It’s like a family …

I quickly found out that the promise of winning awards could not replace my love for Email Marketing. As the CXM at Striata I get to talk about, research, test, innovate and design great Email Marketing all day every day. To be given the freedom and resources to follow your passion is rare. I believe in Striata but even better, Striata believes in me – super cool feeling!

The reason I came back is because I loved what I was doing and it is great working for a company that has a great culture. When working for a company like this, colleagues become like family.

In a word: People. Good, talented, dynamic, progressive people who realise no-one is an island. Where friendly, helpful advice is always a wave of the hand away, all while challenging one to improve to levels you never thought possible. I’ve made more, better, longer-lasting friendships at Striata than in my entire life previous or since.

I left Striata to work in a traditional corporate environment and immediately felt constrained by bureaucracy, a lack of creativity and minimal innovation. Only then did I understand what it meant to be “just another number”. When I moved back to Striata a few years later I feel like my career finally took shape and I haven’t looked back.

… that you don’t want to leave

A true family environment that respects opinions, promotes idea sharing and really cares about the well-being of all staff members. I love the great people that I get to work with every day.

They are intelligent and hard working and above all, I’d consider them friends.

Striata is a great company to work for – it is constantly growing, but not at the expense of staff. There is a shared vision and we are able to see the difference each of us makes.

Mia P

Striata is a company that offers an enjoyable and engaging working environment. It offers many growth and development opportunities, the opportunity to learn and always find new ways to achieve the best results for our clients.

I do feel like my commitment to the work matters. Work is constant and aggressive, the hours can be long and the deadlines short, but always a learning experience.

But even more important, I always feel I am part of a much bigger family that always has my back
