Things move fast at the imgZine HQ. A couple of weeks ago we announced our greatly anticipated U.S. launch, a fantastic set of apps has been published on our platform recently and some friendly faces have joined our crew.
About four months ago we welcomed a new project manager: Ruud Kaaij. Ruud worked in the print industry for 23 years and has extensive experience in management and sales. He studied typography and print techniques in Amsterdam and has always been interested in editorial design. Besides bringing his graphics expertise into our team, Ruud is helping us streamline our project management processes and assisting us with internal communication.
In Ruud’s own words: “I find it really inspiring to be at the forefront of digital publishing and I really admire our team. We’ve evolved really quickly as an organization and are always thinking ahead. It’s incredible to part of such a young company that’s already working with large brands.”
And speaking of thinking ahead, we also recruited a new data specialist this February. His name is Sarunas Simaitis. Sarunas studied Econometrics at Vilnius University in Lithuania and is currently doing a Master in Stochastics and Financial Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam. His main task is assisting us in the development of new statistical models for our analytics dashboard. Sarunas’ work will help us give our clients more insight into their audience’s reading behaviour.
We asked Sarunas what he liked most about working at imgZine so far and this is what he said: “I really like the company’s flat structure and the diversity of the team in terms of nationalities, age groups and perspectives. I also love having family-like dinners with colleagues!”
Welcome to the team guys!
