I was 20 years old when I entered a pink building in Oslo for my first (real) job interview. After only one conversation, I was offered a job, and I accepted it on the spot. Little did I knew that I was going to work for this company called Intility for 14 years.
Opportunities and growth
14 years is a very long time, but not that long considering the circumstances. Of course, I have considered a move earlier, but I’m glad I waited this long.
When I accepted the offer in 2007. Intlity had around 80 full-time employees. Today, a little more than a decade later, they have around 400 employees. Own their own building in the heart of Oslo and the name of a football (soccer) stadium.
Since 2007 I have been trusted with a variety of responsibilities, the opportunity, and backing to form my own career. Resulting in international speaking gigs and two Microsoft MVP awards.
I am very grateful to have played a part in this journey, but this is strange times. Working from home since March gave me a lot of time to think and I believe I made the correct choice.
Platforms are the future
Intility has grown from an IT outsourcing and hosting provider to becoming a platform for companies wanting to grow, based on technology.
I believe that technology platforms are going to shape the future. And when I was offered a job at yet another successful, Norwegian technology platform I wanted to join.
I am happy to announce I have accepted a position as TechLead for platforms at Vipps.
Vipps is a Technology and identity platform which has revolutionized how we look at B2c and friend payments in Norway and are now expanding to Europe with their mobile payment solution.
Not knowing what to expect, I am surely looking forward to joining another Norwegian tech rocket. Working with the technology I love.
