R&D User-Interface Design

Anyone who spends the whole day in front of a computer is glad anytime they run into an attractive user interface in an up-to-date style. Intuitive user navigation and balancing design and usability are decisive factors. These are the things that influence how satisfied a user is when using software. OSIS has recognized how crucial this is and invests in this area for that very reason.
I am a trained digital media designer. This was where I first acquired the fundamentals. I got the chance to enhance these skills during my subsequent IT design studies. I have been working at OSIS since 2007. I am in charge of the user interface area within software development. This is where I can pursue my passion for making software more appealing, more user friendly. And I also get to apply the usability skills I learnt during my studies.

Fortunately, I've got people who are receptive to new approaches in the OSIS software department. It's satisfying to see how new ideas and other points of view are accepted and then implemented. Sometimes I do have some persuading to do in certain instances, especially when I need to encourage the developers to let go of some rather 'retro'-looking buttons and user interfaces that they've grown very fond of. Sometimes the discussions get pretty intense. But that's just part of the job. And in such a fruitful working atmosphere like at OSIS and the pleasant co-workers, even meetings of this kind are good fun
