Andreas Silva takes a lot of pride in what he and the rest of the Referential team do. As an employee of three years, he’s extremely dedicated to his work. Andreas insists no other company can do what Referential does. He explained the level of detail that goes into each task, and how the team goes through a lot to provide powerful content and input for each client. As an individual he offers a wide range of skills; he’s fluent in Spanish, possesses a strategic mindset, is highly efficient, and delivers incredible work stamina. As cliché as it sounds, Andreas describes himself as being the kind of person that doesn’t shy away from challenges and it’s been proven to be true on many occasions. He’s known to be one of the first to step up and help with any given task. He has an incredibly active mind that’s constantly looking for where both he and the company can grow and expand in any way.
Despite his strong focus on work, he doesn’t neglect to recognize the family-oriented culture that he shares with his co-workers. Andreas recalled a number of amusing memories such as room escapes, happy hours, and other various out-of-office moments. He especially treasures the time last year spent traveling to Belgium and Singapore for video shoots. He loves getting to work with people from different countries and cultures.
There’s a certain relaxed and laid-back culture unique to Referential, which Andreas loves, that serves as the foundation for the office’s overall atmosphere, even with the tremendous amounts of work that’s being accomplished. The environment makes for an enjoyable and easy place to work.
Andreas makes sure that clients’ needs are met and does everything that’s needed of him. In return, he’s exposed to a wide variety of companies and industries that give him a better understanding of the business world. He made a point that the constant learning is one of his favorite things about working at Referential – other than the breakfast burritos from the restaurant next door! He always tries to give as much, if not more, as he receives.
He wants future and current clients to know that he may come off as quiet and laid back but when it comes to work he’s passionate, persistent and takes it very seriously.
When he’s not in the office, Andreas can be found coaching soccer, at the beach, hiking, wine tasting, or just simply relaxing. Alongside his hard work, the Referential team appreciates his good sense of humor and stellar poker face!
