What does your typical day look like?

Some days, even before 9 a.m., I’ll speak to a product manager in France, a sales rep in Turkey, a marketing colleague in Montreal, and a business solutions manager in Belgium. I’ve never had the pleasure of working with such a wide variety of people and cultures. It makes OneSpan truly unique in my career.

Not only does the company preach teamwork, but it really values it.
