I got a chance to relocate to Berlin inside the company and I took that opportunity to gain international experience and re-learn German language.
My job continues as it was in Helsinki studio, although the studio is newer and that demands also some internal development related tasks, which I do love a lot. I am very into developing internal processes and culture to be more human centric and output good employee experience.
