Tell us about yourself...
I studied International Relations at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences in North-Rhine Westphalia, majoring in B2B Marketing.
During my studies, I did an internship at a consulting company in Amsterdam, where I learned the first practical things in Marketing and had a chance to work in an international environment.
What is your role at transentis?
I am a digital product and marketing manager.
How long have you been an employee at transentis?
I have been at transentis since November 2020.
How does your morning start?
I usually start my day with a coffee. Then I check my tasks for the day in a working diary.
What kind of tasks do you usually have?
My tasks are very different since my role includes tasks from marketing and product management. I create content for social media, our website, and email campaigns. I also work closely with software engineers: we discuss upcoming tasks, I create tickets or tasks in Jira for them, then we discuss the tickets together, and then we also test the tasks together.
I work on internal projects in the company, which means that I am almost every day in touch with colleagues from different departments.
What keeps you productive and motivated throughout the day?
I like to start my working day early and set goals for the day. I get very energetic and motivated when I get done with my tasks and get feedback from my colleagues.
I like to work together with other people, and I am very productive when I know I have to deliver a joint result together with someone else.
