Thorough teamwork is key
I have been at mediaman since 2007, and I work in UX design and requirements engineering. My daily routine depends heavily on the project and project phase; projects begin with analysing aims and conditions, and developing ideas and making them workable with the customer. This involves a lot of teamwork. Other phases involve upgrading and continuously improving a product. Sharing ideas and information with colleagues plays a major role in every phase of a project.
I enjoy being part of an experienced team with the ability to develop and implement good ideas. We talk openly, and quickly benefit from each other’s knowledge.
Change is part of the job, and that’s what makes it so exciting
I especially enjoy the versatility of my profession, which is what brought me to mediaman back in the day. Digitalisation has made new business models possible with new topics and objectives. Working methods also reflect the change – things we used to do in series we now do mostly in parallel, and that takes effective communication between everyone involved. I also love prototyping – visualising requirements in an interactive model, and testing and refining design ideas at an early stage.
Other than that
I like to go windsurfing in the summer months, and I’ll never say no to a board game whatever the weather. I enjoy going to sci-fi conventions – it’s as if you’d just landed on an alien planet sometimes 😉
