Can you tell us a bit more about your background leading up to Ogury?

I have worked in startups for the past four years, building up HR departments from scratch while always being a one-woman show. I was already familiar with Ogury since I had previously worked for a small Marketing Agency located in the same building two years ago. So, when I came across the open HR position, it jogged my memory.

Interestingly, towards the end of my leave, we ended up swapping offices with Ogury (we moved up because we didn't need as much space, and Ogury needed more), so I am pretty familiar with the office. 

What excites you the most about joining Ogury?

Being able to assume a generalist role in a global environment is significant for me. It marks my first experience in a larger company with entirely different processes and structures.

What’s your favorite part about working in adtech?

Well, having a background in marketing and having studied communications management, I find the creative aspects and strategic thinking behind adtech fascinating. Moreover, I'm drawn to the fast-paced environment inherent in adtech due to its business model—it keeps things exciting and dynamic.


If you could have one superpower to make your job easier, what would it be?
