How our software development is developing


Our speakers


Ilaria works as interaction designer in team «Darwin». This team is all about personalisation and has the challenging task of continuously improving the customer experience in the online shop. Whether she's cooking, designing, decorating or on her way to dancing class; Illaria is (almost) always accompanied by a hip-hop beat.


Snigdha works in product development in team «Endeavour». This team handles all requests and ideas for improvements relating to our search functionality and makes sure our customers find the products and information they're looking for in an easy and quick way. Snigdha is developer by profession, dancer by passion and explorer by curiosity.


Alicia works in team «Rocket», which looks after the Digitec Galaxus community and is responsible for the discussion forums and ratings around products as well as content management. When she's not studying at uni, Alicia is travelling to far-away countries and living the globetrotter life.
