Iwona: my virtual CV

–> DOWNLOAD MY CV here 

I am double-educated in Sociology and Software Development. By passion and lifestyle, I am also an experience-designer, teacher and performer, where I practice complementary, more experimental ways of communicating with the world. Believe me, those skills can also be used for business, new education, (IT) projects. I will gladly tell you about it over a coffee.

 I speak very good English, Danish and Polish, have a rich network and international experience both from companies and educational institutions in Denmark and abroad. I am interested in how people, businesses and organizations communicate and develop, using progressive web technologies and new, sustainable ways of thinking.

My dream job? I believe dreams are created on the go – together with a team, partners and customers. My biggest strength is that I am specialist in being a generalist, who has both strategic overview, great communication and analytical skills, but also ability to dig into details, like nerding with a code. A job role is secondary, what matters to me is mutual investment and agile development through teamwork.
