Meet Olivia Gardiner, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition, Human Resources

My role is the Head of Talent Acquisition for the APJ region, with a team recruiter based in Japan. I look after the end to end hiring process from opening a job requisition to negotiating an offer and my stakeholders are all over the globe – which makes it culturally interesting! 

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what led you to join Informatica.

I joined Informatica in a regional role nearly 4.5 years ago.  My broad industry experience over the last 15 + years, plus the fast-moving interview process here seemed like a great match.  Everybody was very passionate about the brand, which made it an easy decision for me to join the company. 

While my job keeps me pretty busy, I’m also Mum to two sporty boys who are 10 and 12.

What do you enjoy most about working at Informatica?

The people - first and foremost. I was ‘sold’ on the role based on the culture being described as working with people who are like ‘family’. A lot of those people are still here, and it’s a great place to get things done!

Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.

  1. I’ve recently joined the Orange Theory fitness program out of the US which is based on high-intensity training (HIIT) and heart rate efficiency.  It’s a lot of fun and I like to mix up my training.  
  2. In my spare time, you can find me on Coogee Beach in Sydney, patrolling as a volunteer surf lifesaver.  I completed my Bronze Medallion 6 years ago.
  3. I love watching my boys play water polo and rugby throughout the year, and am very proud of their achievements!

If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?

If I could have any super ability, it would be to have a superhuman power to keep the people we love with us a little longer.

What advice would you give to job seekers looking to join Informatica?

My advice would be to join us now!  The APJ region is growing fast, and our success is your success.  Also, I like candidates to do their research about why they want to work for Informatica - be proactive about your career!
