WHAT DOES A WORKING STUDENT DO AT CAMPUDUS?
At the Student Career Exchange Fair (SKB) of HAW College Landshut, I saw Campudus in the exhibition catalogue. At the fair itself, I had a very nice conversation with Max (CEO), who encouraged me to apply for a job as a „non-IT student“. I then applied as an intern in the UX/UI design department. After a trial day, where I got to know the office, the processes and the design tasks I did get an offer for my internship.
As an intern I was able to work on real projects from the very beginning and I gained a lot of experience quickly. After the three months I was offered to become a working student for UX/UI Design at the company. Since then I additionally took responsibility for other areas like the PR communication.

What is your typical day at Campudus?
My working day usually starts at 8 o'clock, sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later. After a hot cappuccino and a small breakfast, I start my work. First, I get an overview of new tasks and what needs to be done first.
Basically, we usually get concept requests from our customers or developers for a new digital tool, for a new website/online shop or a new software. We go through the requirements together and build the first wireframe concepts. Then we work our way step by step to the first click-dummy. During development we have to keep the user experience in mind, i.e. the user's experience with the product, and of course influence it positively with an easy-to-understand but fresh user interface.
Indeed, it could be a full-time job. But luckily, we are a well-tuned team and distribute the projects and tasks among all team members. I can arrange my working time of 20 hours per week in agreement with my colleagues and so I can usually use the afternoons to write my master's thesis. Here, too, I receive support from my colleagues.
„It`s fascinating to work in an environment where entire digital solutions are created. From the first idea on a piece of paper, to the first concepts in sketch, to the final programmed product, you are right in the middle of it all and always have the opportunity to further optimize the final product.“
Mainly I work on user-friendly interfaces for our products and tools. This is to make sure that we not only have a working software, but that you also have fun using it. Together with my colleague I also take care of the PR and communication at Campudus. There are no standard job profiles. Everyone works in the area they know best and for which they have the most enthusiasm.
Basically, I'm happy to be able to help out in as many projects as possible and gain experience. But I especially enjoy helping to develop an ERP system that is completely tailored to the customer's needs. That's where I was also able to put my business management background and my experience with ERP systems to good use.
I love our expresso coffee machine and mostly drink cappuccino because I like to draw creative patterns in the milk foam. And by the way, we have an internal challenge running for the best barista in the office, which I don’t wanna lose.
