No two days are the same on the partner management team. Go behind the scenes with Maximilian Kober to learn about how community and collaboration are at the heart of what he and his teammates do every day.

Hi Max! Tell us a bit about your background - what brought you to Txture?

When I was about to finish my studies in international economics and slowly started looking for jobs, Txture would write an email to all students and tell them to apply for a role. I already found it interesting because it was a field I was really interested in. When I came home that evening, my girlfriend back then said, “Hey, did you see that email from that startup called Txture? This really has your name written all over it." This sealed the deal for me that I really wanted to work there. I then applied , met for lunch with the two founders, and ever since then I’m here and happy about how it worked out!

How would you describe Cloud Transformation to one of your family members?

Well, a lot of companies have programs that run on their servers that stand in their basements. Eventually, they always have to get new hardware and maintain that stuff, which really becomes a pain in the ass. Hence, if they move to the cloud, they can get rid of that problem and even improve their IT landscape with dedicated cloud offerings that support their business model.

What does your typical day look like?

Typically, when I come into the office, I check my mail and start working on the urgent ones. At 10, we have our daily partner team standup where we discuss our current work and obstacles. Afterwards, I structure what I want to get done during the rest of the day and plan that. The rest is typically a lot of meetings in between doing the other work, a lot of which is planning and sorts.

What part of your role do you find most exciting?

Working together with all those international and really big partners we have is super exciting and a huge opportunity. I’m glad that I earned the trust and support to go to all these meetings and make major decisions on how we want to move forward with some of the biggest companies in the world.

What is your favorite Txture Slack channel?

Lunch ;-)

What are you passionate about outside of work?

My little family, ski mountaineering, all kinds of biking (road, mountain), & mountaineering

Do you have any book/podcast/media recommendations?

  • Never split the difference
  • Outliers

Off-Topic: Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings is something everyone should have read in my opinion.

What advice do you have for talents in the partnering & sales space?

Just do it.

Anything you want to add for our future employees?

In literally every job, there are good and bad things. So take the bad with the good and don’t put too much thought into things that aren’t necessarily running your way, but learn from them.
