After graduating from FH JOANNEUM, I started my career as media manager which took me from Kleine Zeitung in Graz, via a marketing agency in NYC into the startup world and now to WeWork in London.

The best experiences in my job
WeWork is in hyper-growth. We double our member base every year. Successfully entering markets and running advertising campaigns across so many European languages and cultures (even some I don’t know), makes me very proud.
How I found my current job
I was headhunted after already working in the startup industry in NYC for a couple of years.
What I learned for this job during my studies at FH JOANNEUM:
Hard skills like basics in marketing, statistical measurement and legal basics. As well as soft skills like cross-cultural management.
Job prospects in my field
The market for marketing managers with digital and data background is huge, especially if you’re willing to work in an international environment.

About my job
My job requires me to be very numbers and detail focused whilst not losing focus of the bigger picture. Working in a hyper-growth startup means you currently need to think about new/better ways of approaching tasks. It is a very challenging but rewarding work environment that offers you to learn very fast.
