The Org Welcomes Benjamin Ottensten to the Team as Product Manager

The Org Welcomes Benjamin Ottensten to the Team as Product Manager, The Org

Benjamin Ottensten has become the newest member of The Org’s team this week, taking on the role of Product Manager. He will be based in the Copenhagen office, and will report directly to CEO and Co-Founder Christian Wylonis.

His main responsibility as product manager is to drive the vision, strategy and execution of the digital product. Benjamin will spend his time working closely with The Org team, as well as its users, to figure out the best way to build on the platform. He says his goal is to help create “a delightful product that solves our users' problems, all while building a meaningful business.”

As Benjamin has a background in both product design and frontend development, he’s also well equipped to help out with the product delivery side of things.

Benjamin brings some valuable digital product development experience to the role. Prior to joining The Org, he worked in product design and frontend development for nearly four years at Danish peer-to-peer car sharing platform GoMore. A project he managed in this role was the development and design of "GoMore Keyless", a complex feature which made it possible for car renters to unlock and pick up the privately-owned cars by themselves.

Benjamin says he’s excited to join a company which is working to make businesses more transparent – both to people on the inside and outside of organisations. “In all aspects of company building, I really believe that an open and transparent working culture creates an environment for everyone to do great work.” He commented.

“Being an early-stage startup, I'm not only a part of scaling The Org, I'm also a part of figuring out which problems to solve in the first place.” He said.

Benjamin has a master's degree in digital design from the IT University of Copenhagen.

Outside of work, Benjamin is an avid climber. He likes to spend his time bouldering and wall climbing with friends at his local climbing gym.

All the Way From Romania, Meet The Org's Senior Backend Developer: Alexandra Birsan

Meet Alexandra Birsan, our newest Senior Backend Engineer. Born and raised in Romania, where she still currently resides, Alexandra will soon join our technical team in Copenhagen. As an avid traveler, we look forward to showing her around our beautiful city when the time comes! “I love to travel, meet people from different cultures, and be awed that even though we come from such diverse places and cultures, there are things that connect us,” Alexandra said. In her role as Senior Backend Developer, Alexandra will work with the team to develop features and translate business needs into technical solutions. She brings six years of experience in both outsourcing and product companies, where she created charts for better visualization of data within companies, worked for a provider of deferred payment solutions and created and maintained booking APIs for a company in the shipping industry. “I’m excited to work for The Org because I believe in the values the company promotes,” Alexandra said. “I feel transparency is of utmost importance, not only in the professional world but in all the other areas of life. I also feel that work should be an environment where everyone is empowered, feels safe to express her or his opinions, take ownership, and grow and learn from mistakes.” Alexandra is passionate about being part of a culture that allows employees to be more than just their job title, responsibilities,or KPIs, and feels that the workplace should enable everyone to express who they are fully as a person. As a senior team member, she's excited to continue fostering this inclusive mindset internally and help her team grow closer together. When she's not working, Alexandra loves to learn more about herself and the environment around her. “Outside of work, I am interested in discovering more about my inner world,” she said. “I love to read, dance, and challenge myself to do things that I never thought I would have done.” We can’t wait to see what you accomplish with us at The Org, Alexandra!
