United Planet is more than just a company name.
We at United Planet stand for tolerance, diversity, social responsibility and the compatibility of family and career. More than 15 nationalities can be found among our staff. In the office, while traveling and when working from home: we want to increasingly work across a global network so that we can truly live up to our company name.
We put emphasis on a comfortable working atmosphere.
It is important to us that everyone feels at home here. Our success is based on a team of colleagues who pull together. We live an open feedback culture because strong teams build on different perspectives. Our altogether likable team ensures that fun at work does not fall by the wayside.
We want to expect but not overwhelm.
It is especially important to us that appraisal meetings take place on a regular basis. The aim here is work goal-driven, develop employees as best as possible and recognize their achievements. We need to constructively criticize ourselves again and again to continuously improve United Planet together.
tell us something about you.
My name is Brenda Jacomy, I was born in Paraguay, a small and charming country located in the heart of South America. Coming from a multicultural family gave me the opportunity to grow up between two countries, Paraguay and Argentina, and to embrace different cultures. Back in the early 2000’s I moved to the United States where I completed my bachelor’s degree in Science in Technology and lived until 2015.
While perusing a master’s degree in Project Management I moved to Madrid, Spain. At first, my plan was to stay the length of time I needed to finish my studies and then move back to USA, but projects do not always run as planned. Once I was done with my studies, love brought me to Freiburg and this where I now call it home.
What is your job at United Planet and what do you like the most?
I work in the area of Pre-Sales as a Project Manager for Demo Portals; I am responsible for planning and managing updates and new version releases for the different demo portals we offer. Due to the nature of my job, I get to work with people from different areas in my company as well as customers and partners.
The best part of my job are my colleagues. Since project management usually involves working with different teams, I have the opportunity to interact with many people. I am very grateful for being part of such a great team!
We heard that you’ve got an extraordinary hobby. Would you tell us more?
Besides travelling and exploring new cultures, places and food, the thing I love to do the most is diving. I discovered this passion not so long ago and I can’t go more than a month without going for a dive, either in a nearby lake, ocean or even at a swimming pool! I love to be in South America discovering some of the wonders of the world including the Iguazu falls in Argentina, Machu Pichu in Peru or wandering around Ecuador. And of course, I love diving there too!
