It is a completely new Business Unit that has been established in 2021, to support the increasing international demand for PatientSky solutions. 

Who are you as a person?

Knowledge and continuous learning is something that motivates you, and you are happy to share your expertise with your colleagues, regardless of whether they are developers, designers or project managers. The PatientSky family consists of a wide range of talented and diverse groups - we see diversity as a strength.

Social & culture

We have a good social culture at our Copenhagen office, so you should not be afraid of playing a match of foosball, drinking a beer/cup of coffee or tea/glass of wine and having a chat on Fridays. We occasionally have social gatherings (if COVID allows) across offices and strive to have bi-monthly social events like going fishing, playing games, going out, hackathons etc. In the VAS Business Unit, we prioritize having a budget for these activities including an educational budget per employee, so that we can facilitate continued learning.
