ONWARDS AND UPWARDS — THE CHILIZ TEAM GROWS AGAIN
As the beta launch of our product inches ever closer, we continue to build our team and add new team members to different departments across the business.
Yusuke, who joins the MarComms team, built his career in translation and interpretation where he thrived as a PR and Digital Marketer before realising the potential of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
So what inspires Yusuke about Chiliz? “Chiliz’s innovative solution to bring fans closer to the clubs they love (and vice versa) simply excites me. As a long-time football (and entertainment in general) fan myself, I am super stoked to be part of one of the greatest teams in the industry to help fans all over the world have a say in what they truly love. I also think that Chiliz is one of the few projects out there that really is scalable and has a huge potential to actually make changes in our modern, digital world.”
Dilara joins the MarComms teams as a Regional Marketing Specialist for the Turkish market. Dilara joined Chiliz from Monetum, a Swiss-based fintech company, where she was a blockchain marketing specialist. She first became a fan of Chiliz and the Socios.com concept at the 2018 Malta Blockchain Summit. “Socios.com gives the fans a voice, a chance to be more than a fan. It’s a brilliant hybrid bridge between sports and blockchain and I am proud to be a part of such an innovative project that I truly believe in,” said Dilara.
A huge animal lover, Dilara has a cat named Dobby, is obviously a Harry Potter fan and a chocolate coloured Labrador named Pepper.
Joining the Chiliz front office, Marie Claire previously worked at Evolution Gaming. “Everyone here seems to love their job and there is a very healthy approach to achieving a good work-life balance,” she says, adding that the good energy she felt in her first interview has remained. In her free time, Marie Claire enjoys time with her friends, cooking and quality time with her son.
Also a former i-Gaming employee, Carlos joins as a Backend Software Engineer and loves the Chiliz concept. “I believe Chiliz will give fans of any sports a way to truly get involved with their teams.” Carlos also loves the nice “work environment and fantastic team.”
The Marketing Team has also welcomed Altug, who has joined as a Marketing & Business Development consultant for the Turkish market. So what inspired Altug about Chiliz? “I believe Chiliz is one of the rarest blockchain companies out there; Chiliz will be the savior of the industry because we will introduce crypto and blockchain to millions of football fans all over the world. This is pure adoption at its best.” Altug coincidentally had also drawn up his own idea about integrating the football industry and blockchain technology in his thesis for his Masters degree. He is also a self confessed FIFA and Football Manager addict.
Joining the Tech Team, Mateusz is a Backend Developer, who started his journey in Web Development back in 2005, when he created his first personal website. He has a Masters in International Economics and worked for a number of healthcare related start-ups and a global travel company before joining Chiliz. So what does Matesuz love about Chiliz?
“It’s great location in Malta, and the company’s unique working culture. I think that working in a positive environment within a new, and very innovative team is something that every Engineer or Developer appreciates.”
