What Karin does

She designs concepts, develops interactive prototypes from these and then carries out user tests for validation. She is involved in solving usability problems in applications and supports our customer projects with a focus on good user guidance.

Her ability to understand the needs of users and the requirements of our customers enables her to develop customized solutions that benefit both our projects and our team. In addition, her ability to empathize with the needs of others strengthens the team culture and contributes significantly to the management of our company.

Karin is involved in the open source community and can be found at one conference or another.

Outside of work, she can be found mountain biking in the Swiss Alps. She regularly travels around the country in her camper van in search of the next bike adventure.

She can also be found lecturing at various universities of applied sciences on topics such as User Experience, Customer Centricity and New Work.

In the CAS Innovative Work Environments: New Work & Collaboration, Karin explains the implementation of decentralized leadership and collaboration in remote teams.

“I truly believe that it makes me a better designer and a more sensible human being, as I tend to see and appreciate the creative solutions people come up with in other parts of the world, even though many tend to have far more constraints than we have at home.”
