What Inspires you? What motivates you?

Nina Litty: How can growth and positivity in life not be motivating? It is particularly inspiring and tangible when you can contribute and expand your knowledge, when great teams amplify ideas, and when expectations are exceeded. Personally, I am motivated by technological breakthroughs that provide effortless user experiences. As a counterbalance, nature, sports, good weather, and social connections are irreplaceable for me.

How would you describe your development in the company?

Nina Litty: Starting as an icon designer and a student (often referred to as the dishwasher among the software designers), I learned from great team leaders and grew through a variety of projects. Analyzing complex HMIs in mechanical and plant engineering, and improving UX for more seamless apps have been a part of my everyday life for four years. Today, I am an expert in methodical user research, user experience, and interface design at Consulteer, Office Rhine Valley.

What was your biggest challenge and how did you overcome it?

Nina Litty: Multitasking and switching tasks between subjects at the university and increasing responsibilities at work were a challenge. The restrictions due to the pandemic have of course additionally limited direct social contact with work colleagues, fellow students and customers. Fortunately, there are always creative ways and I remember many good moments as well.

What was your biggest achievement that you are proud of?

Nina Litty: The variety of projects is what makes this job exciting. Nevertheless, I am particularly proud of having designed a web tool for a German house builder that guides customers effortlessly and with pleasure through the house planning process. A high degree of freedom and close communication with the client made it possible to completely redesign the service.

Another great project was an innovation in the medical and beauty industry, where I had the opportunity to gather user feedback on an international basis and work closely with a large cross-functional software team.

What can you say about your working place and environment?

Nina Litty: I love seeing Lake Constance and the mountains when I take the train to work. The location and network in the Rhine Valley inspire me, not only because of the university and the many opportunities it offers but also in combination with the great landscape, it suits me perfectly!

What is your favorite Consulteer value and why?

Nina Litty: "All for One" because a well-coordinated team is irreplaceable and fun!

Human. Technology. Together.
