What attracted me to the tree?

From my very first interview, I had a great feeling about the tree. The people seemed genuine and the atmosphere was one of positivity and almost tangible ambition – the more I got to know the team the more my initial suspicions were confirmed.

In addition to this, the tree’s continually developing tech offering and open-minded, inquisitive approach excites me greatly, watch this space!

My experience

After completing my bachelor’s degree in Cape Town, I realised a quick career progression with a psychology and philosophy major was going to be more elusive than I had anticipated…Deciding I needed more opportunity (and sunshine) in my life, I made the move to London.

Having always been something of a technophile, I talked my way into a marketing role in a 3D printing start-up. Over the years I climbed the ranks and grew the site from a few hundred to a few million monthly users and transformed the platform to one of the largest of its kind in the world.

I successfully launched and grew the B2B offering of the company and worked with brands such as BBC, Barclays and Sony to help them understand this new space and develop cutting-edge solutions to further their growth.

Turning my sights on the tree I’m doing what I do best, building relationships, growing the business and having a whole load of fun!
