Malte Bornhöft, the new copywriter of MoBerries’ partner company wefox, found his job through our network. He spoke with us about his path to the profession as a copywriter, how he experienced the recruiting process as a candidate and what he enjoyed most while using the platform.
What is your background and what do you currently do for a living?
My way has never been straightforward. It has taken some twists and turns before I discovered my passion and direction. I started by studying law in Kiel (Schleswig-Holstein). I slowly grew disconnected after discovering my passion for writing and after 6 semesters I realized I was not going to complete my studies. Writing offered me freedom and opportunity to constantly expand and improve my skills.
After coming to terms with this, I started as a text-trainee at Rapp Collins Hamburg while studying marketing communication on the side. This served as the base preparation & experience needed to launch my career as a copywriter and author. Currently, I am working as a copywriter at wefox – an insurTech company based in Berlin – matched easily thanks to MoBerries.
How did you end up doing this job ?
Growing up I had a knack for writing stories on old typewriters and translating English pop songs to German. I also serialized my experiences with mean teachers through comic strips I created. Thinking back on it now it was pretty clear I would become a writer.

How long were you active on the platform and how would you describe the whole matching & recruitment process?
If I remember correctly, not very long.
After about 2 weeks, I was matched with my current employer, wefox. MoBerries offered me an alternative way to look for jobs and to be found by employers. I need to emphasise the ease of use, which helped me save a lot of time. This made the difference and convinced me to stick to the platform. MoBerries filtered out all the noise by matching me to serious inquiries where I could show my real potential.
Don’t know much about algorithms but I can say it works somehow – it’s magic! The application process started immediately. Just one week later I got the job as copywriter at wefox!
