Deon van Vliet - UX designer
- 🧑🏻💻Name: Deon van Vliet
- 🌍From: The Netherlands
- 💼Job Title: UX designer (intern)
- What is your first memory? I think this will be just playing outside at the grassfield in front of the house I grew up in. There were swings, bushes and goal for soccer. All the kids in the neighborhood came out every day to meet and we would play all kinds of games. Especially in summer it felt like days lasted forever.
- What is your favourite way to procrastinate? Mostly doing everything that is not that thing I need to do. Taking care of my plants, check. Cleaning the house check, is it now time for administration? No I can do some groceries, maybe after that...
- What is your top book/film/tv/podcast recommendation of the past year? I love the podcast of ‘You’re wrong about’ in which 2 speakers dive themselves into a broad array of topics (it can literally be anything from stranger danger, to the economic crisis to Jessica Simpson) and either confirm or tell the actual truth. They do this with a lot of dry humor, but it’s very interesting and engaging.
- If you were stranded on a desert island, and you could take just one thing what would it be? A book how to survive on a deserted island. Hopefully McGuiver style, to make it a bit more cool.
- Who would you like to give a shout out to for helping you onboard at Rodeo? Marc Roman of course! Marc is very patient and explains me everything I need to know in detail. He is very experienced and knows therefore a lot about the industry and all the ropes that comes with it. Not to mention his great dry humor and use of GIF’s for everything.
- If you had one extra hour everyday, how would you spend it? I feel this is a trick question and it’s like new years resolutions. You always think you will ‘read more’, ‘be more active’ or use it for ‘more sleep’ but in the end you just watch an extra hour of Netflix or play a game.
- 🌍Once we can travel again, where is your next vacation going to be? Oh so many… I still would like to go to Japan and have a complete culture shock, but would love to go and make a road trip across the USA from East to West (or other way around). More nearby Lisbon is still on my bucket list and island hopping in Greece.
Milena Alexova - Digital Growth Marketer
- 🧑🏻💻Name: Milena
- 🌍From: Bulgaria
- 💼Job Title: Digital Growth Marketer
- What is your first memory? Being spoiled by my mom and dad dressed in what was the ugliest combination of clothes possible. Never had a fashion sense as a baby.
- What drives you to get going in the morning? A cup of coffee and a long but detailed to-do list. Oh, and the big white polar bear of a dog angel that needs to be walked.
- What is your favourite way to procrastinate? I bake. A LOT. And chores. Chores become the most attractive thing when you have stuff to do.
- What is your top book/film/tv/podcast recommendation of the past year?
- Book: Maybe you should talk to someone.
- Podcast: Stronger by Science
- If you were to describe the Rodeo team in one word, what would it be? Down-to-Earth.
- Who would you like to give a shout out to for helping you onboard at Rodeo? Erik, no doubt.
- 🌍Once we can travel again, where is your next vacation going to be? New York and Naples!

- 🌍From: Germany
- 💼Job Title: Sales Development Representative GER
- What is your first memory? I got a helium balloon and I let it go by accident. I was really sad about it. To cheer me up my parents gave me chocolate cookies. I think that's the day my chocolate addiction started.
- What drives you to get going in the morning? A nice breakfast, my favorite meal of the day.
- What is your favourite way to procrastinate? Coffee breaks
- If you had one extra hour everyday, how would you spend it? Hanging or working out with my friends
- 🌍Once we can travel again, where is your next vacation going to be? Somewhere warm, where it is not raining and I can go to the beach everyday.

- What is your top personal victory you have achieved so far at Rodeo? Figuring out how the bluetooth coffee machine works...just kidding...I would say booking and performing demos
- What is your top book/film/tv/podcast recommendation of the past year? Fest und flauschig, a German podcast, where two guys combine talking bullshit with the latest news. I think they do a really good job!
- If you were stranded on a desert island, and you could take just one thing what would it be? A phone with spotify on it.
- What field of work are you most looking forward to owning in 2021? Showing the German creatives, that Rodeo is the tool they were always looking for! 📈
