Digital Producer

Full name: Lennert Verbesselt / Home office: Kessel-Lo (soon)/ At Wieni since 2022 / Wieni ID: #52

What do you do at Wieni?

I am a digital producer which means I combine different roles. First of all UX research where I talk to people, prepare and facilitate workshops. But also UI design, frontend development and low-code programming.

What did you do before?

I studied International Digital Product Architect (IDPA) at Thomas More. It is rather new, as I am part of the first batch to graduate. It was really different, since we had no real exams and everything was project based, with a lot of focus on your autonomy as a student. We also had to start our own company during the final year, in which I grew more towards managing instead of programming. But I still really like programming and learning about new things in the tech industry. 

What was the most interesting part of your internship at Wieni?

That is easy. Asynchronous work. It was something I had never experienced before, but it works really well for me. It was quite out of my comfort zone when I had to record my first Loom video, but I soon got a hang of it. Everyday at the office would never work for me.

What is your unique skill?

I can juggle quite well :). Next to that I am a strong communicator. Something I grew a lot in the past year as CEO of a small enterprise. I am also always eager to learn new things. 

What do you like to do outside of work?

I play tennis and padel, and I also played the saxophone for a long time. In my spare time, I love watching movies and series. My favourite movie is La La Land (but Inception is a close second), and my all-time favourite series is Sherlock. I’m always open for new suggestions, so if you have any recommendations, shoot!
