Q. Tell us about your career journey at Pendula.
I started at Pendula while I was still doing my undergrad at USYD. I started off as a part-time Junior Designer, and found a real enjoyment in not only collaborating with our design team, but also getting to know the legends behind the Pendula product itself (engineers and product peeps!). And, although I graduated soon after starting my Pendula journey, I certainly haven’t stopped learning. My interest in product design was something that was nurtured and highly encouraged by Pendula, and I soon started working on the product as a Product Designer. It’s been a fantastic experience, and super rewarding when we get to celebrate our great wins as a team. I couldn’t ask for a better place to kickstart my career in product.
Q. What do you think makes Pendula a great place to work?
As corny as it sounds, I’ve never met a better bunch. I was afraid I had rose-colored glasses on in the beginning, especially directly comparing to uni groups… but they truly are fantastic people in and out of work and it makes my day to day (and even the bumps in the road!) super enjoyable. I also like playing with all of the dogs that come into the office. Definitely not biased because of that… no no…
Q. What's your favourite thing about coming to work?
We get to work together in a super cool spot in the heart of Surry Hills. It’s a fantastic location and there’s so much to do. Frequent team outings, after work drinks, lunches etc etc. Not only that, but I’ve also had the opportunity on multiple occasions to travel to our Brisbane office to work on product directly with our awesome engineering team. It’s always a great day coming in to the Pendula office!
