Business development @ coherent
continuously working on side projects

About

I graduated from University of Bath in 2015 with a degree in International Management & German. 💼🇩🇪

I spent a year working as Head of Marketing at a social media network before joining Coherent as a Business Development Manager. We make software for managing coworking spaces 👩‍💻👨‍💻

I've made a bunch of products as side projects, most of which were made with no-code. Most of them made $0 revenue. And most of them are now no longer updated, or dead 💀

When I'm not making stuff, I'm probably playing video games 🎮

I love languages, psychology, cars, travel and creating stuff ❤️

WORK

I work for a startup called Coherent - a SaaS product for managing shared workspaces. My role is Business Development Manager which loosely equates to product development + project management + marketing + sales + customer support + QA - and I love it!

Coherent handles everything from bookings and resource management, to invoicing and payment collection. Our team has 10+ years experience running coworking spaces, so we know all about the admin issues faced by them
