Working at Oliasoft

Ole Schreiner - Chief Operating Officer

What are your thoughts on the new challenge you have taken on as a COO at Oliasoft?

Working with and for software companies and helping them evolve have always been the most gratifying and fun parts of my career. I have been given the opportunity to work with all the talented people in Oliasoft, one of, if not the most interesting software company in Norway. I have been given the chance to learn a brand new business and be part of a team, building modern software for the future. This is something I look immensely forward to!

As head of operations, what are the three main focus areas you believe contribute to obtaining a healthy and sustainable company in growth?

  1. Be agile, don’t let the increased administrative burden of your growing company delay your decision processes 
  2. Nurture the culture the company is founded on
  3. Always do your best to communicate properly

Previous experience

Worked a few years in the telecom industry including Telenor in the late 1990’s to 2001. In 2001 I joined Funcom and from 2008 I was the COO, also responsible for building up the operations in several offices around the world including Montreal and Beijing.

As an educational background, I have an MSc in Economics and have subsequently taken subjects in psychology, such as Meta Competence.

Other interests

In my spare time, I like to kitesurf and practice Nordic skating as well as downhill skiing. I also have a penchant for the stock market and like to keep up to date on various forms of stocks and investments.

Bonus question; What is your favorite tool for maintaining structure and progress at work?

My brain has always been my favorite tool, but now that I am joining the ranks as an adult I have realized that I also need supporting tools as well. There are too many good tools out there to single out one, but if I must pick one I will say Slack. Which totally sat a new standard for written communication at work when it came out in 2014.
