Juni, the financial companion for eCommerce entrepreneurs, announced the expansion of its leadership team, with Dee Janssens joining as Vice President of People. Dee has years of experience in HR operations, talent acquisitions and employee engagement, most recently as the Head of Talent Experience & HR Operations EMEA at Netflix, where she played a crucial role in expanding HR’s office presence from 2 to 11 locations in the EMEA region, and as People Operations Specialist EMEA at Uber, where she supported employees spread over 45+ countries.
Juni grew its team by 644% in 2021, from 9 to 67 employees as of December 7, and its employee base is currently spread across 30+ countries. With Dee leading the People team, Juni aims to increase its workforce by 140+ people in 2022, a year-on-year increase of over 200%.
Samir El-Sabini, Co-Founder and CEO, Juni, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have Dee join as Juni’s first VP. Her wealth of experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow our team at rapid speed, focusing on attracting the best global talent and building a people-first company culture. We want Juni to redefine what it is like to work in FinTech and we give our people the same thing we’re building for our customers: freedom.”
Dee Janssens, Vice President of People, Juni, said: “I’m excited about joining Juni as everything this company represents aligns with the values of what I believe makes a great company. Juni aims to become the financial companion for eCommerce and simultaneously is building a community of incredibly smart, empathic, compassionate, resilient people from everywhere. What has impressed me most is its well thought out perspective to continue to build an environment where everybody can be their best selves and feel that they belong. I’m looking forward to bringing this vision forward to make Juni the best place to work.”
