Where trust and respect are guiding stars
Artur grew up in the Armenian mountains, in the crossroads between Asian, Middle Eastern and European values. From this melting pot he brought a saying that has had a great impact on his choices in life.
- We used to say: “A polished stone will never stay on the street; someone will pick it up”. I was fueled by those words and have ever since used my curiosity to learn, develop and explore. My journey took me all over the world. But at some point, I started to look for a place where I could settle down. Where I could be myself, both trusted and respected. A place where people are the most important asset, a place where every opinion matter. That is how I ended up here at If, where these values are not only on paper, but they guide how people think, act and behave.
Five years have passed since Artur started his career in If’s tech community. Years that have involved both professional development and given Artur the opportunity to grow as a person.
- It’s easy to thrive within your role at If, Artur says. We are given enough freedom. The boundaries are wide and allow me to create things that both make me proud and produce value for the business. I’m trusted in my role and have my development in my own hands. I’m never micro-managed.
