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