DeepL. After graduation, I moved to Dublin and worked at Facebook as an account manager. I had a brilliant 1.5 years in Ireland and it was really exciting to be part of the Facebook during its rebrand into Meta. Being part of a huge company enabled me to learn a lot, however I craved the opportunity to be part of a scale-up and have a more integral role in a company.
