In the first in the ‘Meet the Team’ series Spirable welcomes Ollie to the team. Get to know us better week by week as we chat to members of the team old and new about life at Spirable, what makes them tick and why Spirable is a great place to work.

Ollie joined Spirable this summer as an Account Executive in the Client Services team.

Where are you originally from?

I am originally from Essex in the UK.

Tell us a bit about your background.

For four years I studied International Business at Sheffield Hallam. During my third year I completed a 13-month placement at an American data company called NetApp. This provided me with great insight into the tech scene and it when then that I decided this was the sector I wanted to pursue after graduation.

How did you find Spirable?

I spoke in detail to a Recruiter about what I was looking for in a graduate role, things like the location, the type of company and the roles and responsibilities. They recommended applying for a role in the Client Services team at Spirable and here we are!

What do you like most about your job?

I really enjoy the exposure I get to a variety of sectors, as well as the opportunity to work with some of the world’s biggest brands and agencies. Working in a startup means that from the outset you are given a lot of autonomy and you can make a positive impact from the get-go whilst receiving the help and guidance you need throughout.

What is the most valuable thing you have learnt at Spirable so far?

I’ve learnt so much about the platform itself and how Spirable creates videos at scale before pushing them through to social platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

If Spirable had to choose a mascot what would that be and why?

A giraffe, as we’re head and shoulders above the rest. (Ba-dum-ch!! But seriously…)

What are your passions outside of work?

I’m a big fan of music and Formula One.

What or who inspires you and why?

What inspires me at Spirable is that we as a company are always striving for or achieving world-firsts. We’re at the forefront of our technology and for me that means constantly learning and enjoy what I do day-to-day.

Great to have Ollie aboard, look out for next weeks ‘Meet the Team’ as we introduce Myrianthi from the Tech team!
