Hi Maia! Thank you for doing this interview with us and taking time out of your busy schedule. How are you?
Hi everyone! I’m great! Just came back from my holidays, so still trying to get back into routine, but with my mind relaxed.
First, can you introduce yourself and let us know what you do at Spreaker?
My name is Maia, I’m 26 years old (not for long), and I’m from Argentina. I work as the Community Manager for Spreaker in Latin America, spreading its news, contacting the community and working in coordination with Tonia, who gives me the guidelines to follow.
How did you start your job at Spreaker?
I was in Colombia on holiday, about to finish my studies in Community Management and looking for a job that allowed me to gain some experience in the field. I came across Spreaker’s job offer, applied and, after a week of testing, I started working formally.
Which Spreaker feature do you like the most?
I think the connectivity with social networks makes Spreaker great, because it allows you to share your audio content directly with your friends and followers. But also the mobile apps make it possible to broadcast from wherever you are, so those two features turn Spreaker into a very complete app to connect with the world.
Can you give us a few reasons why it’s great working at Spreaker?
Well, first of all, the experience of working with people I haven’t met in person yet is really interesting. Also, I’ve learned a lot so far and I know there’s plenty more to come, so that’s very exciting. I feel very fortunate to be part of this great team and this wonderful project.
Don’t worry Maia, I have a trip in my mind to visit you over there! Listen, do you have any fun memories that you would like to share?
Last year, Cris and I met at a bar in Buenos Aires, to work on Spreaker’s presentation for Social Media Week. It was about the 2011 Social Media revolutions and how the platform allowed the protesters to express themselves and communicate what was happening in their countries, so there was a lot to talk about. A drunk man that was close to us overheard our conversation and insisted on discussing the subject with us, constantly interrupting. At that moment it was annoying, but looking back it’s fun to remember that particular episode. Fortunately he left, and we were able to finish the job.
What are your favourite podcasts on Spreaker?
For those who want to hear something different, I recommend Garage Show from Frecuencia RU.
What are you crazy about?
I was born crazy! But I love gadgets. I realize that I’m a bit geek, but just a bit.
Where can we find you on the internet?

Muchas gracias Maaita 😉
