Name: Philip Johannessen
Roll: Head of Branding & Social
What does your role at PriceRunner mean?
I lead the team responsible for our brand marketing, email and social media. Our job is to give those who have chosen to follow us good daily content in our various channels, as well as carry out broad marketing campaigns to show people how obvious it is to compare before shopping.
How come you started here?
PriceRunner is on a really cool journey where they have rebuilt the entire company from the ground up in recent years and I wanted to be a part of that journey. I already noticed the first contact that the culture is also incredibly wonderful here and to be able to combine it with a fantastic product you are really proud of is incredibly fun.
What can a working day look like for you?
Right now there is full focus on "shopping season" which is our high season and not least on Black Friday and all communication around it. At the same time, the team will grow so I chase new talent with light and lantern!
What is the best thing about your job at PriceRunner?
That it is so incredibly fun to go to work when the whole company works in the same direction and really believes in what we do - to create the world's most loved shopping comparison service!
The biggest challenge?
It happens so much that it is important to be on your toes! But it is more of an advantage than a challenge.
What do you feel most proud of in your work?
The product! It feels so obvious to use that I think it is incomprehensible that there are people who do not. But it just motivates me even more to spread the message!
How would you describe our corporate culture?
"Casually professional" - everyone is awesome at what they do but you do not notice how awesome they are before the delivery comes. It's a lot of work and little talk in other words - but always with heart.
Outside of work, what do you do then?
Spend time with family and friends, eat good food and ride my motorcycle as often as I can.
