Introduction to Leandro Vaglietti, one of our business development trainees
Tell us about yourself, your background, what made you join Parashift and what you do here.
In the last years, I analyzed business issues as a Junior-Controller, but I realized that I didn’t just want to analyze and give recommendations; I wanted to help drive the business forward and implement exciting ideas. At the moment, I am completing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the FHNW with a focus on Digital Business & Value Networks; I built up a hub of a technology-oriented network and think together with a friend, where we explore tomorrow’s challenges. I first came into contact with Parashift when I read an article on Forbes. I realized the importance of Parashift’s solution when I witnessed the time-consuming, paper-based processes.
You have only been with us for a few days; what is your first impression, and how would you characterize the culture we have here at Parashift?
It’s the speed that counts: Parashift is moving fast, and this dynamic environment is incredibly motivating. I felt like a real member of the team from day 1 and was involved right away and allowed to take responsibility. Decisions are made quickly, and if a mistake is made, you learn from it immediately and adapt. The organization is very customer-centric and focused on developing suitable solutions quickly.
What will be the biggest challenge you work on for the next few months and why?
Parashift has developed (and still is further developing) a brilliant solution: On the one hand, it delivers real added value to the customer, and on the other hand, the platform is also very advanced compared to the industry. The task now is to bring the ML-powered cloud platform closer to the customer with the right measures in the right verticals – to speed up their processes, cost-efficient, and very simple.
What does a paradigm shift mean to you, and why did you decide to join a crazy bunch and contribute to one yourself?
A paradigm shift is, in my opinion going from zero to one. Initiating such a change is challenging and requires courage and determination, but it is worth it. Guaranteed. It is fascinating to be part of such a transformation and contribute to getting us to this “1”.
How do you envision the next five years for Parashift?
Parashift has the potential to pave the way in the field of autonomous document extraction. With a great team driven to learn and improve, Parashift will continue to develop and expand the platform until it can cover any customer use case. I look forward to the moment when every tedious, expensive process is solved in a customer-centric way and every paper, every PDF, is transformed into structured data.
In case some of our readers are looking for inspiring book or podcast recommendations… What would you recommend and why?
As a keen reader and podcast-lover, I really like to share some of my favorite books and podcasts:
Books – all from different areas:
- “Creative Confidence” by David & Tom Kelley – for everyone who wants to unleash his creativity
- “Factfulness” by Hans Rosling – to grasp the development of the world a little better
- “Invisible Hands” by Future Society (Initiative of Think Tank W.I.R.E) – to question and be critical, to finally develop ideas for the future
- Harry Hole book series by Jo Nesbo – to switch off, but still very exciting
Podcasts – I will just share my favorite Swiss podcasts:
- NZZ Akzent – the daily dose (10-15 minutes) of exciting, in-depth stories from around the world
- Swisspreneur – a podcast for entrepreneurs and doers
- The Navigator Podcast by Yannick Blättler – the compass in a digital age
Woow we like your recommandations! We wish you to achieve all your goals among Parashift team 🙂
