Meet Tatiana Sebby, Enterprise Account Executive from Chicago
To get to know 8x8’s culture and our employees better, we're traveling the globe to meet 8x8 employees and asking them a few rapid fire questions. To meet today’s interviewee, we traveled to Chicago, Illinois where we recently hosted an amazing Wrigley rooftop event for customers, partners and prospects. At the event, we chatted with one of 8x8’s Enterprise Account Executives, Tatiana Sebby, who has been working at 8x8 for three years. She answered a few questions, and we learned some new, surprising facts about her.
What is your morning routine?
At 5:30am, I’m having a cup of coffee with my husband and knocking out emails before the day really starts. Weekends, it’s about the same except I work in a nice walk with my great dane at a local forest preserve. Sometimes I even leave my phone in the car.
What is the best spot for deep dish in Chicago?
Easy. Pequod’s. That caramelized crust gets me every time.
What was your best moment at 8x8?
Tough one! We’ve had so much to celebrate so I could pick some wins, but I have to say the moments that are my favorite are when we’ve hit a stumbling block and how intensely everyone gets focused to solve for the challenge. That collaboration and the creativity which comes from those sessions is what is memorable to me. In Vik’s words, “People make companies and we are fortunate to have some of the very best.”
What was the last book you read?
Audible is my hero. Got a few going: Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss, Not Taught by Jim Keenan and Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office by Lois Frankel.
Do you have a favorite motivational quote?
“If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.”—Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop
What is one piece of advice for someone starting at 8x8?
Talk to everyone. Get to know our people, what they do, what motivates them and how you can help make their interactions with you easier. Will pay back in spades.
Thank you to Tatiana for her time and stay tuned to this blog for future employee interviews and behind-the-scenes at 8x8.
