Yana Sabeva: “Curiosity is an integral part of life”
Yana is a risk analyst at myPOS. She is also a traveller, biker and a fan of rock music and fantasy books. She enjoys team work and the opportunity to resolve interesting business challenges.
“The biggest misconception about my profession is that we are all-knowing,” Yana explained. Her job is to assess the company’s customers, and the risk that their business and behaviour bring. It’s a big responsibility because myPOS is a financial institution, which means that every new client has to undergo an exhaustive check. It sounds serious, but the job entails a lot of fun moments, both colleague- and client-related, Yana said.
Her favourite part is encountering unique business problems. According to Yana, the work is interesting because it involves new or little-known business models and regulations in different countries. She decided to join myPOS in 2019, driven by the desire to work for a company, which develops modern financial technologies and supports the growth of small businesses.
For Yana, success is the satisfaction you get from everything you do. “You can’t call it success if you don’t enjoy what you do” she said.
Here is what else Yana shared.

Curiosity is an integral part of my life and the work process at myPOS. Curiosity drives us to learn new things and develop in new, sometimes unexpected directions. I’m curious about a lot of things.
