Desirée Lochner

Project Manager: a lot of keeping projects under control

...a little bit of sales, a little bit of testing, a lot of talking and communicating

Tools Desi Lochner can’t live without:

  • Jira
  • roller coasters
  • Jira on roller coasters

Desirée is very, very focused. Her superpower is that while being deep in her work all day, headphones on, at the same, she time knows everything that’s going on in the office. Our clients and teams are grateful for her grasp of complexity. Her perfect organization and control of her projects keeps us on our toes; her winning smile shows she’s got our back! How to win points with Desirée: ask about her family, take her on a roller coaster, compliment her on her “amazing humility” ;-)

Desi and TYPO3

TYPO3 suits me because it is highly structured and yet very flexible and extensible. If clients request a feature, we can pretty much always deliver it.
It’s fun to work with as an editor if the site is built well and the editor experience is actually something that we focus on a lot at b13.

Desi on working at b13

What I love about b13 is that it is fun to work here and I’m proud of the high quality we deliver. There is a real family culture; the people always come first. We’re not locked into one thing; we have room to grow and try new things.
