What Have Politics, Sailing And Customer Management In Common?


Bendix is Account Engineer at Akanoo. His job is to help clients integrating Akanoo, explaining our JavaScript API, answering technical questions and running analysis for a better understanding of the tracking data. And apart from that? Find it out in his interview:

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

I started working at Akanoo in May 2014. Previously I worked as campaign manager for several politicians, as tutor at the University of Potsdam and as a freelance front-end-developer.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I like the variety of tasks to solve. A little developing here, some talking with clients there and fun with the colleagues everywhere.

And what do you usually do after work?

Every second day I go bouldering and climbing. In the summer, I love to sail on the adjacent Alster (or the sea). Besides, I regularly attend classical and jazz concerts.

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

That’s definitely Jacob since I have known him since secondary school and we for sure would have fun together.

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

I really like to take the ferry no. 72 from Landungsbrücken to Finkenwerder. One gets an awesome view over the harbor and the river Elbe with some fresh air around the ears.

Which apps could you never do without?

All the apps from Google for Android: Inbox, Calendar, Contacts and Drive.
