Welcome Sara Jakobsen, our new People & Culture Business Partner

We’re tingly with excitement to welcome Sara Jakobsen as our new People & Culture Business Partner. Sara has worked with recruitment and HR since 2009.

Peo Nilsson, Interim CEO at Zimpler says: ““We are thrilled to welcome Sara to Zimpler. Her background within the tech- industry coupled with her warm and kind nature makes her a perfect fit for the People & Culture team. The P&C team will play an important role in our growth journey going forward, from an organisational perspective but also as the owners of our employee journey. They will ensure that we continue to focus on supporting our employees and provide challenging development and training opportunities. I have no doubt that Sara will be instrumental in this and will help us take our employee promise to the next level.”

Why did you choose to work at Zimpler?

"I wanted to work for a smaller scale-up tech company. Why Zimpler? Easy - for the culture and the bold ambitions!"

What challenges do you face in your new role?

"We are growing A LOT! And in almost every department. To balance the need of having new (and existing) processes in place and to continue to support and develop our leaders and co-workers at the same time as we onboard many new colleagues is of course a challenge - but a really fun one!"

Enough business, what do you like to do outside of work?

"I love nature! I love to go skiing in the winter with my family and to go sailing in the summer. Spring is my favorite season - to see nature wake up and come to life is pure magic! A year ago my husband and I didn't know anything about how to actually sail a boat. But that didn't stop us from spontaneously buy a sailing boat and taking our 3 kids out to spend almost 4 weeks on the west coast. Not just did everyone survive (including our marriage) - we absolutely loved it and will do it again this summer!"
