Job summary/responsibilities

I am mostly assisting with emails in the Community team. My main responsibility is to come up with new ideas for marketing emails (in terms of structure and content). Because of that I am doing a lot of experiments and A/B testing. Finally, I am working towards improving the behavioural emails workflow and identifying new tools that can help me do that.

General introduction/background

I am originally from Bucharest, Romania. I moved to the Netherlands (Groningen) about 6 years ago. Once there, I started studying Communication, Media and IT and I discovered that I have an inclination for digital marketing. I love figuring out how things work, and I tend to get really excited when talking about stuff that I like.

Key challenge/ Personal Goal

To learn as much as possible about digital marketing within an organisation that tackles relevant matters and nurtures personal growth. In my opinion, border-less and transparent education can really help make the world a better place and I find that motivating.

Favourite Studyportals element/experience

The company culture that is open to experimenting with new concepts.
