5 Questions With…Saila Ylisirniö
5 Questions with Saila Ylisirniö
1. Where were you/what did you do before working at Seriously?
Before joining Seriously, I worked in HR at a Finnish IT company. My role covered everything from day-to-day people processes to project management to the implementation of new systems.
2. What is your current role at Seriously?
As an HR Coordinator in the Helsinki office, I try to ensure that everything runs smoothly for my fellow Seriouslians. I make sure that they always have support available, whether it relates to onboarding, recruitment, fostering company culture, performance and development, or administrative topics.
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
I’m excited to see the game development behind the scenes and to build processes that contribute to the success and wellbeing of our employees, who create the magical world of Best Fiends!
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
It’s hard to pick just one! I love JoJo’s beautiful colors, Gene’s hilarious expressions during stage one, as well as Howie’s elegance and his way of leveling up to a great wizard (he reminds me of Gandalf in Lord of the Rings). At the same time, I find Baby Slug tremendously cute, but challenging the Fiends is not so cute.
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
I like to take dance classes because they combine two great things, music and exercise, which give me good vibes and lots of energy. I also enjoy wandering out in nature, staring at the stars, and reading books in a hammock – these activities get me in a relaxed state of mind. And of course, getting to know new places and countries is always fascinating!
