Hey John, what were you doing before you joined Scandit?
I was working for an Innovation & Strategy consulting firm.
Impressive! So, what made you join Scandit?
I got a very strong impression from the leadership team when I first met them and was quickly convinced about the opportunity Scandit has.
Great! What do you do on a day to day basis John?
I work with the team to make our product better every day. It’s exciting to be part of something big.
It does sound exciting, yes. But what impact does your role have in the overall business?
I get to participate in shaping the company’s product strategy which is vitally important for the future success of Scandit.
So, what would you say is the most challenging aspect of your role?
We’re moving around in largely unchartered territory, so there’s no playbook for how to get it right.
What do you like most about your role John?
The versatility. I get to wear an incredible amount of different hats and can apply a broad set of skills like no other place I’ve ever worked before.
That’s great to hear! Tell us about the Product team, what are they like?
They’re awesome, very talented, hard working and professional. We’re all pulling in the same direction.
What’s the atmosphere like? Do you socialise much with your colleagues?
There’s a real team spirit. We have dinner or drinks to celebrate milestones and all enjoy the occasional company outing.
What excites you about the journey you are on with Scandit?
As I mentioned above, the opportunity to be part of something big.
You’ve been at Scandit a few years now John, what do you think of the founders?
They are a smart and dedicated group of guys with strong vision and execution skills.
It’s been great getting to know you a bit more. Finally, what do you enjoy outside work?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children.
