A Calabrian boy around Europe

Ciao,   My name is Michele and I’m the new Italian Community Marketing manager here at GoodBarber. Globetrotter by vocation, I was born in a small city situated very close to Trieste, where I lived until I was 6, before moving to Calabria with my family. I studied Communication and Journalism in Rome, a city that I love and hate at the same time, which is usually the case in most complicated love stories. I also have a fantastic Erasmus experience in Salamanca  under my belt, and an equally intense period in Dublin with the Leonardo program. I have various experiences in the media field (newspapers, web agencies, the communication department of a political party, and radio—my greatest passion). I spent the past year and a half living in Milan where I worked in the marketing department of a small pharmaceutical company. I speak Italian, English and Spanish and I’d love to learn French and Portuguese too. I'm addicted to social media, love rock music, the 80s, sleeping on the beach, football and eggplant parmigiana. And great challenges, of course! That’s why now I’m here at GoodBarber! ;) Ps: Follow me on Twitter @jpmontoya1

GoodBarber Now Available in Brazilian!

Hello GoodBarbers! Today we have some good news for our Brazilian friends: the back office and apps are now available in Brazilian! We already offered the option for you to set your back office and app in Portuguese. But as we are aware that there are significant differences between the two languages, we felt that it was essential to provide the choice of Brazilian as well, in order for you to make the most of our interface and your beautiful apps. Now it's done! Stay tuned, GoodBarber's Brazilian adventure has only just begun!

Bruno Langlois / Pikes Peak 2015 - Results

The famous Pikes Peak race that we have talking about recently finally took place yesterday, and the GoodBarber team is very pleased with the results. Our friend Bruno Langlois came in 3rd place with a time of 10:19:738. Even if he didn't match his big win from two years ago, he still impressed us on his Kawasaki (factory bike, needless to say!)

#MIDEM 2015

MIDEM 2015 has come to an end...we've seen and heard a lot over the past four days! Between conferences, contests, meeting artists, producers, and other members of the industry, I must say that very little rest was involved! But overall it was very beneficial for GoodBarber, as we were able to immerse ourselves in the music world and gain a full understanding of industry's progression, its challenges, and most importantly, its needs.

A New Globetrotter has Joined the Beautiful GB Crew

Hey GoodBarbers, My name is Vanessa and I just started this week as the new Country Manager for Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Originally, I am from Hungary, but have spent almost my whole life in the Black Forest in the south of Germany. Besides my two native languages, German and Hungarian, I learned English, French and Latin. Currently, I am studying International Business Management with concentrations in Marketing and French. During my studies, I worked for two years as the Marketing Manager in a small German company and I had the chance to gain a lot of work experience. To improve my language proficiencies and marketing knowledge and to meet new people from all over the world, I decided to do my internship in Ajaccio at GoodBarber. I have already been to Corsica twice and I really enjoyed the island, so it is a great opportunity for me to work and live on this «Île de Beauté».  In my free time, I am passionate about motor sport, travelling, volleyball, HipHop/R&B music and dogs.  I am looking forward to working in an international and dynamic team and enjoying the Corsican way of life!

What is a girl from Vicenza doing in Corsica?!

Hey GoodBarbers, My name is Silvia; I am the new country manager who has just landed in Ajaccio to take care of the Italian market. I was born in a small village near Vincenza (not far from Venice) where I spent my childhood daydreaming. As soon as I had the chance, I started travelling and spending time living in different cities. I spent the past two years in Paris, which I love everything about..the little back alleys and beautiful perfumes will always be close to my heart! However, I'm not afraid of change, and I can't wait to discover the magnificent views in Corsica. Between Paris and Bologna, I did a Bachelors in Communications and a Masters in Film. For the past couple of years I have worked in several fields: theatre film production, public relations at communication agencies, event planning for social networks, as well as in journalism.  After having covered the full spectrum of the Communications field, I fell in love with digital. I worked at an e-commerce website for almost a year, and now I'm ready for a new challenge! In my free time I like to lose myself in a book, discover everything around me, take little trips, and write  :)

A New Girl on the Team

Hi GoodBarbers !   My name is Muriel , and I'm the new French Country Manager of the Marketing Team. Coming from Ajaccio, I always wanted to stay in my native region of Corsica, which is very important for me. I wanted to show people that there is no need te leave the island to succeed in school or in our professional life. I'm not trying to say that being open to the world is a bad thing (I myself decided to leave Corsica for a 4 month internship in Italy, in the Camogli area), but I wanted to prove that Corsica could offer a lot of good educational and professional opportunities. Therefore, I studied at the University of Corsica, in Corte. I had the great opportunity to be a part of the first class of the Master in Management Science, with a specialization in Marketing, at the Institute of Business Administration of Corsica. After my studies, I really wanted to find a young, dynamic and innovative firm,  compared to the local business environment... That's why, when I found a job offer at GoodBarber, I didn't hesitate, I immediately applied, and here I am ! As you have understood, I will be in charge of the French language market, but it's my first day so I still have a lot of stuff to learn... ! Outside of work, I like to go out and have a good time with my friends and family, but I also enjoy strolling in my little attic appartment, playing guitar, and drinking liters of tea...   See you soon !

From the Football Player to the Fan... A Relationship Built Through an App

What I love most about the support service of GoodBarber is the personal relationship that they build with the clients. It's difficult to get past the barrier of internet to allow a personal, almost face to face communication. But from the feedback of our many users, I believe we successfully manage to overcome the distance. I'm so happy and proud to have been contacted by one of our clients who wanted to share the success of his app with us.

A new Latin Breeze is Blowing in the Offices of GoodBarber

Hello GoodBarbers! I am Laura Mas Martín , the new member of GoodBarber’s marketing team. In the next months I will be in charge of the Latin American and Spanish markets, as I was born in the latter country. After finishing my degree and internship in Journalism in Madrid, an international scholarship became my passport to India, in whose capital city I lived for a year. There, I worked in a communications department in addition to travelling throughout the whole country. Once the Asian experience was concluded, it’s been a Mediterranean island, quite close to the one in which I was born and raised –Mallorca-, the location of my new professional experience: Corsica, GoodBarber’s headquarters. About myself, I can highlight that I wish to become a citizen of the world. Moreover, I should not forget to mention I love reading books as well as watching good films. In conclusion, I will be the next Spanish helper and guide to make sure you create your most Beautiful Apps.

What happened during the 2014 Web Summit?

Hey GoodBarbers,  We just came back from Dublin, where we participated in this year's Web Summit . Lots of things happened! Too many, probably, for one single article. So here are some photos and the experiences of our team. Enjoy!

This year has been full of emotions for us; the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the top 5, GoodBarber 3, and there is still so much more to come in these next two months... Trust me, we will surprise you! I don't want to give anything away but..... ;)
