Hi Mathias, what’s your background?
I like to think of myself as a generalist with a keen eye for aesthetics and usability. Most recently, I spent 5 years at Reaktor as a designer working with clients in sectors like aviation, telecommunications and entertainment. I’ve been involved in everything from consumer apps to internal reporting tools to defining design strategies. Before that I did a 4-year stint in advertising, working various positions in both agencies and production companies. The past years have been a wonderful ride, but now it's time to see where this road leads.
What will you be working on at Neverthink? What are you most looking forward to?
This blog post is a bit overdue since it’s almost three months since I joined Neverthink as the VP of Product. I've already gotten to taste what it's like working here, and I have to say I like it. I’m constantly trying to figure out how the product should evolve, questioning the current solutions and ultimately trying to take the experience to the next level. Those were some pretty big words and it's a big challenge for sure. I'm looking forward to tackle it together with a team of very talented people.
What’s your passion outside of work?
I’m an avid mountain biker and on most weekends you’ll find me hitting the local trails. During the summer I try to do as many MTB enduro races I can. I’m also into backpacking and have a grand plan to complete my first long distance thru-hike in the not-too-distant future. When I’m not outside, I’m hanging out with my dog giving her tummy rubs.
