Opbeat <3 Emil

We are super excited to introduce Emil Brøgger Kjer as the newest member of the Opbeat team. Emil is a jack-of-many-trades, and he will be able to help out with everything from tech ops to improving the core Opbeat platform, as well as making sure our agents are excellent.

Emil is originally Danish but he has been enjoying the Melbourne sun for the last four years. He and his girlfriend are now settling in Copenhagen, just in time for the summer.

After finishing his masters in Computer Science with a thesis in intelligent systems, Emil worked in a startup and at a major Australian e-commerce retailer. He has previously worked with a multitude of web stacks, as well as more hardcore CS topics such as pathfinding and evolutionary algorithms.

Emil lives an active life. He’s been enjoying the Australian surf the last couple of years, and he plans to return to mountain biking and kite surfing in the Copenhagen area.

We are really happy to have Emil on the team, and we can not wait to show him cool new spots around cozy old Copenhagen!
