A good company is driven by a quality product. A great company not only has this product but is driven by a team that shares the same visions and goals to keep moving forward. At Monocl, we take pride in our remarkable team of kind and talented individuals who continue to make a positive impact on a daily basis. Today we would like to introduce our very on Felix Jansson! Take it away Felix!
Name: Felix Jansson Title: Head of Business Development
Why did you decide to work for Monocl?
I was absolutely amazed by how Monocl was leveraging cutting edge technology to make a meaningful impact in the Life Science industry. I was immediately drawn to the game-changing insights that help new treatments get to the market faster and into the hands of the right patients, that really lured me in.
Aside from having an interesting product, the deciding factor to work for Monocl was the phenomenal team. As soon as I met them I felt I had to be part of this. They are a bunch of really, really smart yet humble people who were on a mission to change an industry vertical!
What do you find to be the best part about working with Monocl?
My colleagues, without a doubt. I’m surrounded by a team of extremely talented and result-driven people. It is incredible to see what a group of driven people with a strong shared vision can accomplish.
I also highly value the freedom to explore and learn new skills. If you are a keen learner and are willing to put in that extra effort, you will never be discouraged. You will thrive.
What is one thing your colleagues would be surprised to know about you?
We have a ping pong table at the office, what kind of tech company would we be if we didn’t, right? I’ve established myself as the office champ, competed for and won quite a few free lunches. However, none of my colleagues know that I’ve trained and competed at a high level for 10+ years. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.
What do you think makes a great work culture?
Short decision paths where everyone gets the opportunity to implement their ideas and make an impact. We take great pride in being an incredibly fast-moving company, the ideas of everyone at Monocl are paramount in order to keep evolving at such a high pace.
Having fun and not taking yourself too seriously. You only live once, life is too short not to have fun at your job and with your colleagues.
What do you think Monocl provides that other companies don’t?
I believe there are three things that separate Monocl from your average company:
- A work culture that encourages freedom to explore and promotes professional and personal growth.
- The rare chance to be a part of building something that can positively impact the lives of others.
- A sense of purpose with a tangible opportunity to make the world better through technology.
