Pája — can you introduce yourself to our users? 👱🏼‍♀️ Who's that active girl with a hiking backpack on? 🎒

Hey, are you ready for a riddle?
Lazy, yet spending 50 hours per month on sports & hikes🏃🏽‍♀️🚴🏽‍♀️🏋🏽‍♀️ & 🥾🏔⛺️.
Introvert, yet in the body of an extrovert. Anti-social, yet in need of particular people. Rational, yet dreamer with scenarios in a head that have nothing to do with reality but become it. Reckless, yet an over analytical mind. Cold or Fire. Black or White. All or Nothing. Who is it? It’s me, Pája, Chief Operating Officer at Spendee, and my role is to make things happen no matter what👋

What's your #myspendeestory? 👩🏼‍💻

April 17, 2017 is the date when #myspendeestory has started to be written due to David, CEO of Spendee, who asked me to jump on his “board” again and I said “Count me in captain”. ⚓️ Choosing Spendee was different in comparison with my previous jobs (i.e. project manager of EU Grants, Head of Financial Vertical on Comparison Website, Account Manager in Digital Agency) — it was highly emotional decision based on a feeling that I am going to join a team of friends with common goal to build something what actually can help me, my friends and other people. 😍 The best parts of my days in Spendee are the ones when I read stories of people who we helped already and I want to hear more of them!

You obviously train and hike a lot — why? What awaits you next?🏁

It is the cheapest therapy and makes you fit (Spendee Tip😉). The truth is that I like the person who I am during those moments. I think I get addicted to feeling empty, worn out, starving, messy. It makes me feel alive and happy — it’s that simple 🤷🏽‍♀️🙃 Despite the fact that I am a professional planner of Everything and someone who needs to have things under control I often do not know what will happen tomorrow and to what I will say “Yes”😅 A year ago, I would not have imagined that I would finish a 92 km mountain ultra trail running race, that I would celebrate my birthday in altitude of 5 416 in Himalayas or even that I would voluntarily go for run every morning😁 We forget the days when everything goes as planned but we remember the unexpected moments which make us leave the shelter and show the skin. Next? Who knows but I am looking forward to it🙂

If you were a superhero, what would be your superpower⚡️

Rolling my eyes quietly but it is not considered as a superpower, I guess? 🙄 So then, reading minds to know the true story of everyone who I care about.

Thanks for the interview Pája! Is there anything you’d like to share with the Spendee family? 💸

Do you want another riddle? 😏 15 people, thousands of your feedback and requests, hundreds calculations, countless sleepless nights, tons of drafts and wireframes, the funniest and also saddest brainstorming hours, eating kebabs as a punishment. What is coming out of it? Spendee 5 💚
