About you

You’re a creative music connoisseur as well as a proper spreadsheet geek. You love lists, sorting your personal Spotify playlists in a tidy manner, looking up that one sample you keep hearing, organise your record collection, and planning ahead (colour-coded calendars, anyone?). You initiate trips with your friends and make a great itinerary.

You thrive on autonomy and structure (efficiency, right?), always spot spelling mistakes and love being one step ahead. You take pride in having responsibilities, are extremely detail-oriented and focused, and know how to get stuff done in a fast-paced environment. You have a pro-active and assertive character, love going to gigs and influence your friends with the coolest new music. You are curious and enjoy meeting new people.
