Hey everyone 👋 I'm Guido X Jansen and I joined Spryker last month as your brand new Global Busi
Hey everyone 👋 I'm Guido X Jansen and I joined Spryker last month as your brand new Global Business & Technology Evangelist, which basically means I hope to be talking a lot to you all 😄
I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself, where I'm coming from and what I'll be doing at Spryker :spryker:
And of course you can ask me anything ❓ you want.
I have a background in psychology 🧠, usability and website optimization (CRO) 📈 and I’ve been working in the E-commerce industry ever since leaving university. I've always done a lot with community building/ evangelism 📢 both online and offline (think creating community portals, organizing events, (un)conferences). The last decade my involvement was mainly with the Magento e-commerce platform and - until joining Spryker - I was also part of the independent Magento Association Board.
I'm not here to talk bad about "competitor" Magento, but to give you some context (I know you want to): the last few years with Magento - especially after being taken over by Adobe - I knew: this is not going to last... 📉 A lot of people left (both the company and the community) and the energy was dwindling. It's still a good platform for some use cases, but I do feel that we're on the brink of something quite different. The ecosystem that Magento was released into (in 2008) is now very different, both for companies and consumers. I actually think the products are so different, Spryker and Magento aren't really competitors anyway.
I was already following Spryker for some time and when our co-founder Boris (who I met at a Magento conference back in 2010) asked me to join I didn't have to think twice. I truly believe that this is THE commerce platform for the next 10 years and just like a decade ago I'm feeling this buzz ⚡ and huge potential and it's incredible to talk to merchants using Spryker and seeing how it unlocks new possibilities and sometimes even completely new business models for them. It’s like experiencing the rebirth of commerce all over again and I’m all here for it. 😎
I look forward to connect with you! 🔗
