With a myriad of opportunities cloud technology has to offer, we continue to rapidly grow and empower our partners to achieve success. There is certainly a driving force behind our progress and accomplishments – it is our people. In this article, you’ll get to know our new team members who have enriched our company with a diversity of perspectives they bring to the table. They love cloud and have also passions outside of cloud. Let’s meet them and explore their personalities with random questions!
Parsa Madani, Cloud Generation Specialist
My name is Parsa Madani. I am from Germany and of Iranian descent. I have recently joined the DACH team at Resello/Pax8 as a Cloud Generation Specialist (CGS). I am currently studying Economics at the University of Konstanz, and I live in Konstanz, a city in the south of Germany. I am 27 years old.
In my free time, I love talking about sports. I like watching soccer and basketball. Another thing I really like doing is playing the piano. When I don’t have to study, I usually hang out with my friends, spend lots of time by the side of the lake nearby and try to enjoy my life.
What is one thing you cannot live without?
It’s the Japanese anime television series called One Piece that I started watching when I was 14. I’ve fallen in love with it as its narrative is so amazing. It’s a creative story about pirates, and the protagonist’s goal is to find the world's greatest treasure known as the "One Piece" in order to become the King of the Pirates. The series still goes on, and I watch it every Sunday when a new episode is released.
If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?
I’d get on a plane without paying for any ticket because I love traveling, and I try to do it at every opportunity.
What food represents your personality?
My favorite food is khoresh gheimeh, an Iranian dish. It’s a lamb stew, usually served with saffron rice. I like this food very much because it is so heavy that once you eat it, you feel full and can’t move anymore. My parents always say that this is the food for somebody like me – who likes eating and doing nothing else afterwards.
Gunay Mammadova, Marketing Communications Specialist
Hi! My name is Gunay. I come from Azerbaijan, a country renowned for its exceptional pomegranates due to its unique climate and geolocation (and of course, pomegranate wine). I spent most of my life in Baku, the capital city of my homeland. Then I relocated to Budapest, where I worked for about 2.5 years. I’ve been living in the Netherlands for eight months now, and I absolutely love it.
My professional life has been about everything marketing in the business consulting and education industries. Moving to the Netherlands opened a new chapter in my life and also, in my career. I’m new in the tech field, and I accepted this challenge with great eagerness. Based on my one-month experience at Resello/Pax8, I can confidently say that it has been an exciting ride and looks like a promising journey.
On a personal note, I love cycling in and around Amsterdam, traveling, exploring new places and creating content for my personal blog. I take great pleasure in reading fiction, philosophical and self-help books. I also enjoy doing workouts and meditation – this duo does wonders.
What’s something you think everyone should try at least once?
Living abroad! It brings lots of challenges to your way and eventually, opens up valuable opportunities. Living in foreign countries helped me connect with my true self. I believe it’s an invaluable experience everyone should discover in their lives.
What animal would you choose to be and why?
Definitely a house cat! I’d take a nap whenever and wherever I wanted, be curious, playful, gorgeous and independent – sounds attractive, doesn’t it? And of course, striking a balance between getting attention and having a personal space is what cats do purrfectly.
What is one word you use most often during the day?
“Sevirəm”, which means “I love” in my native language, and I started using it in the past months whenever I see someone or something that I adore and appreciate. Saying it out loud turns out to be truly magical.
