A short while ago the recordJet crew grew again. No, we didn’t get fatter – just taller this time, because our new addition MAX is a true Hamburger Jung (guy from Hamburg). Here he comes with his first exclusive interview. Behold, ladies, he will be famous soon:
Hi Max, please describe yourself in 1-2 sentences.
Hi! I am Max. People say I’m a quite okay guy.
What is your job in the cockpit?
I am Chief Account Pilot, which means I am the first point of contact for our passengers and partners from all directions (artists, labels, tech, etc.). Sometimes I’m the helping hand, sometimes I’m deus ex machina, sometimes I’m the link between the artists and players.
What did you do before you came to the recordJet cockpit?
Before I started at recordJet I graduated from Music Management and worked for Deezer. I also did a professional training way before that, I am a true Hamburg merchant – my handshake has more commitment that a legal contract.
What inspired you to start working for recordJet?
The job interview. I came for a short chat without expectations – thinking there must be a rub somewhere. I haven’t found that rub yet. I’m sure I don’t have to mention that I am convinced of the product, the spirit and the devotion of the entire crew.
Why do you want to work in the music industry?
I was looking for an acceptable, tangible job which allows me to preview all risks and plan my career in a steady way.
You’ve been here for a few days. What’s your first impression?
My first impression tells me that I can and want to stay here for a long time. To speak in clichees and the CI: I think, recordJet is in for an exciting and racy journey and the crew is definitely prepared. The coffee is also good, which makes me happy.
What music do you listen to in your private life? Are you a musician yourself?
Almost – I’m a bass player. But I hang out with musicians (the amazing Basement Volunteers) and we write whiny music for our own amusement. In my private life I prefer music with lots of fuzz and /or borderline pumped up drums – which is everything from the desert (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss), the big classics (Led Zeppelin, more Stones then Beatles) or the dying subcultures (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Refused). Other than that I like Hip Hop but no RnB.
Do you have a personal message for our passengers?
You can write me and pick up your personal messages straight from me – that’s what I’m here for.
