Market Dojo are very excited to introduce Marcin Caban, the business’ latest team member! Working in the Business Development department, Marcin joins the team with over 20 years of experience with a multicultural and multi-domain experience. Marcin has experience from CTO for a large governmental agency in Greece to CEO of a small IT start-up in India. And now, using his skills and experience, Marcin has joined us to help Market Dojo develop to the next level.
After seeing the job ad, the first thing I did was naturally to go on the Market Dojo website. I found there an introduction to what the company does and who Market Dojo is. But more importantly, I could directly register and experience the eSourcing tools offered by the company. I am not from a procurement background, and after seeing all the functionalities and how easy to use the tools are, I was convinced that they had a great product with a lot of potential. I then sent my CV, had my first interview, my 2nd interview, my 3rd interview, had a chance to have an in-depth conversation with the founders of the company, and had an informal chat with the other team members. And I just loved the great positive energy in the office and the displayed motivation to make a dent in the procurement universe.
I joined the team a few weeks ago, and I had a great welcome from all the staff who took the time to walk me through what I need to know in order to succeed. I have a business development manager role which means that I assist the people in the procurement departments to understand all the benefits they will get from using the Market Dojo tools, and given my profile, I focus mainly on the customers in the French-speaking countries and the Middle East.
I really love the team spirit. The atmosphere is profoundly serious when dealing with clients or presenting a demo to a potential new client. But then, when it’s time to relax, the atmosphere changes and becomes very light-hearted. It’s a great balance of working in an environment which is very committed to customer success whilst remaining fun.
The sky is the limit. The product is great, and our clients love it. We have fantastic references with many large and well-known companies among our customers, which empowers the sales team with a lot of credibility. And the market is still pretty young with a lot of companies still needing a robust eSourcing solution.
My 7-year-old triplets. But I am not sure my colleagues are prepared for such a tornado to hit the office 🙂
There is one book that changed the way I see the world. A book that I have read and read again, and each time it gives me new insights on how to live a happier life. It’s called ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants more from life.
My kids now know how to save songs on my phone. Last time, they changed my ringtone to a nursery rhyme. I had a few interesting looks when it rang in front of a customer 🙂

I am a Beaver Scouts’ leader, so every week I am organising adventurous activities for the young kids. And when I have some spare time for myself, I like hiking, paragliding and scuba diving.
Over the years, I am lucky to have travelled to over 60 countries. One of my favourite countries is Iran. It’s one of those places where you first arrive loaded with all the preconceptions fed by the media. But once you start visiting, talking to people, you realise how culturally rich the country is, how friendly the people are and how delicious the food tastes.
