What better way to spend the majority of your work life than having a lot of fun, juggling with many tasks every day, facing challenges, working with committed people, and learning new stuff all the time? For over 20 years, Mette has done exactly that and has so enjoyed the ride. Technical communication became the love of her (work) life.
Mette has worked for small and medium-sized companies, such as Microsoft and Baan, and developed contents for a variety of products – printer solutions, CRM systems, mashup software. She joined e-Boks in the beginning of 2017. Founded in 2001, e-Boks is well-reputed and widely known in the Nordic countries as the key digitalization company. On an annual basis, the company sends documents to more than 12 million citizens and 30,000 corporate entities in the Nordic countries. And the number is growing. The HQ in Copenhagen employs around 60 people. The company has country offices in Norway and Sweden, just as there is a team of developers in Ukraine. At e-Boks, Mette is responsible for the external product documentation and the handling of the localized versions of the e-Boks application accessed by citizens and corporate entities.
Mette also serves as a volunteer judge within the Society of Technical Communication (STC) at international (documentation) competitions. She herself is a 3-time STC award winner (design and development of online Help and tutorials, and co-editing a book published by Microsoft Press).
