The Spotlight is On: Carla Macia
At Cien, we’re lucky to have a diverse, talented and passionate team! In this series, we meet a Cien team member to ask them what it’s like to work at an AI-first start up.
This week we meet Business Intern Carla Macia.
Where are you from? What brought you to Barcelona?
I was born and raised in a little town close to Barcelona. I enjoy living in Barcelona, because I can go from the beach to the mountains in a little amount of time. I also like the city life, because there are always things to do. My main hobby is figure skating. I used to compete up until 3 years ago.
Why did you join Cien?
I was looking for an internship located in Barcelona that allowed me to grow professionally and personally. And with my studies, Cien was the perfect fit. I really like startups. I find it super interesting that they build up everything from scratch. Moreover, the fact that Cien is using artificial intelligence caught my attention. I also value the fact that Cien has an international team.
Describe your role in three words.
Meeting point between HR and Finance.
What’s the best thing about your job?
Being able to learn from different departments, the international environment and the people that I work with.
What have you learned since you’ve joined Cien?
In your opinion, are the developments in AI going to take our jobs?
No, I think AI is going to help us to do our jobs better.
How do you apply the Cien core values in your day to day work?
I do my best when I work and I try to apply all of the feedback I receive.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
If it is not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes being upset about it.
