Meet the team – Marta Ondrésik, Senior Product Manager
Time to celebrate the people that make Pando special.
Meet Marta, our Senior Product Manager. Like everyone at Pando, she is integral to our mission to connect healthcare for everyone. However, her thought-provoking and constructive sensibilities bring a uniqueness to our workplace.
It’s time to shine the spotlight on our team. We had a chat with Marta about her career path, the highs and lows, and what led her to join Pando.
Can you tell us a bit about your career path to date, and what led you to this point?
“I am a trained biologist. My ambition to study biology, originally to focus on animal psychology, had led me to first doing a PhD in regenerative medicine and later to digital health. While academia was a wonderful experience that shaped my thinking and work ethic, I hoped to work in an environment that is faster paced. I also feel that my impact is just so much bigger in my current role than it used to be when working in the lab.”
What challenges have you faced along the way?
“The big challenge when moving from academia to the industry, especially to a software company as a molecular biologist, is always that first step. Who will trust your ability to do the job without having the record, the CV, the reference, etc. I was lucky to meet like-minded people on the way, scientists already working in health tech who had seen my potential and gave me that first chance.”
What would you say are the high points of your career so far?
“A high point of my career is not a single event but rather the journey so far. I am incredibly proud of working alongside the people I have been in the past couple of years. Working in an intelligent and ambitious environment where the individuals are joined on the same mission is very fulfilling.”
And your career goals for the future?
“My career goals for the future are to create products and/or services that make people’s lives better on a large scale.”
