Julia Zajac

People + Operations Assistant

What do you do at &us?

Send obnoxious amounts of emojis on Slack.. and in my free time – help out with all things people and operations. Organising fun social activities for all of (&)us, hiring cool and talented people, making sure everyone is treated well and last but not least… bother Alex S 😁

What do you care about most in your work?

Definitely being passionate about what I do!

But also doing something that aligns with my values. I like to be given an opportunity to grow through challenges and value honest feedback. Hopefully, being able to help someone and have fun at the same time πŸ™‚

What did you do prior to &us?

Not much πŸ˜… Got a BSc in Psychology, tried to figure out what I want from life (I am still doing that in fact, and don’t expect to stop until I retire; settled in a nice, secluded house somewhere in the Mediterranean).

What do you do for fun outside of work?

I love cooking, for the most part, I ask myself “How can I make a fancy meal out of my leftovers?”.

Roam around as many cool cafes and restaurants in London as I can find, buy overpriced eggs, learn new languages, do yoga, walk (everywhere I can and probably for way too long) and travel!

Talk to me about…

Food! πŸ™πŸΌπŸ•ΊπŸ» and travelling, if you please.
