Sketchnotes from Meet and Greet at Pentia

I am currenlty jobhunting for a fulltime position as Designer/UX’er/facilitator and was lucky enough to attend the Meet and Greet at @pentialife yesterday! Amazing Office at Islands Brygge in Copenhagen, a huge candy bar, star wars all over and most importantly: a people first mentality.

Walking around in the office I felt right at home amongst a suit of amor, Star Wars, LEGO and best of all…. a whole arcade room! They even had packman and Mario in there. When the developers have a thinking break from work they often collect LEGO. When you are hired you even get some LEGO! And every year there is a dress up day where everyone comes to work in costume!

They employ UX architechs as well as Juniors. You work as a junior for a year in a sort of trainee position. This means they are not afraid of hiring people right out of college. The company language is Danish, although you may be considered for a job even though you do not speak Danish much.

Sketchnotes from Meet & Greet at Stupid Studio

Sketchnotes from Meet & Greet @stupid_studio with David Adalberth and Anders Bo Bastian, planned by @queenofux from #Cphux . They presented a case for Carlsberg and went through 11 dilemmas and their learnings.

 

Their key learning was that you should make good decisions as you go. Afterwards they told us what they look for in the ideal ux’er, which for them in short, is one who is able to produce as well as design, and has heavy knowledge about both software and hardware.
