Curious faces, smart questions and a lot of engagement – last week’s Berlin Talent Summit was a success for all participants. 30 out of 250 young European talents, pre-selected for this event, have visited us in our office in Berlin-Mitte to meet our IT-specialists and learn more about plista.

To kick-off the day, Tobias (Teamlead Core), Elisa (Head of AdServices) and Sarah (Manager Human Resources) gave a short introduction, and presented plista as a data-driven platform for native advertising solutions and content distribution.

Workshop: Build plista´s next super algorithm

After some first networking, we started our workshop session in small groups. The students got to know their mentors, Leonardo, Sebastian, Daniel and Leif from our IT department, who supported their groups with the challenge: “What do you recommend? – Build plista´s next super algorithm”.

Only one hour and some inspiring ideas later, each group presented their results in front of the whole team. We were really impressed by how fast everybody got an idea of our work and we appreciate the fantastic thoughts that were shared by the students.

Career Session at the Kalkscheune

The next day, we met the rest of the 250 students during the career session at Kalkscheune. Together with two IT-experts from our team, we informed many students about what plista is doing and what first job opportunities we have.

In the relaxing atmosphere of the Kalkscheune and with delicious food in the evening, we had a great time talking to different people from all over Europe.

For us, it was fantastic to be a part of the Berlin Talent Summit 2016! We enjoyed meeting all these interesting students and hope to see you around next year at the Berlin Talent Summit!
