team philosophy

Working for CatSwoppr means working for cats and cat people. Giving back to feline companions and feline lovers is our way of adding value to this planet. In the same way, we strive to provide our team members a lot of soft value. Having a track record of achieved goals is often a must-have for further growth in startups and scale-ups. Starters fresh from a university may not always get the chance or be able to show what they have in store. At CatSwoppr we mentor young culturally diverse starting professionals with various and different skillsets. We give them that unique chance to build this track record of measurable output.

 

Our team members have the freedom to move around the building blocks of the cat-centered services we aim to develop. They can choose which of their skills they like to sharpen, whether it is on designing and executing a Go-To-Community strategy, defining revenue models on the business development side, or fiddling with tech on the back-end to get databases straight and running smoothly.
