Clavister is an interesting place to work at! I get to see the world, learn a lot about IP networking in live scenarios, meet and train people and still have periods when I can go home to my family each evening.
I'm working as CMO (Chief Mascot Officer) in the lounge area at Clavister headquarters.
Some heartless people claim I was adopted from a toy store in Stockholm. Truth, at least as I recall it, is that I was head-hunted by a local recruitment agency in Svalbard and decided to move to Sweden. The opportunities for cutting edge network security positions within the arctic circle were quite limited, I must admit.
My role as a 2,5 meter Chief Mascot Officer is to travel worldwide to fairs and other exiting events and to be Clavister’s interface with clients and partners. Although I moved around more frequently during the first years, today clients and partners from all over the world are visiting Örnsköldsvik and I get the chance to welcome them, embrace them and participate in photo shoots etc.
There is always something happening, multi-cultural and rewarding! At after-work events, I even get the chance to dance once in a while with one of the handsome team-leaders in R&D, which I appreciate a lot!
I'm a quite visionary bear, so when not on duty I spend many late-night hours on figuring out the next hot trends in network security.
