It is Friday again, that means it is time for our weekly employee interview series that we have dubbed “Tea(m) Time”! Today, help us welcome Jon Crooke to our team in Berlin!
This week I went on a walk with Jon in the Mitte neighborhood which our SoundCloud HQ calls home in Berlin. We stumbled upon the cemetery grounds that our office overlooks, found a nice place to sit and we used the SoundCloud iOs app to record an interview. We talked about Jon’s nomadic life, what word he loves, what he digs about Berlin and much much more! Listen to the full interview below!
