She tells us what she likes most about working at Estateguru and how a career in field hockey has prepared her for the challenges of the fintech world.
How long have you been part of the Estateguru team?
I joined Estateguru in May 2022, but thanks to a very sophisticated onboarding process and our amazing Co-Gurus it feels like I’ve been here for a much longer time.
What’s your mission at Estateguru?
When I started, my initial mission was to push German marketing to the next level and establish our brand in the German market. Since October, I’m Head of Group Marketing so now I also coordinate pan-group marketing activities while still taking care of German marketing.
Estateguru’s key values are growth orientation, boldness, freedom, honesty, determination, and empathy. How do you experience these values in the company?
It’s not just ok to say what you think at Estateguru, you are even encouraged to do so and share your insights and experience throughout the whole company. Our Gurus reach for the stars daily and while doing so we both grow and learn.
But for me, the most important value at Estateguru is empathy. Growing involves making mistakes which, especially in the business world, often leads to blaming other people for them. Here we stand by our mistakes and others will empathise with us instead of simply judging us. And this finally leads to the boldness of every single Guru to reach for the stars fiercely without being afraid of failure.
What do you like most about working at Estateguru?
Most importantly, there is a pet channel in Slack ;-).
On the business side, I love to work with so many professionals from different countries and with different backgrounds so that there is not a single day where you don’t learn anything new here. These pros are not only good at work but also great company to have fun with. It makes working so much easier if you are surrounded by people who give you energy instead of draining it from you.
Tell us something interesting about yourself. What do you do in your free time?
I used to be a field hockey goalkeeper for over 30 years and played in the first German league for quite a while. My most important learning from these times is that everything is better and easier with a team – which can be directly transferred to business life. Although I retired from this, I’m still into sports like running, yoga and fitness.
Besides, I’m a huge nature and animal lover and enjoy being outdoors taking long walks and exploring the world.
My third big love is music and I even managed to record a CD with my former band singing and playing the flute at the same time (taking multitasking to a whole new level).
Why do you think exceptional talents should join Estateguru?
If you want to grow quickly and learn a lot while having great personalities around you, you should definitely consider becoming a Guru. You can really have an impact here and will be able to see the results of your work daily.
