Growing Up Fast: Welcoming Seven New Members to the Meister Team

With the holidays just around the corner, we’ve unpacked some of our gifts early  — a special delivery of new colleagues to the Meister team.  In this post, we welcome Madlen, Panna, Andreas, Sebastian, Julian, Nicolai and Ivan to the Meister family. 

Madlen Rapberger – Head of Business Development

Quick facts Age 34 Nationality Austrian  Previous Job Sales Director at Brainloop Describe your role at Meister in exactly 10 words. I identify exciting opportunities to grow Meister’s customer base even further! Hi Madlen! What is your defining characteristic? 

Interesting question! I’d say a healthy blend of curiosity and courage with an occasional spritz of silliness. 

What has been your favorite job to date? Why? 

The opportunity to launch a dedicated business development department at Meister is definitely one of the most exciting tasks I have been entrusted with so far in my career. What makes it particularly fun is that I get to work with super smart, highly-diverse, open-minded people. It’s rare to find a company that pairs all the perks of a startup culture with such a high level of professionalism and dedication. 

What single aspect convinced you to join Meister? 

If I had to choose one (there were actually quite a few), I’d probably say the founders, Michael and Till. Super smart and successful, yet very humble and down to earth.

How would you describe your working style?

I would say that I’m comfortable working on my own. However, I really like working together with others because I think it’s great to have that social connection at work. Having someone to give a little push, if necessary, can make all the difference.

I’m an intern, so mostly I’m looking to learn. I’m especially interested in how to identify business problems, how to choose strategies to address issues, and how to plan and execute those strategies to achieve these goals. I am hoping to gain real-world experience and an insider look into how a successful company functions, mostly through the feedback of my colleagues: I’ve already made great connections with many friendly, open-minded people.
