Maptionnaire is turning 10 this year! 🎉 We decided to ask ten questions from the people who work hard to put the map in Maptionnaire. This week, you can learn more about who Krista is and what she does at Maptionnaire.
PS. Don’t forget to follow Krista’s takeover on Maptionnaire’s Instagram! (And pps. you can find the previous takeovers in the highlights.)
1. Who are you and what do you do at Maptionnaire?
My name is Krista. My title is communications manager, and I’m responsible for communications and content marketing at Maptionnaire.
2. What is your typical work week like?
I write and edit posts for our public engagement blog, edit our customer stories, update our website, curate our newsletter (remember to subscribe!), create content for social media (you can find us on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter), brainstorm about campaigns with our sales team, organize webinars etc. etc.
3. What’s your favorite dish to have for lunch?
It depends what mood I’m in. But I do enjoy Vietnamese food a lot! Spaghetti & meatballs (Finnish style) are also my favorite. 🍝
4. Who is your role model?
I’d have to say my mom. She’s a tough lady, and (nearly) always in a good mood.
5. What do you like most about your work at Maptionnaire?
I love that we have a culture where there is no such a thing as a bad idea. We live, we learn, and everyone is encouraged to say what they think.
6. What’s your favorite feature in the Maptionnaire software? What do you like about it most?
It’s super easy to use! (+ you don’t need a separate mobile app to reply to a survey)
7. What’s your favorite hobby?
I’m in an amateur theater group where we learn about acting and improvisation and usually at the end of the year perform a play. I love it! 🎭
8. What are your favorite places in cities? What do you like seeing / experiencing when you visit a new city?
Coming from a city surrounded by two big lakes, I love the water. My pet peeve is visiting graveyards (can you call that a pet peeve?). In general, I like to just walk or bike around and see what the city and its people look like.
9. What would you like to see more in cities of the future? What is your dream city like?
I’d love for cities to be places where people feel comfortable and where residents can be creative in creating an environment that’s made for them (a place I recently discover in my neighbourhood is Keran Hallit, a site where an old warehouse facility has been re-imagined, and there’s now space for sports, for graffiti art, for breweries, cafes etc.) I’d like to see cities with less cars and more enjoyable bicycle routes and effective public transportation.
10. What greetings do you have for our blog readers?
As the editor of this blog, I’d be super happy to get a message from you about what you’d like to learn more about in our blog. Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have an idea! 🙂
