10 Questions with Maria Boos

When did you start at LFT?

In the fall of 2020.

What are you doing at LFT?

I am an executive assistant and additionally responsible for LFT's marketing activities. My functions include supporting the CEO, CSO and CTO with management tasks and additionally commercial tasks such as accounting issues, customer communication, configuration management and quality management support.

In Marketing, I take care of the content of our social media channels such as Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and the general planning of LFT's marketing activities.

What is special about working for LFT?

I like the variety of tasks I work on every day. I also think that when people hear about autonomous driving, they first think of something like science fiction. So it's great to work at LFT and know that it's one of the companies that is turning this fiction into reality.

What 3 words would you use to describe LFT?

Dynamic, progressive, expanding / growing.

What would you do (professionally) if you didn't do this?

At school I was part of a theater group - I sang and played guitar. I performed in every concert that was organized at school. Therefore, during my school years I dreamed of becoming an actress or a singer.

What is an interesting fact about you that many people may not know?

I am a big animal lover! For several years I no longer eat meat and my big dream would be to have a "mercy farm" / shelter for factory farmed and homeless animals. So far I have managed to personally help homeless animals in my hometown Kyiv with sterilization and food. And what is really funny is the fact that at that time I could be seen running around with a net to catch stray cats so that I could take them to the vet afterwards. In the process I was even bitten by a cat 🙂

What is the best place you have traveled to and why?

Definitely the Maldives. I liked the nature, the ocean and the different animals there. It was great to be on an island where you could almost feel like the last person on earth. The trip was very relaxing and calming.

What food / dish do you wish had no calories?

I am a big snacker. So it's very difficult for me to choose just one food item. But right now it would be Herr's Deep Dish Pizza Curls.

If you could learn anything new, what would it be?

It would be great to learn as many languages as possible.

What advice do you have for prospective LFT applicants?

You should not hesitate to apply for a job at LFT! Because at LFT, smart and motivated people are highly valued and everyone gets the chance to prove themselves.
