Nowadays, marketing roles aren’t as simple as it used to be, especially in startups. While it used to be all about matching the right people with the right product at the right price, it has gotten a little bit more complicated. We talked to Ervina Lutfi, a Product Marketing Lead at Mekari about her role: the challenges, the rewards, and what it’s like to work in Indonesia’s leading Software-as-a-Service company.

If there are any lessons we learned from our conversation with our CCO, Sandy Suryanto, it’s that important to stay close to our family in our efforts to persevere and improve during these hard times.
