Amie Stevense

Director, Talent Development & Engagement

What were you most excited about joining Mondu and now that you are seeing the company grow?

To be totally honest, there was one core reason I felt truly excited to join Mondu. As someone working in the People space – though perhaps an ideal for many people – it was important for me to lead the department of talent development and engagement in a company where I could respect the core values and behaviours of its leaders.

How would you describe your teams mission at Mondu?

My team’s mission is to ensure that the talents we’ve been successful in hiring can fulfill and expand on their potential, to optimally drive forward the overarching Mondu mission.

What is the most fulfilling part of your role at Mondu?

There are a number of ways to fulfill the above team mission, and like in any start-up, a million things that should have been worked on ‘yesterday’ already. Many initiatives we work on can take months to come to fruition. So, I tend to get excited by the small stuff. Is this person’s CV better today than when they joined Mondu? It’s incredibly fulfilling to see someone succeeding here. And by success, I mean that they are learning something new.

What is a fun fact about you?

I’m not sure it’s ‘fun’ but I’m quite handy with car mechanics! When I was younger, I had a 12-year old Renault Clio. To save money, every time it broke down (almost weekly), I’d repair it in my Dad’s garage with the help of a Haynes repair manual!

Sales Development Representative

What were you most excited about joining Mondu and now that you are seeing the company scale and develop?

I was excited by the though of joining a company where actions truly mattered, in other words: a company where individual actions had a disproportionate effect on outcomes. As the company scales and develops, I’ve come to realize that this effect is not solely due to its young age, but rather a deliberate choice made by the people and leadership!

Great colleagues, a great product, autonomy, having an impact. – Nothing beats the feeling of turning a no into a yes, while knowing that our solutions add nothing but value!

We have a really diverse workforce here and although we are only active in the German market so far, we have people from all over the world. Besides, it was appealing for me to be part of something big right from the start.

How would you describe your teams mission at Mondu?

Even if it is Sales, it is not Sales for me. It’s more about showing companies that processes can be simplified and that they can get a solution through Mondu that is indispensable in the B2C market. We work together in partnership, because we will only be successful if our partners are.

Who is your idol and why?

I don’t have one idol, I think you can take the good from many people and implement it for yourself. So a main part of the family is my role model. My parents, who support me in everything, or my twin sister, who helps people in the social sector and so on.
