What’s been the most successful moment in your career?
The most successful moment of my career has been to co-set the growth strategy for BlaBlaCar's first two Qs with my team this year and meeting all the targets so far. BlaBlaCar is currently present within 12 countries (anything from the UK over to Russia) and is growing rapidly in all of them. Growing fast and efficiently is a constant challenge, and it is an incredibly empowering feeling to view a company as disruptive as BlaBlaCar overcome market challenges in all of these European countries.
What is your stand out skill?
The reason I am doing my current job is that I am half Spanish, half Austrian, raised in Brussels and currently living in the UK. This means that I am confident and happy to interact with the seven BlaBlaCar teams working from Europe's major capitals.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Still working in tech, having a more technical background as a growth hacker. I will hopefully be leading my own company, putting forward a very disruptive product.
