“When there are questions, it’s time to start thinking of answers. This is the culture of a lot of Finance teams, but we are building something unique and always strive to prepare in advance.”
I joined Goji in September 2019 as a Finance and People Executive. My work mainly involves monitoring financial operations within the company, producing financial reports, developing and improving company-wide KPI dashboards, designing and implementing controls and procedures and working closely with our auditors. Global businesses and finance teams sometimes struggle to automate and streamline processes, and this is what excites me about Goji as this is at the forefront of our minds.
Being curious, my desire to keep improving and my genuine interest in FinTech were big drivers of my decision to join Goji. Having previously worked with another start-up, I wanted to find a company that was building something disruptive and be part of a team where people help each other grow.
You need to seek discomfort and continuously be outside of your comfort zone to learn quickly, and this is exactly why I like the fun, fast-paced environment we have at Goji.
Institutional and high-net-worth individual investors have realised for many years that alternative investments have a higher return potential than equities. However, alternative investments are difficult to access and require greater in-depth knowledge to understand and evaluate each opportunity.
Goji is trying to solve this access issue, helping investors to diversify their investments and find high returns.
Goji really strives for inclusivity. Silly games during socials, regular company-wide lunches – either on Zoom or in the office before Covid became a thing – and the usual Friday late afternoon drinks.
Not only do we have a shared passion for what we do, we are even happy to work out together – whether in a gym or doing yoga exercises on Zoom!
Like many kids, I wanted to be a footballer. Little did I know that it’s one thing to love the game and completely different to be able to play it.
Having studied Math and Computer Science in high school, I then went to university and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Accounting and Finance. Lost and figuring out what I wanted to do, I went to work for a large company before jumping to a start-up where my passion for a fast-paced environment began.
With my competitive drive and interest in Finance, it was easy then to find out that I wanted to be part of the FinTech movement and join a company with a disruptive mission.
Play sports, go on hikes and travel the world. One of my lifetime goals is to visit as many countries as possible, live in a few places around the globe and speak 6+ languages.
You need the little hobbies and things you do daily, so playing the guitar, doing photography, reading a good book and journaling every day surrounded by friends would be a dream come true.
Our accounting year-end will come soon which means we will be entering a fun period of conversations with Goji’s external accountants and auditors. Before that, we will be designing and automating as many processes to allow us to make decisions quickly while working with ever more complex clients.
