New markets, more clients, tremendous ideas and all the big ambitions we have, take great minds to take on! A flow of new energy and forces is therefore a very welcome process.
Joel is not really that new of a face since he’s been around the office for the last couple of months working on his Master thesis and is now just switching a workplace and joining the Engineering team. We wouldn’t want to miss a talent like that, after doing a great job with his thesis work focusing on algorithms and machine learning (more on that in a coming separate post from Joel himself). According to a very accurate(!) personality test he could’ve been described by the character of Sheldon of the Big Bang Theory. How cool is that! Apart from the fact that he’s grown up on an island north of Gothenburg and is a snowboarder - doubt Sheldon likes that(!) - they are just identical.
Long winter days in Sweden are slowly taking a turn; Gothenburg rainy as always, Stockholm rarely lit by sun but since Christmas things have been exciting and intense enough that no one seems to even care about the weather anymore.
The last couple of months our offices have just been bursting of positive energy and excitement. Restless and eager to make things happen we almost need to rein ourselves in from time to time. After the first investment round closed in the late autumn last year big steps forward have been taken in our product development. We have released loads of new features and this week we will launch a brand new version of Rich, with new design and better insight inspiring reports than ever.
