Our business here at Commerce 8 has been growing and this means that our team has to grow as well in order to keep up with the pace. Ladies and gentlemen, now it is time to introduce our newest superstar Jonathan Fagerström.
First things first, who are you, Jonathan?
I’m just your typical tech-geek from Finland with a strong background in digital marketing and great interest towards e-commerce. I recently moved to Stockholm, Sweden to start my career at Commerce 8 as a Consultant.
Why did you decide to join Commerce 8?
Before joining Commerce 8, I worked in few different startups and I fell in love with the fast paced environment and the mentality of having to figure out things out on the fly. I made a shortish stint at Marketing Clinic prior to joining Commerce 8, and that’s where my interest for e-commerce really sparked. So, when I got the opportunity to join Commerce 8, I was thrilled and eager to start conquering this new era of e-commerce in the Nordics.
It’s no secret that we do more online shopping now than ever before and I think we are only getting started. In Sweden alone, online shopping increased by 15% from 2017 to 2018 and this year follows the same trend with a forecasted growth of another 15 %. If and when Amazon finally launches in the Nordics, we will enter the next phase of e-commerce and I want to be in the forefront of helping out customers getting on board the Amazon train, whether they want to do sales in the Nordics or on existing Amazon marketplaces or utilise the platforms advertising potential.
Three quick but tough questions for Jonathan:
1. Tell us a secret about yourself
Although I love everything digital and embrace digitalisation, I am a sucker for mechanical wristwatches. It’s just something special about having a device that works without a battery or internet connection and can still function perfectly for decades.
2. Music that will play in the office when you are the DJ
Oh boy, this is a tough one! My taste in music is too broad to define but probably a nice combination of 90’s hip- hop mixed with Brazilian disco and Dutch house music.
3. Favourite items to purchase online
Clothes, sneakers and tech stuff are things I purchase almost 100% online.
Welcome to the team Jonathan, we are delighted to have you on board!
P.S. We are constantly looking for new talent. If you think it is you who we are looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us and let’s take it from there.
