Meet Michael Santos, Business Development Manager
Currently, I am an Inbound Business Development Manager. My job is to generate qualified and viable sales opportunities for our respective sales field team.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what led you to join Informatica.
Just prior to joining Informatica, I was proactively looking to make a change and move forward in my sales career. I was dissatisfied with several aspects of the existing job I was in at the time. Therefore, I applied for the Business Development Manager position, and I also happened to know a few individuals working here at Informatica, so I reached out. Shortly thereafter, I was brought onboard.
I have now been with Informatica for a year and three months. I can now say that Informatica is truly the best place and company that I have ever been a part of. It’s a culmination of not only the position that I hold, but the culture, the management team, and the dynamics of our BDM Team. The services that we provide are best in class.
What do you enjoy most about working at Informatica?
The thing that I enjoy the most about working for Informatica is the people. I truly love my colleagues, the leadership team, and the work environment. The culture that we have in the Austin office, and my overall job are just amazing.
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.
If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?
If I could be a superhero, I would be Superman. I’ve always been drawn to Superman. I used to pretend I could fly with a red cape when I was a kid. Superman also caught the hearts, minds, conscience and trust of all humanity on Earth; which has always resonated with me.
What advice would you give to job seekers looking to join Informatica?
I would advise people to do a little homework on what the position entails, and what duties are to be performed. Review our website to gain some insight as to what we do, and what services/products we offer. I’d also try and reach out to a current employee (if you know someone here), and have a conversation about how it’s like working at Informatica.
