Meet Thu Tran, Regional Marketing Coordinator

I’m part of the Enterprise Regional Marketing team, supporting and executing on regional strategic marketing programs for the West and Central teams to meet Informatica’s sales pipeline and revenue goals.

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

I have been with Informatica for 3 years.  My journey began as a Big Data Business Development Manager promoting Big Data solutions, moving over to become a West Enterprise Business Development Manager.  Along the way, I was selected to be part of Business Development Leadership Council, and was promoted to be an Enterprise Regional Marketing Coordinator last November. 

I was attracted to Informatica because Informatica focuses on one of the most critical matters in our daily lives – data, and they’re great at it because that’s all they do and they do it well.  During the interview process with some of the leaders, I realized that it was not all about how much money that I had previously made for my previous employer or what I could do for Informatica, but it was about my experience, my career goals, and how Informatica could help me achieve that.

What do you enjoy most about working at Informatica?

The employees! They are very friendly.  I don’t only see them as my colleagues but also my friends that I feel comfortable sharing a lot of things with.  What impresses me most about the people here is that everyone is so willing to help each other.  There is no such thing as feeling afraid someone would steal your secret sauce to compete and be better than you here.  People always share best practices even from their small success, then we learn and celebrate their success. We don’t want to be successful alone, we want to be successful together because we’re one team.

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

  1. I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. While in Vietnam, I graduated from high school, and then came to Virginia for college in 2007 as a foreign student.
  2. I can speak 3 foreign languages – Vietnamese (native), Cantonese Chinese (fluent), and Korean (elementary).
  3. I love musical instruments! I’m really great with the electric keyboard and love playing it.

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

I’d be Superman because he always helps out others with a smile, and places other people before himself.  He can also maintain two identities – a soft spoken and caring person, and a fearless crime fighter who fights for justice.  Superman also has the power to jump far and fly all over the world, which I would love to have.   I love traveling, so having the ability to fly would save me so much money on flight tickets. 

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