As the Market Dojo team grows, so does our need for a more permanent customer support specialist. It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce that Chris Barrett has joined our team to fill this role. We believe this to be a great testament to our ongoing support and focus on customer success. Here is a short Q & A with Chris to learn a little more about him.
What made you apply to work at Market Dojo?
I saw an advertisement online and spoke with Adam Collins about Market Dojo, what they do and what it’s like to work for them. Everything I heard ticked all the boxes and I applied straight away. I have experience within Customer Services and my previous role was as a Real Time Analyst. I felt with this experience moving to Market Dojo was a no-brainer. The main reason I joined Market Dojo is that it is an ever expanding company and I am looking forward to being part of the journey going forward and hopefully becoming a success within an already successful company.
How have you found your time so far at Market Dojo and what have you found interesting?
I have only been with Market Dojo for a couple of days now and only have positives to say! The systems are all new to me but much like the Market Dojo software, all are easy to use. But most importantly everyone who works here is friendly and supportive (I have not even been bribed into saying this!)
What is the most unusual job you have ever had?
I used to work on Hastings Pier and was responsible for the smooth running of the 2p machines, what a summer!
What is the most embarrassing song you have on your phone?
Generally, my whole playlist on my phone is rubbish! I have the music taste of a teenage girl!! I consider myself a superfan of both 1D and Taylor Swift having seen them both live on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, the first time seeing Taylor Swift brings back bad memories as I broke my arm midway through her concert! But if I had to choose one song as the most embarrassing, it has to be ‘Westlife – Uptown Girl’!
What are your hobbies and interests?
I am a huge Portsmouth FC fan and travel all over the country watching them win. I also play a lot of football myself but the main sport I play is golf, nothing screams excitement like walking miles hitting a small ball into a small hole, but for some reason I enjoy it!
What is your biggest claim to fame?
When I was a wee 12-year-old boy, Wayne Rooney gave me a Jelly Baby! If you are wondering which colour, naturally, I chose a green one!
What’s on your bucket list?
Hit a hole in one during the day then watch Portsmouth win the Champions League in the evening. As this is unrealistic and will never happen as I am not that good at golf, my realistic choice would be to travel around Asia!
