Where did you start your career/where are you going?
I started my career as a developer, moved to sales/commerce and then onto general management as both COO and CEO. I no longer think about where I’m going, I’m very happy where I am personally, but I do look for companies and teams and where they can go. That’s what now motivates me rather than my own personal career progression.
I started my career in consulting but realized after some time that the lifestyle was not sustainable anymore for my dreams and goals. Via different roles in digitalization, I ended up in a startup that combines my previous experiences perfectly.
What first attracted you to your new role/to freelance, and why did you want a change?
The main thing that attracted me to the new role was the ability to actively shape the company that I will be working for. More than just the direction of the company itself, I was keen to bring in my perspective and experience to influence the company culture. These two factors add a lot of spice to my role.
And finally, how has/will the move affect your work/life balance?
In terms of absolute work hours, my workload rather increased. But due to more flexibility and meaning in my work, it does not feel that I am working more.
In your opinion, how does Movemeon differ from other platforms/agencies?
I loved browsing through a few very interesting openings much more than filtering a ton of openings to find the ones that really are suited for me. In my opinion, Movemeon has a similar value for the candidates than for the startups – time savings and connecting the right people.
How would you describe your experience as a member of Movemeon?
I felt treated really nice. When I had questions, I got answers in a timely manner and was even able to talk about my hesitations.
