undefined My greatest achievement at Avangate so far is the extraordinary team that I've gathered around a great product. We're a happy enthusiastic bunch that uses all the secrets to create and consolidate business models.

Adriana - Chief Product Evangelist
undefined I have been working with Avangate since its beginning. I am really grateful that I managed to 'grow' and discover the hidden passion that I had for marketing. Avangate offers me exactly what I need: the possibility to create, improve and engage/commit. I find it really rewarding to learn and collaborate with the Avangate team in order to analyze and meet clients' needs to achieve success.

Alexandra - Avangate Corporate Marketing, Sr Director
undefined I am constantly looking for ways to improve myself, my work and the people around me. As a team, we always put ourselves into the user's shoes when we develop something for the Avangate platform. This way, our partners become our friends.

Black - Chief Information Officer
undefined With Avangate, I have the opportunity to assert my ideas with confidence which is really valuable as far as I am concerned. If you are passionate about a direction or strategy, your thoughts listened to, given due consideration and eventually, made true. Avangate is the kind of company which encourages creativity and self-assertiveness.

Ciprian - SW Team Leader
undefined I work with the clients: you make the customer happy today, but that means you're going to have to work even harder to make him happy tomorrow. You can have a really good day with a client or a partner, but you must do your best in order to surpass expectations. What I like about Avangate is professionalism and the challenges I meet every day.

Iulian - Key Account Manager Lead
undefined My philosophy in life is to treat everyone as they are my friends. I managed to build strong relationships in the industry and I like to think that every member of the Avangate sales team is a reliable friend for all of the company's partners.
