1) What is your role at Plas­mi­on?

Be­ing with Plas­mi­on from the very first mo­ments, my role has ch­an­ged a litt­le bit over time. In the be­gin­ning, I was main­ly in­vol­ved in test­ing our tech­no­lo­gy in the lab. As we took the next step from pro­to­ty­pe to pro­duct, fin­ding re­lia­ble sup­pli­ers to ma­nu­fac­tu­re our so­phisti­ca­ted pro­ducts be­ca­me very im­portant. Sin­ce then, I have been re­spon­si­ble for choo­sing of and com­mu­ni­ca­ting with our sup­pli­ers and ser­vice pro­vi­ders and ta­king care of the who­le sup­p­ly chain from the pro­cu­re­ment of our sup­pli­er parts to the de­li­very and cus­toms cle­arance of our pro­ducts to our world­wi­de cus­to­mers.

2) What skills are par­ti­cu­lar­ly va­luable for your work at Plas­mi­on?

From my per­so­nal as­sess­ment, I am a per­son who li­kes to work into a task in de­tail and is not loo­king for the qui­ckest, but the best so­lu­ti­on. This mind-set was ex­tre­me­ly hel­pful for trou­ble­shoo­ting du­ring our pro­duct de­ve­lo­p­ment. Ho­we­ver, working with Plas­mi­on on es­tab­li­shing a sus­tainable busi­ness from scratch has taught me to fa­mi­lia­ri­ze mys­elf very quick­ly and un­der pres­su­re to the ne­ces­sa­ry de­gree with to­pics that in­iti­al­ly were very for­eign to me.
Whe­ther it was the sub­mis­si­on of EU-fun­ded pro­ject pro­po­sals or the pre­pa­ra­ti­on of spe­cial ex­port de­cla­ra­ti­ons or the su­per­vi­si­on of TÜV pro­duct cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons: ver­sa­ti­li­ty is one of the skills that I think is very va­luable in a gro­wing com­pa­ny.

3) What do you va­lue most about working at Plas­mi­on?

I am plea­sed about the con­stant pro­fes­sio­na­liza­ti­on of our gro­wing team and the new col­le­agues’ im­pul­ses from which I also be­ne­fit. Alt­hough we are still a very young com­pa­ny, we have es­tab­lished our­sel­ves in a very spe­cia­li­zed busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment do­mi­na­ted by lar­ge en­ter­pri­ses, which would never have been pos­si­ble wi­t­hout the gre­at com­mit­ment of all my col­le­agues. I app­re­cia­te the team spi­rit and that ever­yo­ne be­lie­ves in the suc­cess of our pro­ducts. That’s why I’m glad to be a part of Plasmion’s ex­ci­ting jour­ney.
