Tech as a force for good
Who Am I?
My career has been guided by my belief that technology shapes our society and is a force for good if the technology itself is created by a diverse group of people. My academic background in Economics, Information Systems and Innovation informed this conviction and led me to scholarships for coding and entrepreneurship courses.
I launched my career as an early employee of Medallia, where I became a Program Manager helping household companies such as Generali and Avis Budget use data to improve the customer experience while reducing operational costs and increasing revenue at a global scale. Medallia became a public company in 2019.
Today, with Palantir and the onset of AI, the scope of my client's data-powered programs has widened to entire organisations who go on to include and improve their entire industry with our software. Today I focus on the deployment of our AI capabilities across industries, as well as growing our private sector work in the Middle East. Palantir became a public company in October 2020.
To live by being the change I wish to see in the world, I co-founded TechFace in 2018, community recruiter, and founded Girls in Tech - Switzerland in 2016, tech event organiser. I now serve on the board of both organisations that aim to close the Swiss tech talent gap while improving gender diversity in the sector. I also serve on the board of BluArk as a jury member for their annual startup funding competition.
Last but not least, to make websites accessible to even the smallest businesses, I created WaaS Websites in 2016: a better website service, for less. In 2023 I launched two businesses. Contraact AI for freelancers to quickly scan contracts, highlighting the standard parts, potential issues, and clauses that might not align with our preferences. Serene Support which helps busy professionals find and onboard remote personal assistants. They take care of all the time-consuming tasks, so you can finally have more free time for yourself and focus on what truly matters to you.

AI-powered operations | Team Lead
More than a decade ago, we set out to create products that would transform the way organizations use their data. Today, our products are deployed at the most critical government, commercial, and non-profit institutions in the world to solve problems we hadn’t even dreamed of back then.
Websites, differently | Founder
Today, websites are prohibitively expensive for small businesses. Plus, you're left feeling alone and handicapped with a website you don't know how to update. You have unpredictable, often high, costs of maintenance and have to keep track of at least 4 separate recurring bills. You feel trapped, confused and robbed. WaaS Websites puts an end to this: it's a better service, for less.
Community Recruitment | Board Member & Co-Founder
Recruiting needs to evolve the way retail has: towards long term relationships instead of transactions. That is, companies needs to build relationships with candidates based on a culture match long before there's a specific role for that person. TechFace helps companies like Deloitte, Fossil and Swisscome meet women in tech candidates this way.
