When did you become interested in technology? What first got you interested in tech?

I had quite some contact with technology as a child through games and different activities. But it wasn’t love at first sight. It never occurred to me to pursue a career in tech.

While most of my fellow students went to management consultancies, I took my first professional steps at digital companies like trivago and Google. Initially, I worked as an analyst with a focus on product performance analytics, where I learned how to build and optimize digital products and use available data for innovation. I was excited by the diversity of topics, the learning opportunities, and the high-paced working environment.
