Work Experience

Consultant
Dandy People, Stockholm 2017-

Agile UX/CX-Designer
Electrolux, Stockholm, 2017

  • UX/UI/CX-designer creating apps and improving User Experience.
  • Recently developed the #elunchXP project app with Lean UX mindset where we created an app in 5 days. The project mission was to improve the lunch experience among employees in the canteen in Electrolux HQ and try to learn from the Lean approach for future project development.
  • We chose to build an app as the approach which we did by:
    1) Creating a first draft of the MVP
    2) Collected user feedback and did testing at the same time to develop it further.
    3) Developed the app further in iterations.
  • The result was impressive and became a big hit within the Electrolux organization and we reached a big interest from stakeholders that saw the benefits with working with MVPs and Agile.
