Information technology has always interested Rasmus. Through gaming, interest expanded to how everything works.
"Pretty typical story. I feel like I'm in the right field", I like it here.
Rasmus still plays every now and then, but sports have become a more beloved hobby. During the winter months, he wakes up already at six in the morning on four weekdays to go to the gym next door. After that, he still has time to start and finish the working day early. Rasmus praises the freedom and flexibility of work offered by Knowit. During the summer, he might take a break in the middle of the day and go to the skate ramp next to his home to practise. Sometimes Rasmus works a longer day to be able to start his weekend earlier.
When asked about proposals for improvement, Rasmus jokes about starting Knowit's own skate club and setting up a remote office in some nice, warm country. Seriously, however, he is very pleased with his employer and especially with how much his technical skills have developed.
"In school you somewhat learn certain things in certain frames, but you can’t even compare that with what you learn at work. My skills have gone through the roof. In addition to technical skills, I have learned patience – things don’t happen as fast in the real world as you might think at school."
Makers of the Future, like Rasmus, always keep an eye on what’s to come. He is glad that Knowit’s attitude towards modern technologies is positive. Rasmus hasn’t run into any legacy solutions, which can be a hindrance in IT projects.
"In the post-covid future, it is likely that working from home, at least in the IT field, will be even more normal. As a result, the demand and need for stable and functional co-working platforms such as Microsoft Teams is growing. Also, the more work is done online, the more important it is that information moves securely and internet connections are solid. The emphasis on sustainability and sustainable operations will certainly also increase further in the IT field. In this aspect, Knowit is already riding the wave", Rasmus concludes.
