Today it’s time to interview one of the guys of our Content department. We want to present you Tomàs, FXStreet’s Contributors Account Manager, who is in charge of contacting contributors to arrange collaborations while he manages their profiles. Tomàs has always a positive attitude, loves soccer and his motto is to do what you really love in life. What is more, and it might surprise you, discover how the Disney movie “Frozen” impacted his life.
Tomàs at work
My workday begins in a stand-up meeting where we discuss the issues of the day. My daily goals are to fulfill contributors in everything they need, manage their profiles to be always up to date and to look for talent that meets requests from publishers.
You have recently joined FXStreet’s team, what do you like best about your job?
The fantastic atmosphere in the team and the motivation for doing the best job possible. It makes the energy flow and makes me feel really good.
What do you like least about your job?
I don’t know if at some point I can answer you, but today I still can not say something that does not satisfy me.
If you were not a Contributor Accounts Manager, what would you like to do for a living?
All my life I made my passion my way of life, so that would include everything related to finances, animals, education, sport and so on. I can consider myself as someone versatile.
Animated gifs are often used in internal emails among collaborators at FXStreet… share with us a gif that you particularly like!
We almost all put our headphones on when working here at the office. What do you usually listen to?
I like varied music, from AC DC to Coldplay, Adele, David Guetta, Dire Straits and Fosters the People. Each style has its moment.
What are your favorite bands at the moment?
Well, I don’t know what bands are the most popular these days. Now my musical adviser is my daughter, so that would include the soundtrack from the Disney movie “Frozen”.
Any weird habit you have when working?
For working, I drink coffee, lots of coffee. But seeing any of my colleagues this is not bizarre, they are professionals in matters of caffeine.
What are the software, websites or tools you mostly use at work? What for?
Mainly office software, such as proprietary software to manage contributors, publications and graphics. You have to be prepared for everything.
Talking about websites, I check sites about financial news and team management. My wish is that contributors feel happy to be part of FXStreet.
Tomàs in his personal life
What do you typically do when you get out of the office?
I do all I can to be with my family and my friends. My children grew up so fast, so now I can enjoy some free time. Though, my kids tell me nice things!
Do you have a specific hobby?
I love to go fishing and I would love to play golf again but it’s a demanding sport that requires time. Also, I like to play online games to shot up a little action.
Two weeks ago I had to sacrifice my dog that accompanied me for 15 years. It was very hard for my family and me but it was the best because he had no quality of life. Apart from this, at home we have two cats, but cats are more independent than dogs.
What are your holiday plans in the upcoming months?
I have two traveling goals, but they will not be in few months. I want to go to Disneyland with my little daughter because her sisters have already been there and I would like to enjoy it with her too. Then, I owe a special and romantic trip to my wife to the Greek islands.
What are your favorite websites? Do not say FXStreet 😉
What is the last movie you’ve watched? Would you recommend it?
Frozen!! I don’t recommend it, only if you have little daughters. But I guarantee you that you may not see anything else in years…
A sport you like to practice?
I love all sports, though an injury prevents me practicing the most aggressive ones. At soccer, the best is the futsal playing.
Do you support the Barça? If not, dare to say which football team you support… if any
I’m a huge fan of Barça, it’s something in my heart. I do enjoy watching their football matches because they are absolutely the best football team in the world!
