What have you done before joining Quickbit?

From the beginning I was a journalist but for the past eight years I have worked with digital product development in roles as product owner and team lead at Expressen and Bonnier News.

What does a Product Manager do at Quickbit?

First and foremost, I make sure that we develop our products to maximize the value for our users. To get there, I support our awesome development teams in setting vision, KPIs, roadmaps and priorities and collaborate with several different roles and cutting-edge competencies to create the best possible products.

What made you choose to join Quickbit?

Mainly because Quickbit have the chance to build products that change the way our users do business in everyday life, by using new technology. But also because Quickbit has a great team, with incredibly knowledgeable and nice colleagues who want to build a company with culture and values that I share.
