Who are the people who make Uku better every day? In this post, I will introduce you to two members of the Uku team, Maarja and Berit, under whose guidance wonderful things happen daily. Maarja is a quality assurance analyst on the Uku team. Thanks to her, problems that may arise during the daily use of Uku will be solved. Berit is the voice of Uku. Her task is to ensure that everything new and essential reaches the users.

Get to know them in the interviews below:


Uku team member Maarja

1) Maarja, introduce yourself and your work in Uku?

My name is Maarja, and I have been working as a quality assurance analyst in the Uku team since May. I am responsible for ensuring that the developed features meet the requirements and that the entire application runs smoothly before each update. In addition, I help our customer support with more technical questions from customers.

2) What is your relationship with accounting and daily time tracking?

Working in IT, time tracking has always been a natural part of my day. Previously, however, on other platforms. Now, using Uku is fast and easy.

3) How did you find the Uku team?

I came across this job ad by chance, which immediately appealed to me. I recognized myself in it immediately. People here are friendly, tight-knit, and committed to the mission. It's good to work in such an environment. Artify is like a hidden gem.

4) How do you spend your free time?

I have small children and devote my free time to my family. One of my interests is conscious breathing. I study breathwork therapy as a hobby and this has greatly expanded my world.

5) What is a quote or a principle that you consider important?

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right either way." Henry Ford

Maarja's team member Hans has described her:

"Maarja is a calm, detail-oriented and analytical person. Probably the perfect software developer profile. She has a strong technical background as a tester and can analyze problems from different angles. When in trouble, she is not afraid to ask for help. Despite her modesty, she is a good communicator."


Uku team member Berit

1) Berit, introduce yourself and your work in Uku?

I am Uku's brand and communication manager. I have taken it upon myself to sha Uku's voice and appearance and ensure that everything necessary reaches the users.

2) What is your relationship with accounting and daily time tracking?

I have worked in marketing for over 10 years. Budget planning, project management, analysis, and meeting deadlines are closely related to marketing. Time tracking is one of the keys to success and is becoming increasingly important in the digital age when others expect us to react quickly.

3) How did you find the Uku team?

I believe that everything in life happens for a reason. I was open to new challenges and thought for myself about which environment I wanted to work in. I can say that I am lucky because I work in exactly the kind of team I wanted.

4) How do you spend your free time?

My friends are not surprised if I have a paint stain on my clothes or my elbow because I love painting, crafting, and doing repairs. That is my way of expression, grounding, and the time to organize my thoughts. I enjoy music and have also been involved in different dance styles in my life - learning and teaching them. I'm thirsty for experiences. I look for challenges, snowboarding in the winter and jet skiing in the summer. 

5) What is a quote or a principle that you consider important?

At the moment, I think it is important to repeat to myself: "I am the most important." First, you must take care of yourself and love yourself.

Berit's team member Keit has described her

"Berit is brave and friendly. Having worked at Uku for only a few months, she has enthusiastically taken on several important projects. Together we will do great things."
