Elin – Android Developer
Meet Elin, one of our app developers for the Android platform. Elin has been part of Sleep Cycle for several years and she has been a key stakeholder in the development of Sleep Cycle’s app for Android.
What do you love most about your role?
I’m an app developer for the Android platform and I love programming and the problem solving you get to do. I also love that I get to learn new things regularly.
Describe Sleep Cycle in three words?
Open, caring, developing.
Why should a prospective candidate choose Sleep Cycle as an employer?
It may sound like a cliche, but at Sleep Cycle we really do care. We care about the employees and about our app users. As an employee you get the support and opportunity to develop and grow in your role. You will learn new things and work with some of the most amazing people in the industry. Everyone is so open and welcoming, and makes going to work fun every day.
Top moment at Sleep Cycle?
My first month at Sleep Cycle we had a conference at a spa and in the evening before dinner, we all gathered at a heated outdoor pool. It was February and it was snowing with these big fluffy flakes. It was magical to sit in the hot water with the dark sky above and these cold snowflakes falling on top of us. It was quite the ice-breaker, I really felt welcome and like I belonged.
Favorite Sleep Cycle feature?
I love the Smart Alarm. Since I started using the Sleep Cycle app my mornings have become so much better. I wake up and have no trouble getting out of bed, feeling rested and energized. To be woken up in a light sleep phase really makes a difference to my day.
“Never, never, never give up.”
I think this is one of the most important things in life. You can do almost anything as long as you persevere. Of course, you can change the path you are taking, but if you really want something, don’t give up on it.
How do you preferably spend a Saturday evening?
I love being at home, eating some good takeaway and watching a movie with my husband and my cats.
