Profile

I am an outstanding team player but I am not afraid to take the bull by the horns. I try to be as independent as possible within my scope of work, and consider myself to be a self-starter. I am curious and love to learn, particularly about new tools that can ease and accelerate task performances. I am fluent in English, and keep brushing up my German.

What am I searching for in a company?

Flexibility and independence. Good and helpful colleagues. Athmosphere where we can grow together and be each other's guides and mentors.
