Please tell us about yourself.

My name is Jamal, I was born and raised in Berlin and I am 37 years old. My heri­tage is split between Germany and the USA, and I studied poli­tical science at the Freie Univer­sität Berlin, where I got my diploma in 2006. After a short time working in poli­tical educa­tion and as an assi­stant in the Bundestag, I joined the startup scene.

What do you do at COMATCH?

I am Busi­ness Intel­li­gence Manager at COMATCH. In this posi­tion, I do my best to support my colleagues with all of the inte­re­sting and important infor­ma­tion they need. We in team BI are respon­sible for compe­titor analysis, lead manage­ment, evalua­tions, KPIs, and reports. We also design and plan the CRM and data manage­ment envi­ron­ment for our co-workers to provide them with great tools to continue doing a great job.

What drives you (apart from your job)?

I like to have calm and harmony in my life. It is important for me to learn and grow every day. Four years ago, I started volun­tee­ring as a “Schöffe” – a volun­teer judge – at the local court in Berlin Tier­garten. I wanted to do some­thing rele­vant that could enhance my personal values of fair­ness and justice. So, once a month, I join a full-time judge and another volun­teer judge to decide about the proce­e­dings in diffe­rent kinds of cases, like narco­tics law or traffic regu­la­tions. The three of us have an equal say in the final deci­sion. One special case that I will never forget was the very first time I worked as a volun­tary judge: a truck driver ran over a cyclist, who later died as a result of the acci­dent. This inci­dent destroyed the truck driver’s private and working life, he was deva­stated. In this case, there were only victims. This was a very moving story for me perso­nally, it taught me to always consider both sides and have compas­sion for the wrong­doers, too.

What is your moti­va­tion for being a “Schöffe”?

It makes me happy when I feel that we have the thoroughly examined all the evidence and questioned all the witnesses and, in the end, that the sentence is just and fair.
