As a manager in EG Digital Welfare, I am responsible for our team of developers at junior-, mid-level and senior level. We develop some of Denmark's best software solutions for specialized areas within healthcare, supporting and treating citizens with disabilities, mental illness, and addiction.
My journey at EG began in 2016 as a Junior Developer. I was assigned a buddy, providing a valuable opportunity to understand EG as an organization and integrate into my team. Having a buddy was a great support when transitioning directly from education, as I did not have any practical experience. Since then, I have been on an incredible development journey with increasing responsibilities. Employee development is a top priority at EG, which I have become highly aware of through attending internal courses, receiving feedback from my manager, and having access to internal training materials.
When I joined EG, I did not imagine achieving the managerial responsibility I hold today. Back then, my mission was solely to become a skilled developer. However, as I evolved, new opportunities unfolded, leading me to pursue new goals. While I still enjoy working with programming, my most important task today is to be closely involved with my employees as their manager.
The days at EG are never alike, and I enjoy working in an organization that is constantly evolving at a high speed. The changing focus of tasks makes it exciting and challenging to come to work every day. I’m passionate about going to work, especially when my team reaches a sprint and celebrates their good teamwork together.
Working at EG is of great value to me because I can clearly see that we make a difference. The solutions we provide not only help our customers but also citizens in their everyday lives. It is very motivating for me that my work is of crucial importance to many people in our healthcare system. What makes EG a special workplace is the extraordinary social aspect between colleagues. We are not just colleagues but more than that, and this connection is fostered through various social activities. I’m very fond of being part of the journey that EG is on because I believe that we, as a workplace, have a huge potential to reach even greater heights.
