Welcome aboard! We are thrilled to announce Ørjan Berger as part of our new pioneer team.

Ørjan Berger excels in domain understanding, frontend development, and UX design. He is a thoughtful candidate with valuable experience from the Navy. Among 70 applicants, Ørjan was the top choice for frontend and UX roles. So far, he has shown a great understanding of designing and creating satisfying, efficient, and smart solutions for our UX.

In the past, Ørjan has spent an impressive 11 years in the Norwegian Navy on different frigates. For seven of those years, he was a Sonar Operator and technician. He has also worked as an instructor within the anti-submarine warfare division. This maritime experience, combined with his two years of front-end development education, made him the perfect candidate.

“Ørjan delivered an exceptionally impressive finale interview, where his background in the navy truly shone through as he discussed software solutions for maritime usage. His extensive experience not only showcased his expertise but also highlighted his ability to comprehend customer needs and craft intuitive user interfaces.”

Why ScanReach?

“I selected ScanReach as my ideal workplace because I believe it offers an excellent opportunity to learn and enhance my skills as a front-end developer. My background in the marine industry allows me to recognise numerous features at ScanReach that would have seamlessly integrated with the ships I sailed on in the past. I am eager to contribute to the team and bridge the gap between my marine experience and software development to create innovative solutions for the maritime domain.”

What is your favourite feature of the ScanReach OWC network?

“One aspect of the OWC network that excites me the most is ConnectPOB. Ensuring the safety of personnel onboard is of utmost importance in the maritime industry, and it’s a cause I am passionate about. ConnectPOB’s potential to enhance safety measures is vast, and I am enthusiastic about contributing my insights and creative ideas to further improve its capabilities. By bringing in fresh perspectives, I hope to actively contribute to making marine operations even safer and more efficient through the OWC network.”

Ørjan is going to be an excellent asset to our company!
