employee_interview_carole

Carole is Business Development Manager at Akanoo. She is responsible for establishing our tool in the French market and enrichs our office live with her French culture and regional desserts.

How long have you been working for Akanoo and what have you done before that?

Since January, and before I worked in France as a Regional Manager for a telecom company.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

It is very exciting to be responsible for the success in a country, to be in charge of the development from scratch. It is challenging and I really love that.

And what do you usually do after work?

I drink a beer. :P

Which colleague would you take with you to a lonely island and why?

This is a really difficult question, because everyone in the team has good assets to be a good partner on a lonely island… Well, I would say Moritz, I bet he knows how to build a solid wood raft!

Which attraction/part of Hamburg do you think you should definitely visit and why?

I really like the Hirschpark in Blankenese, specially in autumn. The colours are beautiful and the view to the Elbe is stunning. It is always a good place for a nice walk.

Which apps could you never do without and why?

Spotify because I can not live without music. :)

David is Business Development Manager at Akanoo. His aim is to expand our business into the UK and the English speaking markets. Here is his interview:

How long have you been working for Akanoo and what have you done before that?

I have been working at Akanoo since July this year. Before starting at Akanoo, I had different Sales Management roles with my latest being Assistant Club Manager & Sales Manager for Fitness First Australia in my home state of Victoria.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I am able to educate people everyday about new, innovative technology from Germany and show that there is an easier way to generate revenue through eCommerce personalisation.

And what do you usually do after work?

I like to meet up with friends and spend time outdoors with my Fiancee. I’m also a passionate gamer and spend time improving my skills by competing against others.

Which colleague would you take with you to a lonely island and why?

Oliver. He just looks like he could start a fire which I think is kinda important.

Which attraction/part of Hamburg do you think you should definitely visit?

I think Hamburg has a lot of hidden attractions, which tourists don’t have enough time to see. Like the cafe & restaurant culture of the inner suburbs. But if I was only here for 1 day, I would definitely see the Landungsbrücken.

  • Facebook
  • Twitch
  • Skype/Facetime
