Product Manager Payment and Giving Experience at RaiseNow AG (Zurich)

Hi, I’m Meike. I’ve lived and worked on almost every continent during my “wild years”, some of the places include India, Australia, and Ecuador before moving to Switzerland, where I’ve lived for the last 10 years. I’m currently working as a product manager in the FinTech industry, helping charities and clubs to increase their impact with our online fundraising and payment technology.

A challenge I’ve had to master is being a person with a non-technical background in a very technical environment, there are many experiences I can share here. I’m passionate about bringing teams together to deliver the best outcome. Everyone has their talents and different (cultural) backgrounds and I believe that it’s just a matter of detecting that and asking the right questions. And I’m passionate about watersports, in my free time I’m most likely somewhere in or on a lake or river.

Courses I took: LevelUp! & LevelUp! Leadership


Nationality: German


Languages I speak: Fluently: German, English, Spanish. Bar-conversation-level: Portuguese, Dutch, Italian, French (in descending order)


Fun Fact: In my 2 minutes of fame, I came in 3rd at the Swiss National Wakeboard Championships 2023. I might even tell you how many people took part that year.
