Advocating for the Human Factor of Technology
Empathizing with the user is crucial to create intuitive products that help customers get their job done in the best possible way.
All Q-Free technology is purpose-built to improve the life of people on the move by reducing congestion, accidents, and emissions, and it was the company’s vision that first caught my attention; “Changing the Movements of Life”. It resonates with me as a developer because my job is to see the solutions from a user perspective and advocate for the human factor of technology.
My focus is to assure a great user experience and ensure the user can complete his or her tasks as efficiently and intuitively as possible. To do so, I need to empathize with and place myself in the role of the end-user. If he or she completes the jobs without thinking about the technical solution itself, I’ve been successful, and I believe we are pretty much there now with our portal.
I am a photographer by profession and a scuba diver. My nickname back home in Belgrade was Steve the dancer because I also used to breakdance a lot. Now, I am firstly a father of two beautiful daughters and then a Senior Developer for Q-Free in Oslo, Norway .
The combination of experience, hard work, and a bit of luck brought me here. I found an online add and applied. Now, I have been with Q-Free since June 2019, and I love the fact that I am able to impact a lot of people’s everyday life by designing useful and intuitive products that improve the traffic situation across the globe. I am privileged to live in a green capital, Oslo. I hope our technology can help more people across the world feel the same privilege.
