Die Team-Sprache bei Interactive Things ist Englisch, deshalb ist das Interview mit Benjamin ebenfalls in Englisch.
What do you value most in your daily work?
Benjamin: The pride in our craftsmanship, the quality of our work, and the joy of collaboration matter most to us. This is exemplified by the time and energy we invest in creating simple and durable results. Pushing boundaries of accepted norms and established processes. Embedding substance and care into everything we do.
How flexible are your working hours?
Benjamin: We strive to provide a stress-free and collaborative workplace where people can apply and improve their craft with pride every day. We provide flexible working hours and the possibility to work part-time. We are also open to working remotely although some on-location presence is expected.

From our interns to our partners, people are encouraged and supported with time and money to further their technical expertise.

«Although I view the world through the lens of a designer, I consider our scope of influence reaching beyond the ink on paper or the pixels on screen. I believe that we must develop a strong opinion about the intent and impact of our work.»
