Kenyan Making it BIG at TRIVAGO

TRIVAGO started a new blog that aims to give its customers a bit of insight into the company and some of the employees (guess motivated by the Vodafone one, which also featured a Kenyan check here). Surprisingly, one of their employees is Kenyan and he was featured in the blog discussing about his job and a bit about travelling. His name is Peter Karimurio and here’s what he said at the interview.

My Job at trivago:

I work for the „Global Blogger Relations“ at trivago. I’m incharge of Online Marketing and Social Media Relations. I generally combine and thus try to bridge the gap between marketing and communication.

The first thing I do when I get to the office:

Mmmhhh…..I usually have my breakfast. I like to eat croissants or this delicious crunchy müsli, which is available for everyone in the trivago kitchens.

How I got to trivago:

I did the usual application but although it’s less than a year ago, I can’t quite remember which position I applied for. They invited me for an interview and I got the job. In the beginning I worked in the Search Engine Optimization for the site in English speaking countries.

For me, trivago is…

…a fascinating place where you can learn alot. I’ve never been anywhere where I could learn and try as much as I do here. I think there are very few jobs that are comparable to this one.

My Hometown:

Nairobi (Kenya)

My 3 Insider tips for Nairobi:

1. The Nairobi-National-Park – the park is about 7km from the city center. You can see the city’s skyline from inside the park, only a fence separates the animals from the city.

2. The Theater- and Musik scene is incredibly diverse. In Nairobi, music plays a big role. Every time I leave Nairobi, I miss the music that usually accompanies me everywhere.

3. „The Village Market“ is more than just an ordinary shopping center. The beautifully designed complex includes about 150 stores, waterfalls, open-air restaurants, water slides and swimming pools, a bowling alley and a mini golf course and much more. As a child I was here often for swimming.

I’d like to spend the night in this hotel: 

Since I’m a big Formula 1 fan – I would love to visit in Monte Carlo specifically the Hotel Fairmont Monte Carlo. Beautiful cars, the Mediterranean Sea right at your doorstep, large yachts and casinos, I would like to experience all  that. The Grand Prix suite of four-star hotels also has a balcony from which guests have a direct view of the race track and the infamous hairpin curve. Everyone would want to be so close to it, right? 

About trivago:

Trivago was founded in 2004 in Munich and is currently the largest hotel search and information website worldwide.
