Hi, My name’s Christian and I’m one of the Sales Managers here at DoubleCloud.
I started with the company back in December of ‘22 with one of the smoothest onboarding processes I’ve ever had; everyone was so helpful and wanted to get in touch to welcome me to the company.
Prior to Doublecloud, and over the last twenty years, I must have done everything you could possibly do working in sales, from selling waste wood and plastic injection molds to bull semen (yes really… would I make that up?) but it’s SaaS software sales that I enjoy the most!
I made the decision to join DoubleCloud as I wanted to experience a bit of that start-up mentality I’d heard so much about.
None of your corporate structures where everything is set in stone and thinking outside of the box is discouraged; I wanted to help shape the GTM strategy, bring in my experience to make an impact, not just on the organization, but also on my customers' growth journeys.
Start-ups offer that; fast decision making processes based on data and experience.
Your voice is heard and you’re constantly surrounded by skilled, motivated people… I love it!
Outside of work I enjoy doing all the normal stuff.
Seeing friends and finding interesting new bars and restaurants to try (and believe me, Prague, where I am based now, is full of them).
I also enjoy skiing and snowboarding, swimming, Formula 1 and when I get a minute, the occasional good book and beer to relax with.
Something that might surprise some of my colleagues is that, before I entered the wonderful world of sales, I actually used to build houses from scratch (except the plumbing. Plumbing I know nothing about!).
I also enjoy hunting near my hometown in Germany as well as in Scandinavia.
Finally, to round this article off, the marketing team thought it would be fun to ask me if I had to host a dinner party and could invite any three famous people, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
To keep things practical, I think my first guest would be Gordon Ramsay (and cheekily see if I could get him to take care of all the food)… plus he’s really funny.
After him I’d invite Machine Head so we’d all have some music we’d enjoy listening to (or at least me and Gordon would) as my last guest would be Edgar Allan Poe.
Ever since I started reading his works, I’ve been fascinated with meeting him.
