Jens Schmidt Joins The Org’s Engineering Team Full-Time
Jens Schmidt transitions into a full-time Software Development Engineer position at The Org, following his work as Student Developer. Jens will continue to report directly to The Org’s CTO and Co-Founder Andreas Jarbøl.
Jens will be working as part of the engineering team where he will be responsible for the development of new initiatives and assist in maintaining the backend at The Org.
Jens enjoys the fast pace and wide responsibility that comes with working at a tech startup. He said, “I get to design the solution, develop the solution, test the solution, deploy the solution, and maintain that solution. It’s interesting to be part of all the aspects of the development and a sharp contrast to the consulting world.”
Before joining The Org, Jens helped develop Sitecore solutions at Pentia A/S, where he worked as a Backend Developer. He kick-started his career as a Digital Marketing Specialist for Aasted ApS where he was responsible for their digital presence, including the acquisition of a new website. Jens has held several teaching assistant positions at the IT University of Copenhagen in parallel to his studies and student positions.
His passion for programming extends outside of the workplace, as in his free time he works on hobby projects and does volunteer work at the Danish Youth Association of Science and at Coding Pirates (a coding camp for kids).
Jens also enjoys driving Off-Road (4x4 vehicles), playing badminton, and board games. He considers himself “a bit of a video game nerd as well” and continues to ramble on about game jams and conventions he missed this year.
