Working Student in Sales & Business Development
How did you find out about [at]?
I was looking for a company that would give me a deep insight into the acquisition activities related to Data Analytics/AI products.
Why did you choose [at]?
[at] offers the right combination of business and IT background with real-world expertise and in-house programming and development. I also have a keen interest in data analytics topics, in which I would like to gain more practical experience, which in turn I want to integrate into my aspired Master in Data Analytics.
What are you looking forward to the most?
The close cooperation in the sales team, especially at the quotation stage, which is hopefully rewarded with success.

Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Neu-Ulm and grew up in a small suburb in Kaiserslautern.
What do you do in your spare time?
