Clara Behrmann, Senior Engineering Manager, Pleo

Clara studied Computer Science for love and money. Money because she'd grown up poor. Love because she'd met this person, she'd like to spend more time with. She didn't really know anything about computers. But pride made her stay, perseverance turned into a genuine care for the field. After completing her studies, she realised that helping people and products succeed was her happy place. So she turned from developing to product management, and then found her true calling managing people and teams. She's been doing that for 5+ years, currently at Pleo, a Danish FinTech company. - And the person she wanted to spend more time with? They are happily married.
