Hi, my name’s Adwi and I work for Doublecloud as a recruiter, speaking to all you awesome people who apply for our open roles.
At the time of writing this I’ve been with Doublecloud for just over three months and I have to say, I’m having the best time!
The onboarding process was smooth, I got to meet many of my new colleagues as well as learn about DoubleCloud’s values and culture, whilst also being shown exactly what our managed ClickHouse® service could offer our end-users.
Before DoubleCloud I was working on my Masters degree in Human Resources, whilst also working part time in peoples analytics and talent acquisition (doing a job like this has always been a dream of mine).
I chose to work at a start-up like Doublecloud though as the opportunity seemed really interesting. I wanted to be able to help grow something from the ground-up, help recruit a team that would be perfect from the start.
Now, I may be biased as I helped recruit a lot of DubleCloud’s staff, but I have to say that one of my favorite things about working here has to be the people.
They’re all super talented and what they do but they’re also all really friendly. At a company with staff in the US, Israel and across Europe I was a little worried about forming bonds with people but the opposite is actually true and I’ve made some really good friends here in a really short amount of time.
I’m based in Berlin (working from home and our Berlin office) but outside of work I like to try and keep life interesting.
Whether that be going to a live art show, finding a hidden jazz club in the city somewhere or just getting on the train and heading off to a random location to find an interesting bar or restaurant… I love exploring!
My summers are usually filled with traveling around Germany, heading to concert after concert as I adore live music… In fact last summer I was in Hamburg for RHCP and Frankfurt for Lauren Hill.
As you can probably imagine, I’m also in the middle of planning this summer’s concerts as well.
I have to say, I’m not a big fan of techno music so haven’t really explored Berlin’s nightclub scene but I do love the beer… so the number of beer gardens in the city is heaven for me.
Something that I think would surprise my colleagues who only get to see how organized I am is how artistic I can be in my private life.
I used to be an art student and love to sing.
Rounding this blog off, the marketing team asked me if I could organize a dinner party for any three celebrities, alive or dead, who would they be and why?
My first choice was easy. I’d pick my great grandmother. She suffered from dementia when I was little so I never knew her like older members of my family did but I’ve always been told how dynamic and fun her personality was so I’d love the chance to spend an evening with her. I just feel like she’d have interesting stories to tell about my family’s history.
Next I think I’d have to invite Thomas Sankara. I think discussing politics with him would be fascinating, especially in the context of Africa.
And finally… I’d invite Colin Farrell. He’s just hilarious and I think he’d be great to have a beer with and really keep the dinner party entertaining!
