A little story from Lisa

After I finished school, I went to live in Tanzania for a year as a volunteer.

Adapting to new environments, learning new languages, and getting to know people from different cultures have excited me ever since and have become part of who I am.

Lisa’s way to Syde

I studied Political Science for my bachelor’s and did an interdisciplinary master’s focusing on Economics.

I like working with websites because it allows me to use my creativity while being technically challenging at the same time.

I was impressed by the trust in employees and the opportunity to work remotely and independently and learn and grow within the company.

What do you especially like about your job?

I am looking forward to working with a great team of talented people and learning a lot.
