Why I work for connectAuPair and what's my job there
After quite disappointing experiences with existing online portals (when searching for our own au-pair) I pushed Christoph (my husband) to found connectAuPair (which means a lot of work for him as a programmer), because I was (and still am) of the opinion that we can offer much better services than what's currently available on the internet.
Since we still haven't reached the critical mass from which functions like perfectMatch and nearBy will work really well - and we can't afford the massive advertising that is obviously necessary for this - we unfortunately had to part with our great team at the beginning of 2018 :-(
Since then my husband and I have been running the platform in our spare time and in September 2019 we decided to make it available for free also to families in the hope that more families will use it then.
I'm Language Support Manager for Deutsch
which is my mother tongue, but I'm also happy to communicate in English.
As we currently have our 7th au pair, I already researched lots of information about au pairs in Germany and so other befriended host families started to ask me for advice - therefore I'm really happy to share my knowledge now here on connectAuPair.
In May 2018 we've added China as a host country to our platform - which I personally think is one of the most interesting host countries for au pairs...
