I mainly take on tasks from customer-oriented areas. In my case this includes sales, marketing, communications and key account management. In addition, I also deal with topics such as business and product development.
Yes, that´s right. In terms of sales, I´m only on-site with customers once or twice a month – in view of the current circumstances, things are, of course, a little different. Due to Corona, no on-site appointments are planned, so I´ve been working from home 90 % of the time since March of last year. At the moment, you can only find me in the office on important occasions.

“At Campudus, the option to work from home was already available before Corona. Everyone is free to decide when and how often they come into the office. I'm normally in the office most of the time. I feel very comfortable there – you're actually more in motion when your colleagues are around you and you get to hear a little more from everyone as well.”
My workplace at home corresponds 1:1 to my office workplace, also in ergonomic terms. Each of us has been given a full equipment package to make the switch to home office as comfortable as possible. In general, we are all equipped with laptops and are therefore home-office-ready.
Manfred: We use our own meeting tool for video calls so that we can easily coordinate, without an elaborate invitation system. In addition, we use ‘Slack’ channels to exchange ideas on specific topics in various constellations. What's missing, of course, is the coffee kitchen effect in the office. Although the developer cliché does apply to some of us from time to time: we don't talk much, even though we sit in front of each other all day (laughs).
“But in general, you really have to say that home office works very well for us because Max (managing director) supports this way of working and there is also the necessary basis of trust among everyone.”
My commute to the office is quite long, so it's very convenient for me to work from home. During my lunch break, I sometimes go for a run or take a nap. And what I really like about our ‘Daily’ is that it maintains a certain routine regardless of where we work.
To keep things balanced, I've made it a habit to do about 1.5 hours of sports in the afternoon and go back to work in the evening. Another thing that shouldn't be ignored is the simpler choice of clothing: business casual on top and sweatpants for the rest (laughs).
I have to say that I get up much later. In terms of activity, I'm not quite as sporty as Michael, but a daily midday walk with my girlfriend has become routine. Regarding the outfit question: 100 % jeans. I actually don't own any sweatpants at all.
Manfred: Regardless of Corona, I prefer a healthy mix, depending on the type of work. A new project needs more exchange on a personal level. Exclusive online contact only works for older projects.
Michael: I agree with Mane on that. I can concentrate much better at home. But when it comes to creative topics and joint projects, exchange naturally works better in the office. It's all in the mix.
Daniela: I have to say that I actually prefer being in the office. Before joining Campudus, I worked on my master thesis mostly from home, so I really enjoy the new work life in the office. On top of that, our portafilter coffee machine makes pretty good coffee, which, of course, is a great motivation for coming into the office (laughs).
Usually jeans. In sweatpants it quickly becomes too comfortable, so it's hard for me to get into ‘work mode’.
