Emily Hawkins
Senior Product Manager at Beekeeper

Emily is a Product Manager at Beekeeper, working the last six years to change the way frontline organizations reach, engage with and optimize how their frontline teams work. Having studied and worked in the Bay Area before moving to Switzerland, Emily has been excited to first watch and then participate in how cross-functional teams can dig into a space and transform it with discovery, design and technology. Emily loves connecting with people - talking with customers about the way they work and discovering underserved needs/problems, leading workshops internally to ideate and refine solutions, or getting internal and external stakeholders excited about aforementioned solutions and the problems / opportunities they address. Outside of work, you can catch Emily in Zurich playing beach volleyball or making somewhat symmetrical pottery.

Danièle Steiger
Product Manager at Beekeeper

Danièle is a Product Manager at Beekeeper, and has been working on empowering frontline teams for the last four years. After her studies at the University of St. Gallen, Danièle first pursued a career in banking and consulting, before realising that having a positive impact mattered more than fancy-looking slides. Danièle loves a UX that “just makes sense”, digging through numbers and data to understand a problem, and bringing order to chaos. Apart from Product Management, Danièle likes kitesurfing in sunny places, a full shoe closet, and Korean green tea.
