Our Hubbler in the spotlight: Meet Petra Höfer, Senior Key Account Manager. She tells us more about her career path, her life at PriceHubble and what she likes best about her job.
Hello, Petra! Before we start, could you briefly introduce yourself and tell us a little about yourself?
Hello, I am Petra. I am a native of Styria (Austria), but since travelling and languages are my passions, I have always enjoyed travelling the world professionally. I have a long career in the luxury hotel and cruise industry that has taken me to Switzerland, New York City, Milan and Paris. Especially from the experiences in the areas of pre-opening and opening of new hotels, I was able to take a lot with me, which also benefited me later on.
Besides travelling, the world of start-ups has always fascinated and magically attracted me. It is exciting and challenging to be actively involved from the very beginning when a company builds up and develops, opens up new markets and continues to grow.
In my private life, I am a happy mum of two wonderful children, who luckily also share my passion for travelling. :)
What is your life and work at PriceHubble like?
Busy (laughs). I have been Senior Key Account Manager for PriceHubble Austria since June 2022, so I take care of selling our products to new customers in Austria, advise interested parties at events and also actively approach potential new customers for whom our solutions could be interesting.
At PriceHubble we have the privilege of working from home. As a «family manager», this gives me the opportunity to work full-time despite having children. I am very grateful for this opportunity and also the confidence to be able to make my own schedule. This means that Monday is usually packed with internal meetings and preparations for the week. I like to use Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for customer meetings via video call, but also face-to-face in Vienna, and on Fridays I do my administrative work in addition to some internal meetings.
What do you like most about working here with us?
On the job, it’s like robbing a bank. It won’t work without the right accomplices!
Hence my clear answer to the question: the team. I am very positively surprised at how well all colleagues get along and work together, even across countries. I also like the fact that our working language is English and that I always have the opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues from non-German-speaking countries. In addition, there is the possibility to work remotely elsewhere for up to two months per year. As a travel lover, I’m already thinking about where I’m going to this next year.
Why would you recommend other talents to join the PriceHubble team?
PriceHubble offers a young, dynamic team with a lot of energy and a positive spirit. The company is already active in ten countries and more will be added in the future. This means that PriceHubble is perfect for people who are not afraid of change and who want to actively shape and develop a company.
The fact that the team works so well is of course not least due to the fact that PriceHubble puts a lot of energy into finding the right «Hubblers». When you become part of the company, you get a lot of appreciation and trust in your person and also for the work you do.
And last but not least, another reason to join PriceHubble is the exciting PropTech environment. Since we all own or rent an apartment or a house, everyone also finds a connection to this area. So, if you’re interested in the real estate industry coupled with cutting-edge technology, PriceHubble is the place to be.
