Describe the culture of your company. Finning Digital is made up of a global team of diverse and talented individuals.We’re builders, innovators, and specialists with deep expertise in Internet of Things, data science, analytics, digital solutions sales, and digital marketing. We come from two worlds. Some of us are experienced Finning employees who bring customer and equipment knowledge while others know the startup world well bringing insight about the Internet of Things, data science, analytics, digital solutions sales, and digital marketing. But, we share one very important trait in common—we want to make things happen. Titles are a challenge to come up with—we all wear different hats because we own our contributions. But, if you’re looking for autonomy and share our “anything is possible” mentality, you’ll feel right at home! “Finning’s strong heritage is impressive and reassuring—not many companies can say they’ve been around for more than 80 years. At the same time, the way the business is embracing technology to stay ahead of the competition and support customers and employees in their success and productivity is inspiring. We’re being very pioneering and pulling together an incredibly diverse team of digital professionals.”– Alex Andrews, Marketing Manager, Global E-Channel and Brand What does your leadership team do to support/grow that culture?
