Life as a Senior Consultant in Tieto CEM

I have been working in Tieto CEM since February 2019 as a Senior Consultant. Read my story.

Olli Karioja / January 03, 2020

I drive and implement digital transformation for various business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) clients in omnichannel environments by combining domain and process competency with the best-in-class technical solutions available.

My interest forwards a career in digital marketing started already on 5th grade of elementary school when I built my first website. Later during my university studies majoring in marketing in the Oulu Business School at the University of Oulu I was experimenting with various blog platforms, web-analytics tools and social media platforms to see what they can do. After graduating, it was evident that I would pursue a career in digital marketing. After a few years of doing sales & marketing-related jobs I landed my first job in digital marketing with a title Growth Hacker that gave me an opportunity to specialize in marketing automation and in optimizing digital customer journeys.

It was clear that at some point I wanted to move from standalone marketing automation emails towards customer cases that involved the complete digital ecosystem. That’s when Tieto CEM contacted me and we started the talks on the next step on my career path. During the conversations with the likes of Head of Marketing Science & Salesforce, the team members from the Marketing Science & Salesforce and Head of CEM, it became evident that I wanted to be part of the team of dreams of CEM. The possibility to work in an organization that had under the same umbrella the complete digital customer experience suite sounded so fascinating that I definitely wanted to be part of it.

After joining Tieto in 2019, the time at CEM has given me a lot. In an organisation with no hierarchy, I have been thrown into situations where I would have not imagined to be 5 years ago. I have been given great responsibilities, I have been trusted with big cases and I have received thank you when it has been time to thank. People respect themselves within CEM and that makes the organization so unique. When you spend 37.5 hours a week at the office you need to feel welcome and that’s the feeling that I get when I open the Tieto HQ door at Keilaniemi on a Monday morning and the feeling has not changed when I close the door on Friday evening. The reason why I would encourage others to join Tieto CEM is the fact being that we appreciate people who you work with and everybody has also a good work-life balance. I personally balance my work with a weekly dose of various endurance sports.

Fun fact about me: I am a 2-time Ironpig World Champion (Terässika) that is a multisport event consisting of a super sprint triathlon and a litre of beer.
