Meet Leni, our Head of Business Development. She’s in charge of expanding our partner network and growing our business across all markets.
How long have you worked at Joblift?
Since September 2018 – time flies.
What did you do before Joblift?
I studied Law, but quickly decided that I actually want to jump into the exciting start-up world rather than fighting in court. That’s why I moved to Berlin and worked for several incubators and start-ups like Rocket Internet and Quandoo.
What do you like best about working at Joblift?
Fruit basket arrival on Monday and Wednesday ;). Joke aside, at Joblift I’m working with amazing colleagues in a very professional and challenging environment. But the thing that I like most is the opportunity for every individual to come up with ideas and further implement them. The trust our C-level gives you from day one is very unique at Joblift and unfortunately not found very often in the start-up industry these days.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
Finding colleagues who want to go for a salad lunch with me rather than another “Kreuzberger Burger.”
What do you like about working in a Berlin startup?
Being surrounded by young, ambitious, driven and smart people who all have the desire and urge to build something unique.
Before working at Joblift, what’s the weirdest/funniest/most unusual job you’ve had?
That would be an internship at a law firm in New York, where I had to shred documents for 8 hours a day. My intellectual take away was rather small as you can imagine, but I became a really really fast “Shredder” – decided not to add it to my skills at LinkedIn though.
What did you want to be when you were a child and to what extent does your position at Joblift match this idea?
Always wanted to become an interior designer, because I love beautiful things, places & homes – Joblift match? 0% unfortunately, but I’ve decorated my desk with many post-its if that counts?
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want with you?
My fiancée (I hope he reads that), a desalination machine and maybe a satellite phone so I can call when I’m over the adventure.
