Hi, I'm Amalie Kjelstrup!

Communications Manager

What I am all about.

I recently graduated from University of Copenhagen with a Master's degree in Communications and IT. During my 5 years of studying I also worked a number of student jobs, freelanced as a web designer and communications consultant, started a company and built and app with another student, and worked as an intern in Georgia, US for 5 months. You can read more about these things below.

I enjoy working in a collaborative environment with room for idea-generation, innovation and professional development. I have a strong passion for the field between technology and its users and have worked on several projects throughout my education surrounding user experiences and concept development, learning how to ensure technology fit the needs of a team. I would describe myself as a self-starter, I'm quick to adapt to a new environment, always happy to help a colleague and eager to learn.
