The Org Names Cirkeline Ask as its New Community Manager

The Org Names Cirkeline Ask as its New Community Manager, The Org

The Org has hired Cirkeline Ask as its new Community Manager. She will work out of The Org’s office in Copenhagen, Denmark, and report to CTO & Co-Founder Andreas Jarbøl.

In her new role, Cirkeline will initiate and build a strong internal culture for The Org as well as represent us in the Danish tech, startup, company culture, and transparency communities. She will also help out with a lot of the practicalities of running the Copenhagen office.

When asked about what drew her to the opportunity at The Org, Cirkeline said, “First of all I’m excited because I really love what The Org stands for! I’m fully on board with the company’s strong vision to live and lead transparency and the ambition to become the world’s greatest place to work.” She went on to say, “I’m so excited to be a part of a more social culture where your colleagues become your friends and you live and breathe for the success of the company.”

Cirkeline’s journey to The Org began in 2016 when she was hired to manage the community at a co-working space of 350 tech entrepreneurs. It was at this co-working space that she first met Andreas and Alexander Juhl Bendt (who now serves as The Org’s Head of Design). Speaking about her time at the co-working space Cirkeline said, “I really hate to brag but we won a few Danish Startup Awards, one (maybe two, I don’t remember) Nordic Startup Award and one Global Startup Award, all for ‘Best Co-working Space.’”

Her time at the co-working space came to a close and she joined Grandhood, where she helped build their internal and external community, but due to COVID, her role took a turn towards content writing, customer success, and customer support. Cirkeline deeply missed engaging with real people and leaped at the chance to join Andreas at The Org to do community and culture work once again.

Outside of work, she has released a podcast about luxury items and the histories behind them. “I’ve been wanting to do a podcast for several years but it was the endless hours alone during lockdown that ignited the creative part of my brain. We just released the season finale last week and we’re pretty mind blown by the loads of positive feedback we have gotten. So now we’ll start recording for season two next week.”

Cirkeline is a native of Denmark but has lived in both London and Lugano, Switzerland. Her preferred type of holiday is either road tripping around the US or escaping to a fitness resort.

Ryan joins the Org!

Ryan joins the Org!

We had our eye on Ryan for a long time. So to say we're thrilled that he is now joining the team is an understatement of our real excitement level that can't be contained on this page. He's come on as our Senior Director of Business Development, focusing on growth through outbound initiatives and partnerships. When we asked Ryan why he was excited about joining The Org he told us: "Everyone on the planet should feel exactly like I do right now when interviewing and then onboarding into a new role. Super excited, running full speed into it, no reservations at all. Knowing prior to starting exactly who you will work with, how the organization is structured, and ensuring values are aligned are impossible without validated transparency. I joined to help make sure this is a reality for everyone, everywhere." Ryan joined his first startup, Zoomer, as employee #2 and was the first executive hire in 2014 as their Head of Sales. He focused on the commercial side of the business growing revenue from zero to $1M+ and then scaled a team to $15M+ within 30 months. He spent the last few years with two startups focused exclusively on health systems within the pharmacy space, helping bring enterprise solutions to that market. "I've sold mature products and MVPs from B2C to mid market to enterprise. I love providing "voice of customer" feedback and working closely with product, tech, and operations teams." Ryan and his wife are blessed with two healthy children. They are young so he spends almost all of his time outside of work with them. He also sneaks away to the golf course now and then. His family recently found a church they are excited about and also spend a good amount of time at the local YMCA where both kids take swim lessons. Ryan grew up outside of Philadelphia and spent most of his years post college living in Philly. After kids, he and his wife moved to where his wife was from to raise them near the lake in Brookfield CT. Ryan, you've arrived. Welcome to The Org!

The Org welcomes Gustav to the team!

The Org welcomes Gustav to the team!

The product team is growing and Gustav joins as our newest Product Manager. His responsibilities cover testing ideas and iterating on them to ship features for our users. He is passionate about understanding people and enjoys diving deep into problems. He describes. his approach as: "I strive to look beyond tech and its solutions and start with people and empathy first." Why The Org? "It was the vision of helping organizations be more transparent. All the information you need and care about is available. Everyone is happy to share their work, experience and knowledge. For me, this transparency creates an environment of trust to be yourself and grow professionally and personally." Gustav celebrates our hybrid work environment. He can work from home to focus on deep work or decide to come into our cozy Copenhagen office which he goes on to say "people here are motivated to work at the office because of the social atmosphere, good work environment, and great office space. It's not because they are forced by company policies - now that is how to build a strong culture." Gustav comes from working in product and partnership positions at tech companies. Most recently, he was at Plant Jammer - a food waste app that inspires people to cook delicious meals with what they already have in the fridge. He also worked at the Danish startup YOUANDX - a transparent booking platform for keynote speakers and experts in various industries. Today, he is still part of YOUANDX on their product advisory board. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time in the nature and playing sports. "I enjoy socialising with friends and family, often accompanied by cooking a great dinner." Gustav has come to be passionate for growing his own food (albeit he claims to not be successful at it yet though we are sure you have green thumb potential!). During summer weekends, you'll find him planting seeds and watering sprouts. While he loves to travel, Gustav knows where home is and loves his life in Denmark. He currently lives in Østerbro, Copenhagen, and grew up just 20 minutes north of the city. We are so happy you are here and can't wait for all the fantastic things we will do together! Welcome to the team.
