Chopeh to CopenhagenPosted on 16.07.10 16 Comments
For those of you who have been following my plight to find a job in Copenhagen over the last few weeks, I’ve got a success story.
I’ve recently accepted a position at Podio, Copenhagen.
Podio is online organisation and collaboration software for professionals and organisations. It’s the Facebook equivalent for the workplace, and it has enough functionality to compete with the best guys out there in the current market with its out of the box tools. But not only that, it has an in-built platform to simply create your own online ‘apps’ that cater to your individual business needs. It’s beautifully powerful stuff, and is already changing the way I work.
Podio recently won the MIT Global Best Startup award, and if you spend a few minutes playing around with the tool it’s easy to see why. At the moment it’s only for cool kids so it’s invite only, but that doesn’t mean you can’t request to take a look (just hit the ‘Sign up here’ link on the page).
What’s my role going to be with Podio? Well, most of my time is going to be spent designing fresh new interfaces and slick interactions; ensuring the customer experience of the site is as efficient and easy as possible. It’s going to be a tough task as the functionality and flexibility of the Podio platform is mind blowing, condensing it down into manageable easy-to-learn chunks isn’t going to be a walk in the park. But I’m ready for it, I’m so ready for it.
Oh, and I managed to get this position thanks to you guys tweeting my copenhagen.chopeh.com site. I’m trying to track down the specific tweet that lead to the job, but a massive thank you to all who shared the link. I was really blown away by the amount of support I got. Simply put - I love you guys.
See you in Copenhagen. I need some local friends now so invite me out for beers and wild parties!
