“I love mixed martial arts, theatre, learning new skills, testing my limits, cooking delicious food, nature, science and talking to friendly people.”

Before hyrise

Gleb is one of those people who is difficult to describe in words. Originally from biotechnology, Gleb, with his innovative spirit, had many wonderful ideas, but had difficulty selling them. Life was tough, he shared a flat with his mother and the financial challenges seemed endless.

During the usual flipping through Instagram, Gleb noticed an ad from hyrise.

After a bit of research about digital sales, he was fascinated. He saw a great opportunity to bring wonderful products together with innovative companies. Gleb admits that he didn't have great expectations when he went through our application process. It seemed too good to be true.

But he had no idea that this would be THE turning point in his life.

Gleb's experience with hyrise

Hyrise served as a springboard for Gleb to showcase his talents and skills and accelerate his career entry into digital sales. His persistence and dedication paid off when he secured a position as “Enterprise Sales Development” at one of our trusted partner companies, Operations1.

Equipped with our onboarding training and support from his new employer, Gleb plunged headlong into the world of sales. Dialing phone numbers became routine as he aimed to help potential customers solve problems and bring them closer to the solutions he offered.

Gleb quickly became the top performer in his company. In addition to his cold calling skills, he was able to regularly secure important meetings with high-level business customers. His secret recipe?

“See every interaction as valuable, because every minute of your customer's time counts.”
