Office & HR-Manager
Don’t mess with this radiant soul! Growing up with 3 older brothers, Janina knows what she wants in life, doesn’t take anything for granted and loves her big warm-hearted family above all. She has a huge passion for Italian food and always has suggestions for good wine on hand. No surprise, since she’s coming from Margraves’ Land, also called the “Tuscany of Germany”.When she joined JUKSEREI, she instantly shared her focus and determination with the team and mesmerised us with her big, round, Nutella eyes. When she’s not organising, prioritising, aligning numbers or setting up contracts, she is taking care of all our requests to make sure we all continue enjoying going to work every day. So, if we say:” Focus, confidence, caring, golden chunky hoops and red lipstick” You say: “JANINA!”.
What is your role at JUKSEREI?
Together with Anne, I manage the Berlin office and the daily business while Chanette works from Denmark. I am the right hand–and sometimes left hand (wink)–of Chanette and handle various administrative tasks for her in Germany and HR topics, making sure everything runs according to her vision and according to our company culture. But most of all, I look after the team on-site and make sure everyone is well taken care of – and in doing so, I am always happy to meet new people and exciting personalities who want to join the company or become our business partners.
What do you love about working for JUKSEREI?
I love the great team, above all else! It’s really nice how we strive together for our vision, beliefs and values, always supporting each other. That makes this workplace very special to me and from HR manager perspective I am also very proud: Every single person is not only greatly talented but also warm hearted and open minded, never too tired for a new upcoming adventure.
Any good local tips for experiencing Berlin?
Although the area around our office is more a business district, I’ve discovered some nice spots that have definitely become my favourite ones in the past few years. Café Westberlin is one of them – they offer delicious coffee & snacks (I definitely can recommend the white bean salad) as well as nice (design) magazines & books. It’s the perfect place to escape from the hectic and faced paced environment of the city for a short while. Or Gropius Bau, which has a beautiful garden in the backyard, where you can enjoy an aperitif & delicious food on a warm summer evening after watching one of the constantly changing exhibitions to wind down from a stressful working day.
What are you listening to?
90's: Starts with old school hip hop (Wutang Clan, Dr. Dre, Nas, Snoop Dog) followed by the Backstreet Boys (never ever N’ Sync) and ends with 90's Dance (Scatman John, Snap!, Haddaway)

Something special on your wish list?
I would be very happy if I could fulfill myself a little dream at my 40th Birthday: to buy a Vintage 1er Golf Cabriolet OR Suzuki Jimni. And because it’s too hard to make a decision, both!
Best concert experience?
Back in September 2017 I went to see Moderat, when they played their very last tour concert at Wuhlheide (Berlin) before they took a break. It was the best concert experience I've had so far. The band was so overwhelmed by all the people standing in the stands, listening and dancing to their music. They were telling the crowd that they began their music here in Berlin years ago and dreamed about playing in the Wuhlheide some day... then their dream came true just a few years later. I think this moment was as magical for them and as it was for the audience.
A daily thought?
