Attached has an awesome team and has continued to grow that team even through the corona crisis. One of our newest project managers, Valeria Macci from Italy, joined us in March right as the quarantine began. Because of this, she has only met her new colleagues through video chat. A unique start for a unique person.
A few days before the corona pandemic, Valeria went with her gut feeling to move. In less than 24 hours, she packed and moved from Italy to the Netherlands. A good thing she did because we’ve gained a terrific colleague passionate about interlingual communication and the need to understand and connect people.
At the age of 14, Valeria started translating her favorite song lyrics from English. This inspired her to study and learn more languages adding Mandarin Chinese, French and now Dutch to her portfolio. She is currently rounding out her ambition with a second Master’s in Marketing and Communication.
One of the benefits to starting a new job remotely is that it has given her more time to assimilate and learn gradually. Valeria says, “I was lucky to find a company with a long-term vision that decided to hire me despite the lockdown. I think that the main strength of Attached is represented by the people. With the right team, you’re never alone.”
Well said, Valeria. We can’t wait to meet you in person!
