New on the team: Paula

Hey Everyone!

My name is Paula and I just became a part of the PicDrop Support team as of July 1st.
Good customer support is really important to me and I want PicDrop customers to experience just the best. I am already looking forward to putting a smile on the faces of all PicDrop customers.

Aside from providing exceptional support, I am also a nurse (so PicDrop “accidents” aren’t the only things I can patch up!). I have a Bachelors degree in Healthcare and Nursing Management.

I like to travel around the world and I’m fascinated by Asia and the US. I love the sun and fries are my spirit animal.

I’m really looking forward to being part of this team and support you in any way possible! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at hello@picdrop.de!

PS: Looking for a new job opportunity? Want to work with a very nice and friendly team? Fancy a shiny new office? You’re in luck, we’re hiring!
