Lisa is pursuing a new dream

Today is a little sad for the betahaus team. Our very first employee Lisa is leaving us to pursue a new dream: she's going to be a Surgical Technology Assistant. Lisa had many jobs at betahaus, but in the last years she was our back office manager, taking care of accounting, contracts, Human Resource, Team building, and many more things. She worked with us for 6 years and 12 days.

We asked Lisa about her years at betahaus and what she's going to do next. Before that however, CEO & Co-founder Madeleine has some good words to share: 

 

"Lisa was our first employee, I still remember that I was way more nervous during the interview than she was. She started working a few hours at the bar in the café, then she helped us building up the back office, and finally, she became the one person who knows everything about betahaus. She was there when we suffered from a defeat and needed a shoulder to cry on, but she was also the one with whom we enjoyed every victory, even the smallest ones. We're all very sad to lose her as a member of the team, but we think it's great that she's going to pursue a new dream, a new adventure. The new job she'll start fits her well - she wants to make a difference."

Hey Lisa, what were you doing in betahaus?

When I moved to Berlin in 2009, I was a veterinary assistant looking for a new challenge. A friend of mine, Geertje, told me about betahaus. She had just started working at betahaus as a bar manager, and once in a while I would go to visit her.  Back then, betahaus was only the ground floor and 3rd floor. I immediately liked the people and atmosphere of the place, so I started working a job in the café as well.

 

Some months later, Madeleine, Christoph and Max offered me to get more involved in the betahaus organisation. My job would become to support the founding team and to be in touch with members; hear them out, work on the feedback they had for us, and make sure everyone felt welcome.

 

betahaus grew so fast, and with every new step, there were new tasks and challenges; for the whole team, and for me too. I was learning about event planning, accounting, contracts, running a café, introducing new team members, opening new floors, and so much more. It's been a great experience, and especially because everyone always put faith in me 'getting it done', and everyone around supporting what I did, it taught me so many new things.

What new adventure are you going to devote yourself to?

I'm going to be a Surgical Technology Assistant. I'm fascinated by medical science and medical engineering. Additionally it means I'll be able to help people, and that's what I love doing. As a Surgical Technology Assistant, you take care of patients before, during and after surgery. You assist the doctor performing surgery, and you have the responsibility to make sure everything runs quick and smoothly.

What are you gonna miss most about working at betahaus?

There are too many things to mention. I'm sure sometimes it'll be the smallest things I'll miss the most. Being silly with my team mates here, laughing with them when I'm having a bad day.. But if there's one thing that has always been very special, it's that coming to work always felt like coming home. That's something very special to me. I'm so thankful for being a part of the awesome betahaus community! I'll miss you all! Thank you so much for the last six years!!
