Life at Inchoo

Behind the scenes of Inchoo Design team: a talk with Katarina Dijakovic

Have you noticed the fresh look on our blog posts? Recently our Inchoo design team has been putting a lot of effort into our featured images, but also working on a great portfolio through various projects along with evolving Inchoo’s identity. Our usability audit is now just one of their services because with the newest addition to the team, Katarina Dijakovic, they’re more versatile than ever.

That’s why we decided to talk to Katarina and learn a bit about what inspires her, what keeps her going and how she found herself in eCommerce.

Here you have an interview with her – about technicalities, design hacks and about what she thinks of design in eCommerce now when there’s a certain mileage in her Inchoo shoes.

Do not accept this project if you…

When you’re communicating with a lot of people from all over the world, it’s inevitable there’s going to be a lot of glitches anyway. But, when you’re working in eCommerce, especially Magento sales, things just get a tad more complicated and, at times, quite funny.

Here are some of my favorite not-so-ordinary inquiries and quotes from “the trenches”. All of these are real-life examples.

Wrapping up Meet Magento October

Working at Inchoo means several things. One of them is that you’re a part of the community.

Internally, you are a part of the team. Locally, you contribute to developing various IT initiatives. But, internationally, you are a part of Magento enthusiasts and passion driven individuals.

Many of them gather at Meet Magento events and October was all about that.

So, where did we go and what did we do this October around?

They say December is the month of surprises and even though we (and our clients) love the Christmas shopping spree (which may not be a surprise at all), excitement can be found even in September – if we’re talking Meet Magentos and we are.

First of the many upcoming community organized Meet Magentos is Meet Magento Belarus where our Mladen Ristić is one of the speakers.

SmashingConf New York 2015 – a review by Inchoo

Life at Inchoo is not all about hard work. It is also about having fun doing what you love, acquiring new skills and upgrading existing ones to get the big picture and getting the chance to learn from the experience of others. Learning from experiences of others is an important part of individual personal growth and success which benefit greatly to everyone; from said individuals, their team, Inchoo, and ultimately our clients who get to reap the fruits of one’s experiences and views. After all, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Following that philosophy, Inchooers can often be seen attending and speaking at various conferences in various parts of the world. Gathering knowledge through experiences of others, traveling and getting to see the world, meeting people and eventually understanding what makes someone tick – all of that results in always fresh ideas that help us solve the problems we encounter every day.

How one intern evolved into an Inchooer

Tweak it. Shape it. Place it. Grab it. (It being the article or it being the knowledge.)

Push the limits. Push the limits again.

And start again.

Now.

Now, indeed, is your chance.

What way to sum up 3 years of volunteering experience and projects with a special focus on last four weeks of my life – here’s how a mind grows when nurtured right. A story about me and Inchoo.

My sales and marketing internship at Inchoo

My month of April was reserved for a completely new experience in 2015 – sales and marketing internship at Inchoo. I spent four weeks in Gdansk, sales & partially marketing team named after the city in Poland (all of the Inchoo teams are named after cities across the world).

This team is the starting point for all forms of business – no matter if it’s smaller SEO jobs or making a web shop from scratch, sales & marketing is where the inquiries come to and where communication transforms into project that later on finds its way to Inchoo’s designers and developers.

Previous interns have already praised their experience at Inchoo so I’ll try to keep it to a minimum. One of them actually started working full time just as I was starting my internship. An excellent example how your internship can become something more at Inchoo.

Introducing Magento Certified Customer and Customer Plus certification

After we saw the rollout of four different certification programs by Magento aimed at developers, project managers and business analysts (all those behind-the-scenes folks), we couldn’t help but feel there was something missing. There was nothing in store for the ones in the very heart of every eCommerce transaction – the customers.

So, we have joined forces with several of our favorite Magento community members gathered around #RealMagento hashtag and are proud to present the first unofficial certification program in the Magento ecosystem – Magento Certified Customer and Magento Certified Customer Plus!
