Meet the team: Estefanía González

It is the pleasure to introduce you the Head of International Business of Development at Geenapp, Estefanía González. She is goal oriented in nature and works very hard to achieve her goals day by day. She had dreams of being in a totally different industry, but ended up accepting an interview with Geenapp in the mobile app industry and loves it. Estefanía has worked very hard to climb up the company hierarchy and revealed more about her personal and working life in the interview.


Who is Estefanía González?

A 24 years old friendly, easy-going and talkative girl! Chai tea lattes and cookies are a favorite of mine in the office setting and after work I usually go to spinning classes, for me it is the perfect way to relieve stress (and burn off those chocolate cookies!).
I am also a bookaholic, I love classics (such as Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice) but I also recently discovered noir novels. I am passionate about reading as it takes me to a world of deep imagination.

What did you want to be when you were a school-going child?

I wanted to become a nuclear physicist! When I was a kid I saw a Bruce Willis’ movie where he met a woman who was working in a nuclear physics lab and he needed her help to defuse a bomb. From that moment on I was dreaming of saving my country. It was great to see my school teacher’s face when she asked what we want to do in the future and my friends had said they wanted to become vets, astronauts… I said “I want to be Nuclear Physicist and defuse bombs!”.

Did you progress in pursuing your dreams? Which university degree did you earn?

Well, finally I didn’t become a Nuclear Physicist… as I ended up studying Audiovisual Communication. The first year at university was a test for me because I really was not sure if it is that was what I truly wanted. Thankfully, I chose well and I enjoyed my years at university. I became involved with many internships since the very beginning and that made it possible for me to get a feel for different occupations such as a journalist, producer, events planner…

 So how come that you came to Geenapp and started to work in app promotion industry?

One day when checking LinkedIn I found an offer for Geenapp and I chose to apply without expecting much. I went for an interview with a positive mindset and I got the job!

 

‘I hope Geenapp can grow in all aspects and earn a great reputation with its clients. I want to encourage the personal development of each employee, invest time and sources in R&D to bring the light into the mobile industry. ‘

What was your knowledge about mobile industry before you came to Geenapp?

Nothing, literally. I had heard about Mobile World Congress and that the circulation of money is enormous. Luckily, if you want to work at Geenapp, experience it is not a must, the most important thing is the attitude. I always say that Geenapp has been for me a full-time intensive Master in Mobile.

What do you like the most about being Head of International Business Development at Geenapp?

I like to set goals and as I am talking to our clients everyday, I want to see good results. It is rewarding to see networks promoting that I have obtained because of the time I invested gaining them as a client. Additionally, I appreciate the Geenapp team – we are all young friendly people and get along very well.

When you are having such a family atmosphere in the office, do you sometimes organize pizza days? What is your favourite pizza?

Yes, we have pizza days! The last time I tried Cremozza al estilo Bourbon and I fell in love! But, BBQ and a coke are always a must for me!

Who do you aspire to be like?

I have my ideal aspirations from books, Jane Eyre and The Help have strong female characters that inspire me. They always follow their beliefs and do and fight for what is right for them. I also want to keep growing here at Geenapp as I started from the bottom but the management saw potential in me so I have kept working hard.

If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day who would it be and why?

I would switch with someone who is rich and does not have to worry about anything, but just enjoying the life at a private beach.

Where do you you see your career five years from now?

I want to see Geenapp and myself grow and achieve great things together. I want my department to expand and hire more people.

 

‘It is rewarding to see networks promoting that I have obtained because of the time I invested gaining them as a client.’

What is the most favorite event you have visited so far with Geenapp?

Mobile World Congress 2016 – it was my very first congress so I was really excited and I gained so much experience there even though I need to confess that it was stressful for me during the first day. I went  alone and had many meetings with Geenapp’s clients but it was a key event for me as it helped me to boost my confidence.

What is the most outstanding element of Geenapp for you?

Geenapp is very innovative startup. Many other agencies have a tendency to work with CPx offers but they are not really working properly. Geeanpp does it differently ­ we have the whole platfrom developed by Geenapp and we also have additonal services such as Quality and Anti-fraud systems to name a few.

What do you wish Geenapp to achieve in the upcoming year?

I hope Geenapp can grow in all aspects and earn a great reputation with its clients. I want to encourage the personal development of each employee, invest time and sources in R&D to bring the light into the mobile industry. My personal wish is to receive more feedback from our partners so that we can strengthen our relationships. I would also enjoy traveling the world and attending more conferences about App promotion.

What is the thing you have always wanted to do?

I want to travel to Japan as I love Japanese mangas and animes, my dream is to visit all the places I have seen in these stories.
Also, I would for sure spend a day in Ghibli Museum, the animation and art museum of Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli, one of Japan’s most famous animation studios. I highly recommend you to watch “Spirited Away” and “Howl’s Moving Castle”, for me these are the two best animated films from Hayao Miyazaki.
