Cuttles Transitions Inesa Joksaite to Business Assistant Trainee

Cuttles Transitions Inesa Joksaite to Business Assistant Trainee, Cuttles

Danish SaaS company Cuttles is congratulating Inesa Joksaite for graduating from a marketing internship into a full-time role. Inesa has been announced as the company’s new Business Assistant Trainee, where she’ll work in marketing and SEO, with a focus on organizing content.

Inesa is Lithuanian and moved to Denmark in 2017 when she finished high school, looking for new challenges and opportunities. She says that in Lithuania, Denmark is known as the happiest country in the world, which also formed part of the attraction.

Inesa has recently graduated with a degree in innovation and entrepreneurship, and she’s also worked as a sushi chef while serving her internship with Cuttles. She lives in Odense, commuting an hour and a half between her home and work in Copenhagen, so she’s learned to juggle her commitments!

Inesa first found Cuttles when she was looking for an internship to complete her degree. Not speaking Danish was a barrier, and she found it hard to find an internship that suited her, but she was connected with Cuttles on LinkedIn.

"A random guy sent me a link to Cuttles searching for interns, so I sent in my CV and motivational letter. He also recommended me for CEO! I hadn’t considered Copenhagen before then, but I could tell straight away that Cuttles was a good match for what I’d studied."

She loved the learning experience of her internship, getting to experience a range of different marketing fields.

"I really enjoyed graphics and making animations, as well as research analysis and marketing. During those nine months of the internship, I’ve found out what I'm good at and where I can most help Cuttles"

What Inesa is most interested in is the changing pace of the digital world. She wrote her thesis in digital marketing and social media, and about how people working in those fields need to have broad skill sets in order to cope.

"Digital marketing is changing very fast and you can never stop learning. Algorithms in social media are changing constantly in order to improve users’ experience. I’m passionate about continuing to learn so I can further connect users and companies in the most efficient way."

“I like that it's changing. Some would see that as a disadvantage, but I like that you can always improve and that there’s always something new to learn.”

Inesa is an avid traveler, particularly backpacking. She is very thrifty when she travels, and once did a week-long trip to Jordan for just €200. She also plays piano and enjoys photography and cooking.

Cuttles Welcomes Jacques Nørbo as Startup Success Manager

Cuttles Welcomes Jacques Nørbo as Startup Success Manager

Jacques grew up in a small countryside town in Jutland, in the Western part of Denmark. When starting university, Jacques moved to Copenhagen, where his studies eventually led him to Hawaii. The sun, lifestyle, and beautiful scenery inspired him to start the soft-serve ice cream company Banana Cph, that up-cycled wasted bananas from the retail sector. About 1 year ago, Jacques left Banana Cph to seek new adventures. As the co-founder of a successful food/tech business, he learned that he had a very strong passion for entrepreneurship. In what Jacques describes as a little miracle, he found Cuttles. Cuttles checked off all the boxes - they had a fantastic product but were still a young and agile company. Also, Cuttles was a meta startup, helping other entrepreneurs, something that couldn’t be better in Jacques's view. In his role as Startup Success Manager, Jacques is responsible for a variety of things, but overall for helping other startups succeed. So far, the learning curve has been deep. The move from Food Tech to SaaS has led to a ton of aha moments, with Jacques mentioning that he has used a lot of his own experience as a founder to help other founders with similar problems. In addition, the CEO, Christian, has been very helpful in making the transition as smooth as possible. When Jacques is not working, he is playing a ton of sports. His favorites include soccer and running. However, Jacques is also a very creative person. To relax and recharge, Jacques produces his own music. ‘Producing music is like a painting. It is a clean canvas, and then you can let out your feelings from there’. When asked if the music is published somewhere, Jacques said that it was just for him, but friends and family definitely listened to it sometimes. Jacques lives in Copenhagen, Amager (only a short bike ride from the Cuttles office).
