Are you interested in meeting the people behind the ParkMan app? Our Inside out section is a series of blog posts that show you the awesome people behind the ParkMan app.
Our team of talented individuals work every day to ensure that our mobile parking solution is the best thing that’s ever happened to parking and we wanted you to meet the ‘Parkstars’ (our ParkMan rockstars) who are responsible for it!
This month’s Parkstar is Ema Dalikaite, our customer success manager in Lithuania. ParkMan was launched in Lithuania in September 2017. ParkMan was the first parking application available in Klaipeda, a beautiful city of 155 000 residents on the coastline of Lithuania.
Hi Ema, It’s great to start the series with you! Could you tell us a little bit about yourself and your role at ParkMan?
I am Ema Dalikaite, and I live in Vilnius, Lithuania. I am a proud member of the ParkMan team.
I started as an Account Manager in the Lithuanian market, and then my title has been changed to Client Success Manager. My job entails customer service, marketing, public procurement, project management, and sales.
My typical workday can be quite different. I can have various projects, some tasks that need to be solved, and meetings to attend. I have a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Then, I walk my dog and turn on the computer. After work, I like to do some sports or read books.
How did you first learn about ParkMan?
At first, I had no idea what Parkman was. I came across the job ad in Glassdoor. The ad caught my attention, and I started to google about ParkMan. That is how I learned about Parkman and developed an interest for the company.
What type of challenges have you faced working at ParkMan? And how have you solved them?
One of the biggest challenges for me was to work alone. Previously, I have worked in offices with nearly 100 colleagues on the same floor. However, very soon, it became clear that I was not alone at all. In fact, I am a part of a friendly team that is eager to assist me as soon as I need it. Therefore, our team solved this “mental challenge” of feeling alone.
Another challenge was the market itself because I did not have any previous knowledge about it. However, I am a fast learner. I just needed a bit of information and time.
What do you like most about your job?
Freedom. Freedom to set my work schedule accordingly. Additionally, I like that others always listen to my opinions.
What has been your favorite memory at work?
One of my favorite memories was when the second biggest city in Lithuania opened its doors for ParkMan. That day was filled with great excitement.
What about you? What do you like to do in your free time? What’s a fun fact about you that many people may not know?
I like to read books, play video games, and watch movies. Something many might not know is that I have a green belt in Jujutsu. 🙂
That was Ema, our one-woman army helping support our Lithuanian consumers and parking providers!
