Name: Erik Englund
Job title: Business developer
How long have you worked for Auka?
1.5 months, but it feels like I have been here for a long time. Everyone at Auka makes you feel welcome really fast!
Worst part about your job?
We are a company with so many visions and so little time 😉
Best part about your job?
Our products will be part of shaping the future of payments, and I will be part of shaping the future of our products.
What was your dream job growing up?
I told my grandma I was going to be a carpenter so I could build her a house. She still tells me how disappointed she is in my choice of career…
Who do you admire the most?
I admire many people. Elon Musk gets my one-paragraph of fame here though for his ability to make complicated problems simple, and for the total lack of respect for the difficult. He has taken serial entrepreneurship to the next level and instead become a serial disrupter.
What is your biggest achievement or what do you feel proudest of?
I really enjoy my life 😉
Give one prediction for ten years from now?
Electric self driving flying cars. It would be so awesome…
What one piece of advice would you give to others wanting to be a business developer
Search for and embrace all the interesting opportunities you get, if you were meant to be, you will get there
Anything else you think we should have asked?
Are you on track to ski at least once every month of the year this year?
