What are your tasks at the company?

I have a lot of different tasks in the frontend area. My main task is the Gantt diagram of our planing software. I design and develop the user interface (design, usability and user experience), from the conception to the implementation. In addition to that I do a lot of graphic work for the company, for example I designed all the flyers and the mockups for SaxMS.

The scheudeling of my work time is very flexible and relaxed, I can choose the times that I want to work. A lot of the thing that I learn at university I can use for my work. For example I wrote my thesis for my bachelor degree about our app “SaxMS Rail”, which I also helped developing, so the connction between work and university was immediately there.

I personally really like that you can experience here how the company is growing and that you get to be a part of it. It is also a good feeling when I work on something and the customer uses and likes it.

What are your hobbies? What are you doing in your free time? 

I like to be active in my free time. I go jogging and I ride my bike. I am also interested in technology, I like to program in my free time. I even programed a little dashboard for my apartment which shows at which times the trams leave.
