Nordcloudian story of Briana Romero!

1. Where are you from and how did you end up at Nordcloud?

I’m from northern california, USA and moved to Finland about eight years ago as an exchange student and intended just to just stay a few months. The point to being a part of Nordcloud today and when I moved involved a lot of different jobs, and experiences plus completing my masters in design. After I started to specialize more in service design in Finland I knew I had found a career I could get passionate about, and I learned more about Nordcloud after some research and applied for an open position. 

2. What is your role and your core competence?

I am a service designer but also do UX design. I am specialized in CX customer experience & UX user experience design and also have a background in sustainability processes and teaching. 

3. What sets you on fire / what’s your favourite thing technically with public cloud?

It’s exciting that the public cloud could lead the door to a more sustainable future when it’s in the right hands. It’s also interesting to learn something I thought I would not learn so much about since my role is in design. 

4. What do you like most about working at Nordcloud?

I like the ability to learn more all the time and bring up new ideas for ways to work with clients and how to integrate service design more. It’s also cool to get the chance to learn about development too. 

5. What is the most useful thing you have learned at Nordcloud?

 Be flexible and brave with ideas about design. You never know what project you will be in and where you can use different skills. 

6. What do you do outside work?

 I like a lot of outdoor sports as well as dancing. My hobbies really change during the season though since I moved to Finland. I love the sauna and always find a way to go. I also love making art and visiting new cafes, & listening to good music.

7. Best Nordcloudian memory?

Taking an inprov course during our team day was pretty fun. I enjoy also sharing knowledge about design and processes with our clients when they don’t know what it is. When doing a workshop it’s awesome when you can get in the creative flow and ideas start coming out easily.
