Andreas Truchs
UX-design intern

I am 28 years old, Representing Kristiansand and the beautiful southern parts of Norway. For the past few years I have been studying “design, use and interaction" (interaction/UX design) at UiO. When I am not studying (which of course is always…), I tend to either run or climb as much as possible.

As an intern at Røst I am supposed to be a UX-designer and developer. Which might give me some freedom of choice when it comes to what part I want to spend most of my time focusing on. I am looking forward to test as much of what I have been taught during my education. And of course getting to know both the Røst-team and coffee roasting better.

Hopefully I will learn a whole lot about the processes around roasting coffee, especially with Røst and how this might change some of the tasks done with other roasters. As well as giving Røst as much data on how to best support their potential users in the future.

Maybe there will be some coffee here as well?

Elise Solberg Hjermann
Sales and strategy intern

I have a bachelor degree in Economics and Business Administration from the Norwegian Business School. I have just finished the first year of my master´s degree in Finance and Strategic Management at Copenhagen Business School, and is this summer working as intern at RØST Coffee. This internship is a great opportunity to gain experience related to my studies and interests.

I am working as Sales and Strategy intern and my focus is to understand the business and the coffee market.  I have to identify the needs and trends in the market, and how RØST should position in order to meet those needs. Together with Elsa, I will work on how to strengthen the company´s position in the market. 

I look forward to use what I have learned during my studies to understand the coffee industry and how to succeed in it. I look forward to contact potential customers and distributors and discuss the business. Furthermore, this internship gives me a unique opportunity to learn and develop my professional and personal skills.

Elsa Holten
Marketing and communication intern

I have just finished my bachelor's degree in Economics and Business Administration at NHH, and I am very much looking forward to working in Røst this summer. I will take a major in marketing and brand management on my master, and this is therefore an unique opportunity to gain experience in this area before I specialize. 

In Røst I have already arranged and taken pictures of the Røst, made a new website, invented and started this blog, and worked with a new design-profile on Instagram. Through the rest of the summer I will among other tasks be working with this blog, our SoMe-channels and focusing on making Røst visible and well known in the coffee industry. 

The internship in Røst is not only a great opportunity to gain experience related to what I am studying, but I also find the coffee market very interesting and the internship combines some of my main interests – design, marketing and communication.
