In Volume 7 of our “Meet The Team” series we introduce you to our new sales intern at the Play.fm office, Christoph aka Biggie:
What is your job as an Intern at Play.fm?
As sales intern I’m assisting the Play.fm team in establishing new partnerships, creating sales related concepts and researching data in all kinds of fields. The team tries to involve me into their work routine as much as they can. At the moment I’m working on updating Play.fm’s ads clients database and just finished a detailed case study about Play.fm’s latest DJ Contest in partnership with last year’s Rave On Snow festival. Moreover, I monitor the website and app sales statistics.
Why did you apply for an internship at Play.fm?
As part of my sales management studies I have to do a 3 month internship.
I’ve been listening to DJ Sets on Play.fm for quite some time and stumbled upon their job section while browsing the website. The thought of doing my internship in a smaller creative company instead of a major corporation always appealed to me since I like the idea of being directly involved in creating new sales strategies especially in a start-up environment. Additionally I’m really into electronic music which was another huge plus.
Play.fm just seemed like the perfect fit for me combining my interests in sales and electronic music.
Tell us something about yourself? What does your life look like?
I’m 23 years old and originally from Graz/Styria (Austria) where I study Sales Management at FH Campus 02. On the weekend I sometimes work at a bar, like to go out with friends or relax with movies, games and music.
I’ve also been playing American Football as Defense Liner for the Styrian Bears for 5 years now. You can watch me in action here

Music on-demand! I love to listen to music & mixes everywhere i am.

What makes you go mad?
