My internship at Pit

“Pit: We make juicy web apps, apps that are easy and fun to use and your customers will love!” Having read these sentences, I decided to meet Pit. Why? Joep and Rowan love people, treat their customers well and try to make their life a little bit easier for those. At least; that’s what their website says. Those things convinced me to apply for an internship and I got it!

My daily activities at Pit vary from creating interaction designs, through writing usability reviews, testing prototypes with users, to front-end development on prototypes and end products. I’m developing for Pit itself, but I’m also involved in customer projects. Pit aims at enhancing the web, and creating better applications – which they test thoroughly. User testing is the core of my personal project at Pit. The advantage behind the digital products is the possibility to improve them while they are already in use, yet finding right people willing to test is a hassle. We try to build a solution to this – a platform where testers and companies looking for testers can come together. More on this soon!

My opinion on Pit? Great company with a laid-back atmosphere, two motivated, progressive men – experts in their field of study. Clients come first, but Rowan and Joep always stay in control of their own expertise.
