People behind 3D’ is a blog series on individuals who make CubiCasa products and services what they are. Directly or indirectly. These people are our customers, partners, employees, and idols. Our first interviewee is Petra Paalama from our Finland office.
Who are you and what do you do for CubiCasa?
I’m Petra Paalama and I work in our production team in Oulu Finland as a Quality Assurance/ Customer Service Manager. This means that I make sure that our customers will get their 2D/3D floor plans in the best quality and in time.
What is the best part of your work?
Everyone at CubiCasa is very truly interested and excited about their work. It is great to see how things are developing and how driven people here at CubiCasa are. We have a fun, innovating and skillful team and I am glad to be a part of it.
What brought you here?
I became interested in CubiCasa because I am into interior design. I decorate my own home, fix and tune old furniture and collect pretty and practical objects. Moreover, I like light, simple lines, classic items, and natural materials. Also, I read tons of interior design magazines and blogs and gather ideas for my own home.
Floor plans and spaces are of course a part of this world and 3D models especially, not to mention virtual designs where you can really see empty spaces come to life and you can be creative. I have become more and more interested in the VR world after I started working at CubiCasa. And I can tell you, the enthusiasm for 3D and VR is very contagious. I already bought my own Google Cardboard and drew a floor plan for our new apartment we’re moving into.
Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
Hard to say exactly because so many things are happening right now at CubiCasa. We are developing and growing so fast that my work description might be something totally different than what it is today. But that’s the beauty of working in this industry. The progress keeps my work motivating and interesting and I am constantly learning new things and skills. Maybe I would like to be able to be even more creative and also work even more closely with our customers.
