Position at Cadpeople: Project Manager
How long at Cadpeople: 1.5 years
What is the most exciting thing about working at Cadpeople?
The desire and courage to always aspire to higher things. There is never a dull moment here. There is always some new technology, an angle we haven’t tried yet or a creative idea to test.
What attracted you to Cadpeople when you applied for a job here?
The room for differences everywhere – including in solutions that have already been delivered. Plus, I quickly got the feeling that I would have some brilliant and fun colleagues – and I was right!
What is the most important characteristic of a project manager here at Cadpeople?
Well, none of the project managers at Cadpeople are very much alike, but none of us are “spreadsheet project managers”. We are more actively involved, and that requires a certain technical knowledge and the ability to juggle numbers, manage resources and define concepts all at once. So, character traits … hmm … with flexibility, big ears and timely care, you go far.
Can you describe Cadpeople in one word or sentence?
We say “We create powerful visual experiences” – and I actually think that fits very well.
What do you look forward to the rest of 2018?
I look forward to completing a project in which we are virtually training welfare technologies. It is a combination of training, gamification and empathy simulation. To work with immersive experiences in this way is a good example of how we continue to push the limits and how VR can make a difference.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have two boys and they always come first. Luckily, I have raised them, so they love museums, travelling and culinary experiences, so my spare time isn’t all about soccer, Fortnite and scouts. I do also run, moving more into trail runs and OCR races. It’s a great feeling to come home covered in mud with bruises and sore arms. Actually, we are just a bunch of girlfriends teaming up to run, but it seems more permanent when we call it a club. So we do.
