district magistrate. On a lighter note, I am also very fond of movies.
What advice would you give to someone interested in your job?
Every day there is something to learn on the job. If there is no fixed rule or solution, one must be creative and open to learning. I would advise never to hesitate to ask questions. Asking questions can help provide a better and more precise picture of the process.
