Meet Martyna Gajaszek-Hansen

Nordija´s Systems Developer from Poland

About Martyna

Martyna is originally from a small town in central-eastern Poland, Ryki. She moved to Denmark almost 7 years ago, right after high school, to study Multimedia Design and Communication in Køge at Zealand Institute of Business and Technology.

After finishing up her AP degree, Tina moved to Copenhagen and took the top-up program in Web Development at KEA as a part of her Bachelor degree.

Currently, she lives in an apartment together with her husband, in a hype district of Nordvest in Copenhagen.

What brings you to Denmark?

My danish adventure was a total coincidence. I wanted to study at a Polish university in Poznań with the possibility of traveling and exploring the world. However, my godfather challenged me, wondering if I would be able to survive in a foreign country, all on my own. I took the challenge without any hesitation and chose the study which I found most interesting. Within 3 months I managed to become self-sufficient, explore more interests, and fell in love with Denmark.

Why and when did you join Nordija?

During my bachelor studies, I dropped part-time work at a restaurant and started looking for some study-relevant jobs. By that time I already had some experience from a small startup, Foopla, where I worked as a developer/UX designer; however, I wanted to focus more on programming. I found working with media and new technologies particularly interesting and therefore applied for a student position at Nordija. I enjoyed working with code, programming real-life applications and that is why later on I took my internship and did the Bachelor thesis in Nordija too.
When I was done with my degree I couldn’t imagine developing myself anywhere else but at Nordija.

Role at Nordija

I do the front-end magic by bringing data to life and visualizing it. Whatever a customer can see, click, or touch is a part of my work. As a systems developer, I develop our software components (widgets) used across platforms, with a focus on multiscreen devices like phones/web as well as set-top boxes. I like to think that great is not enough, but it’s a good beginning.

What do you enjoy the most about Nordija´s culture?

Definitely the chilled atmosphere. There is no screaming and shouting. When it comes to problem-solving, we sit together, analyze it, and think through the solution before developing it. Aside from the working process, I think people are a big part of Nordija’s culture too; the fact that you can come over and talk with anybody is simply amazing.

What do you like to do when you aren’t working? And what are your interests and passions outside of work?

Definitely, it’s traveling. Small and big trips always result in new experiences. During weekends I like to go out and explore local forests and coastlines. Besides that, I always enjoy a good horror/thriller book, some sports activities (dancing, biking, rollerskating). Occasionally I would take a canvas and do some painting when the weather doesn’t allow going out. From time to time, I would find myself sitting in front of the computer, playing around with new technologies, and (programming) frameworks.

Looking forward to connecting with you.
