Meet Nicolai Bahmann, Legal Counsel
Meet the people working at Pleo
Here at Pleo, we take pride in our unique hiring process, in the team we built and the people we are working with. If it wasn’t for each and every one of them, Pleo wouldn’t be the same. Their stories and visions tell a lot about what makes Pleo such a special place and a great company to work for.
We’re putting some of these people in the spotlight, so they can tell you, in their own words, what working at Pleo is all about.
Meet our German team 🇩🇪
Our Berlin office gang is truly one of a kind… they are ambitious and never miss out on the chance to have some fun – or dance. We’ve seen some pretty special dance moves going down in the office. 🧐 😜
In general, they are a pretty relaxed bunch of people… as you can tell from their choice of shoes in the picture above.
Last time, we introduced you to our beloved Shanzi, People Partner. If you missed it, have a look here.
Today you will get to know sporty Nico who is working remotely from Cologne.
Here we go …
Let’s meet Nico, Legal Counsel
What do you do at Pleo?
In my role as Legal Counsel, I advise our People Team on employment law. This means anything from hiring new Pleo’ers in existing markets, getting ready to hire Pleo’ers in new markets and supporting both current and future employees in visa questions, etc. I also provide advice on topics like salaryand benefits – basically to find answers for all Pleo-Employee related questions.
What were you doing before?
I worked part-time as a Sales rep at a Berlin based start-up called unu and studied law at the University of Cologne. So you can say that working at Pleo is my first “real” job after many student jobs.
Why did you join Pleo?
When I arrived for my interview, I was overwhelmed by how open and candid I was approached by Pleo'ers that I have never met before. After my interview I talked to fellow Pleo'ers and they were so full of energy and driven by what they do, that this made me really want to join the team and the journey. I sensed that this is a good place for me to grow on a personal and a professional level.
What’s surprised you most about working here?
That our culture in the company really lives up to our values. While not everything is perfect, I see that everybody strives to make it better and doesn’t settle with the status quo.
For me, this means chipping in and supporting each other whenever it’s needed. But also feeling confident when asking for help if I need it and going the extra mile for my co-workers when they need it.
What excites you about the road ahead with Pleo?
Speaking to customers and friends, I can see the impact that Pleo has. Employees not only use the phrase “I’m going to Pleo this for work” but I also feel that their workplace is changing for the better. If we can have this impact already, I’m very excited about how we can not only transform business spending but also change the way employers and employees think about the way they work together.
