I am keen to work at companies that are investing their resources into digital transformation be it pivoting from a product company to a full solution provider such as Belden, or companies that are preparing to navigate the wave of industry 5.0. Or a company such as Duolingo that is changing the way.
– For instance, I am interested in the interplay between data-driven decision-making and digitalization, Data-driven decision-making model based on artificial intelligence, data-driven decision making for industry 5.0. I am also intrigued by how successfully Duolingo has been able to stand out in a crowded market of language-learning apps, all thanks to its exceptional UX and UI design. The app’s clean interface, gamification, seamless learning experience, personalization, and mobile-friendly approach have set it apart and I would love to work at Duolingo.
