The team continues to grow. We are now recruiting in all areas: you can check our jobs page, if you are interested! All newcomers will be presented with a series of notes; we believe it is very important that you know who is behind Mailjet :-)
So Imane opens the show. We searched for our Community Manager long enough, because we needed someone who was both “a sharp communicator” and “passionate about technology, a bit geeky.” To learn more, read on!
Hello Imane. Welcome! I liked your multi-faceted profile very much; can you tell us more about your background?
I have taken a somewhat unusual path: I am a journalist by training, both literary and scientific. To be precise, I studied philosophy, physics and chemistry. I felt it was important to look into the sciences in terms of epistemology, all with journalistic rigor gained during my internship.
So, how did you get into Community Management?
I worked as a web journalist for a long time and I blogged quite a lot. I’m also a heavy Twitter user (@Moom_light). Through events and consultation projects, I became totally drawn into the wonderful world of web communication!
Why us? Why Mailjet?
When I learned that Mailjet was recruiting in my area, it was obvious to me. It just rang a bell. Or “Pow” it hit me just like in the movies. Firstly, I hate large ossified structures. 20 validation steps to post “good year” on Twitter? No thank you. I prefer human-sized companies, innovative and promising.
In addition, I really need professional recognition. It is crucial for me to effectively participate in the growth of the company I work for. Also, I thrive on new challenges, and working for Mailjet requires very specific knowledge in very different fields, such as marketing and technology. I have to expand my field of knowledge every day and this is a real pleasure.
What will you bring to Mailjet?
I am very attentive to my customers, they will always find me available to speak to, and I will do everything I can to address their needs in a timely manner. I am passionate about producing dedicated and informative content that will help our clients in their steps towards optimisation.
Mailjet takes up a lot of time, certainly, but what do you do in your spare time?
I have practiced gymnastics for years. Besides that, I love ruining the benefits of sport that I practice by preparing cakes. I’m addicted to sugar in all its forms.
Projects for the short and the medium term?
Successfully complete my trial period and adopt a dog.
Thank you and take note that it may be you the interviewer next
