Passionate about the job, right from the beginning
Anisa Müller has been at Da Vinci almost from the beginning. She celebrated her 16 year anniversary with the dynamic development service provider in 2023. She built up the company together with Max Cava and Alice Gröhl. “Max has always given me a considerable amount of freedom for implementing my ideas and gave me responsibility at an early stage”, says Anisa Müller. She is now the head of sales, is setting up the new engineering department, and calls herself the Da Vinci firefighter. There is no strict separation between work and private life for Anisa Müller, “because I love my job at Da Vinci and I enjoy working.”
The compatibility of family and career is not just an empty phrase at Da Vinci, but something which we live by
Following a year of parental leave, she returned to work 100 percent. But Anisa Müller was never really away. During her parental leave, she kept herself up to date and was in touch with Max and the team leaders. Her daughter now goes to daycare. Anisa Müller is currently in the office from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and works remotely outside of the core hours. “In this way, I can do justice to my daughter and my work,” says Anisa Müller, emphasising that she has great colleagues around her who make this possible. If, for example, she is needed at work after the end of daycare, her daughter comes with her to the office with her if care from another source is not available. The compatibility of family and career is not just an empty phrase at Da Vinci, but is something that is lived by, even by the management. “We attach great importance to having a friendly and familial working atmosphere,” says Müller, but the result also has to be right.

Taking responsibility right from the start
Anisa Müller helped shape the development of the company from a small business with a few employees to an engineering service provider with more than 600 employees. She started at Da Vinci with a summer job, which she enjoyed so much that she worked at Da Vinci again after graduating from high school and decided to stay. She completed the dual degree in service management at the Stuttgart Cooperative State University, worked in the prototype laboratory at Magneti Marelli, gave German lessons to foreign engineers at Da Vinci and helped Max in the operational area. She faced the challenges and changes of the expanding company and took on the responsibility which was assigned to her right from the start. Her latest task is developing the engineering department at Da Vinci. “The satisfaction of our customers and employees means a lot to me,” says Müller, but economic success is also important to her. “I enjoy working with people, and look forward to meeting new people.” She is happy to pass on her passion for working at Da Vinci.
