Meet Justin, Our Spur Of The Moment Globetrotter
WooRank is happy to announce a new member to the Customer Success team–Justin Borja. Originally from the Philippines, Justin joined us in Brussels from his adopted home in Malaysia in September.
Name: Justin Kyle Borja
Position @WooRank: Customer Success and Marketing Officer
Languages you speak: Tagalog, English, a bit of Malay and Chinese, and French (hopefully, we’ll get there)
Spent 2 decades of my life in the Philippines and felt the urge to step out of my comfort zone. I started my career in Malaysia, at the age of 20, doing business development and sales. An amazing country with great people that I now call my family. Now, I took another “leap of faith” by moving to Brussels, to experience an entirely different culture. I’m a risk taker by nature, who’s always on the lookout to try different things.
What’s something you’re surprisingly good at? Leadership. Might sound too serious and boring, but I like leading youth and directing their paths by sharing what little knowledge and experience I have.
What’s your favourite online time waster? Social media and online shopping.
Do you have any hobbies? Talking to people, especially strangers!
What is your guilty pleasure? Spontaneous trip bookings! And by spontaneous, I mean totally no idea what kind of country or place it is.
What excites you most about becoming a WooRanker? Its startup culture and the industry it’s in. The e-commerce industry has a lot of potential and through the tool that WooRank is providing, I feel like we’re contributing to something that will be a market leader in the near future. So many things to learn at WooRank! I love how our structure is flat, making you accountable for the things you do, and at the same time, giving you the authority to decide and be responsible for it. ;)
Do you pronounce .gif with a hard g or a soft g? Hard g, end of story.
