Emil Østergaard has joined The Org’s growing engineering team as a Frontend Developer. Emil, who reports to Senior Frontend Developer Lukas Bacevičius, will work from Copenhagen, Denmark on a part-time basis as he pursues a degree in software development.
In his role, Emil works work closely with Lukas and the product team to improve and expand the experience for the end-user.
He is excited to work in the fast-paced environment of a growing startup and have a direct impact on the product. “Getting to move fast and have a lot of learning opportunities is really nice," Emil stated. “I also love how much influence I have when deciding the shape and direction for the frontend/ui codebase.”
Emil graduated high school in 2019 and as a self-taught programmer, he started working as a full-time frontend developer at Famly, a small Copenhagen-based startup. He worked full-time at Famly for nine months before transitioning to a part-time role to make room for a bachelor’s degree in software development at the IT University of Copenhagen on the side.
When he’s not studying or working at The Org, Emil can be found working out (bouldering is his current sport of choice). He also loves love spending time with friends and playing board games.
Emil is originally from Copenhagen but lived most of my life in a small town called Slagelse about an hour outside of the city.
