Visionary Ländle Native Thomas, who was born and raised in Vorarlberg, was interested in innovative business models since he studied International Economics and Business Studies at the University of Innsbruck. While he spent a year studying abroad in Madrid his interest in the Startup world increased. Following his time there, he did an internship focussing on affiliate and content marketing, already preparing himself for his future at Webgears. His love for healthy food eventually led him to co-founding GymTea and PeakBar, two organic food brands. After selling the two brands in 2017 he was looking for a new challenge and joined Webgears as Business Development Manager.
Curious, goal-oriented and passionate about Business Development, that’s how Thomas ticks. He believes it is essential to perfectly understand business models and to permanently question them. “As a part of the product department, I try to constantly improve our portals in Germany, the UK and the US in terms of monetization and our partnerships with white labels.” Besides this, Thomas tasks include ensuring and improving affiliate tracking and both testing and planing landing pages. Other than that, he also assists in growing business partnerships. “A current challenge definitely is the strong competition against white labels of other media houses and publishers”, he stresses.
A young, international team of smart and motivated people s one of the main reasons why Thomas loves working at Webgears. With more than 10 different nationalities, it never gets boring in the office. Moreover he adds, “What I enjoy in the daily business is that the work can directly affect the company’s revenue. So small changes can really have a huge impact in the long run.” He attributes that to the flat hierarchy and the accordingly fast decision making processes at Webgears. “In my opinion this fosters a pleasant working environment.”
HEAD OF PORTAL MANAGEMENT
Sports-Crazy Coupon Hunter Dan, who grew up near Springfield, Massachusetts, home of the Basketball Hall of Fame, should have become an athlete. And indeed, this American is certainly crazy for sports. From baseball and basketball to American Football, Dan is an ardent supporter of all the professional teams in Boston and likes to play sports himself – he loves football above all. It is no wonder that he moved to Europe as part of his degree while studying at Northeastern University. Dan studied International Business with minors in German and Marketing and fell in love with Germany during a study-abroad semester in Reutlingen. Afterwards, he was able to combine his interest in marketing and his enthusiasm for sports during an internship at the global adidas headquarters in Herzogenaurach.
In Love With Berlin Eventually it became clear: after his graduation, he would return to Germany. More specifically, to Berlin: “Berlin is an awesome city, with plenty of diversity, an endless offering of things to do and lively start-up scene,” he says. And because he can indulge in his passions here: “I’m a big fan of brunches, going out with friends and crawling the city in search of discovering something new. There is no better place for that than Berlin.” In 2014, Dan joined Webgears as one of the first employees in the Berlin office of the company. He is now responsible for overseeing all of the company’s global portals, spanning the US, UK and German markets. “Every day, we work hard to dig up every possible source of new deal and coupon content for our users, so that they can save while shopping online,” he says.
Daily Journeys of Discovery This is not the only challenge Dan currently faces: “Every market, in which we are active, has its own unique aspects. Understanding how each market is shifting and what customers are looking for when shopping online are crucial for maintaining the best possible coupon portals,” he says. “What I like most about my work at Webgears is that everything we do has a direct impact on our daily business and the overall user experience of everyone visiting our sites,” Dan continues. “As a team, we are responsible for continuously improving our offering of top coupons and deals day-by-day.” Dan is particularly enthusiastic about the work atmosphere at Webgears: “Finding and diving into new challenges is really easy to do. It is unique in that there are frequent possibilities to further develop, use and improve my existing skillset, as well as have an active influence on how we work and develop as a company.”
Fun-loving California girl, Sydney, was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, studied and majored in English rhetoric, writing, and literacy at Arizona State University. Since earning her degree, content creation and development have been her main career focus. She had the amazing opportunity to work as an ESL teacher, in Shanghai, China, creating and developing educational content for adult learners. After that, she began her role working as a content writer for a small family-owned business in the US, in an effort to gain the brand more online visibility in the midst of the pandemic. This role challenged her into creating content strategies in addition to creative blog-style articles for the company’s website. She then moved to Berlin and began working for Webgears in 2021.
As an energetic and adaptable Content Manager at Webgears, she maintains and writes content for all of the US portals. Since starting her position, the content and SEO team has begun working more closely, as they have learned that the two disciplines go hand-in-hand. She now has a large emphasis on ensuring that all of our content is written to serve both the user and Google. This proves to be quite the challenge because users are our potential customers looking for information online that help them in their shopping process, while Google is machine scanning our sites to determine whether our platforms are reliable resources to display in search engine results. Finding the balance between writing content for both real people and a machine is a hurdle Syndey faces on a daily basis but she says: “nevertheless, always having to evolve my writing and develop new ideas keeps me on my toes!”
Being open-minded and a team player makes Sydney love the challenges she faces at work and allows her to never be stagnant. She explains that “regardless of the project, I must always approach my tasks creatively, and as a creative person, this makes work extremely enjoyable. I also always have opportunities to learn new skills in my field to further develop my expertise. Similarly, I absolutely love my team! Whenever challenges arise, I have someone to go to for support and I am constantly learning from those around me. Webgears is filled with skilled, knowledgeable, and kind individuals, which makes for the best company culture and work environment.”
Curious and eager to learn Philip grew up in Austria’s second smallest state and home to Webgears, Vorarlberg, and was already showing interest in technology early during his childhood. “What started with messing around on the computer – most of the time resulting in breaking stuff”, he laughs, “continued in studying computer science at the FH Vorarlberg, where I learned how to develop actual running software”. Philips journey with Webgears started while he was still a student, when he worked part time next to finishing his degree.
From student to Lead Developer He finally was able to start as a full time developer and since then has been growing professionally. “Nowadays, I am responsible for all kind of technical decisions our development team takes, which is a way more creative task, than you would think at first”, he explains. Philips goal is to make sure that the software and technical stack is both representing and supporting the business objectives. In collaboration with his team, he tries to create future proof projects, that will help the business grow even further. Next to planning upcoming projects, caffeine-addicted Philip is also still involved in writing, testing and debugging code on a daily basis.
“No week is like another” , he adds, “there are different challenges every week and therefore, our team has to come up with all kind of different solutions, so work is never boring”. This leaves enough room for growth, one of his most favourite parts of working at Webgears. “We learn new things every day, which makes us better developers”. What he appreciates even more, is Webgears support in further developing his skills by sending him to trainings and conferences. Because Philip believes, most developers need to get challenged in order to get better.
