I’m a designer and developer, with a genuine passion for both.
I am educated in economics and multimedia design, and took several online courses as well as did a lot of “learning-by-doing” as a freelancer before joining the Appvestor team.
I’ve been shifting careers from online marketing, through IT customer care, to UI design and development. I’ve found that my passion is building the digital world.
Due to my background in marketing, it’s natural to me to prioritize users when creating solutions. Both marketing and UX include a lot of research, critical thinking, testing, verifying and adapting a product or service. Catering to the end-user has always been in focus for me, so that’s what I do with the interfaces I build. I strive to make business goals and user needs meet.
“I have known Petra for many years now and known her to be a knowledgeable designer. However, now I have the opportunity to call her my colleague in my academy to teach people programming. Despite the relatively short time that has passed since we started to work together, she has already demonstrated great skills in front end design and architecture. Petra works fast and precise, even under pressure and in challenging circumstances. She is a trustworthy colleague and I hope to work with her on the long run!”
