People behind Momio: Meet Lina!

Momio is a social media for children. Our top priority is to keep our users safe and provide guidance for them and their parents. Our most important safety resources are our local Community Manager.

Last time you met our German Community Manager Lill, today we want to introduce you to Lina. Lina moved from being an offline to being an online teacher and now keeps our Danish users safe.

Meet Lina

What is your background?

As a former teacher and librarian in the Danish public school system, I have 15 years of experience with working with kids and their parents. And so when I started working at Momio, I went from working with 700 kids around me to working in an office in front of a computer. On my first day here, I was surprised how quiet my new job was. Nonetheless, only after a few days, I realised just how similar my new job and former job were. The cute stories, big feelings, the open and bold approaches that children have were all still there. All of these continue to be a part of my life, except not at school or a library, but online.

What are your tasks at Momio?

As the Community Manager of Momio Denmark, my task is first and foremost to keep Momio safe and fun. You could compare it to being the teacher of a class of A LOT of children. I also work with a great team of young people, including the supporters and moderators, all of whom are really talented. One of my favourite tasks is to help parents understand the phenomena related to kids and their life online that are not always clear to us older folks.

Why do you like working at Momio?

Many of my tasks as a Community Manager at Momio are very similar to the ones in my previous jobs, but at the same time also very different. I have learned a great deal about the online life of kids and how a company is run. It is very exciting to be a part of a startup, and even more exciting to be a part of Momio.

Thank you, Lina! Your experience as a teacher is really adding to our team and we are so happy to be your colleagues.
