We love how Karolina references space in her story, especially her term for women who are strong and hardworking.
What’s your favorite Groupon memory?
The very beginning of my adventure with Groupon. At that time things were happening kind of fast. The very next day, after I’ve got the job, I was on the plane going to Berlin. I spent the next few days in the DE Groupon office, learning how to be a City Planner. It was a great time.
How many times have you been promoted?
Twice: both times by my then-managers.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?
My father always told me to stay one step ahead of everybody. It isn’t the easiest thing to do, but it works for me.
What was your first impression of Groupon?
That it is my place on earth. I loved the team of bright and ambitious people as well as the fast pace and startup vibe.
What has been your biggest accomplishment while working at Groupon?
The creation of the brand new role of the City Planning team and transitioning from planning cities to categories. This provides good value, as City Planners are more into category details and can be a great support for sales representatives.
Who inspires you?
I’m inspired mainly by women who work insanely hard and constantly prove their courage, talent, and strong character. I call them #kobietyrakiety, which literally means women who are as powerful as space rockets.
