Meet Monocl - Linda Zandi, Account Manager

What’s your role at Monocl and what do you do?

I joined Monocl January 2019 as an Account Manager responsible for the UK and Benelux.

Why did you decide to work for Monocl?

Having a background in Medicinal Chemistry with a love for business, it was a no brainer to join Monocl. In my previous role as an account manager at a large biotech company, I dreamt of a product like Monocl in order to save time and work more effectively towards the universities. I wanted a product that could provide me with actionable insights, real-time info about influential scientific experts as well as information of the latest science in any area of interest.

What do you find to be the best part about working with Monocl?

Several things, such as my ambitious and sharp colleagues and the company culture. Our work environment motivates me to work harder while having fun days with a lot of laughter. I absolutely love being surrounded by smart and driven people who give more than 100% on a daily basis. Working in a startup company in an aggressive growth phase, everyone’s voice is heard, and you have an opportunity to affect its development.

What is one thing your colleagues would be surprised to know about you?

I am an open book, however one thing that usually surprises people is my love (obsession) for Harry Potter. I started reading the books when I was a kid and did not want to wait for the Swedish translation of the books, so I started reading them in English and learned the language as an 8-year-old. The love keeps going strong almost 20 years later to the extent that I actually have a Harry Potter tattoo.

What do you think Monocl provides that other companies don’t?

Great company with a fantastic product developed together with our customers, providing invaluable insights to make our customers life’s easier and help to advance medicine.
