Mads Møller

Position: Senior R&D engineer at Novo Nordisk
Technical University of Denmark (DTU) - BEng Information Technology

After working as system programmer (datamatician) for a couple of years Mads wanted a change of air and went traveling by sailboat for 3 years. At the end of the journey, he knew that he wanted to do work with something slightly different than before. Mads went to DTU and found a passion for programmable HW and autonomous robotics. After finishing his bachelor’s degree, he got a job at Novo Nordisk working with FPGAs and ASICs – a perfect fit to his newfound interest. But change is constant and after a few years, he found himself working with all sorts of topics ranging from anthropologist to prototype manufacturer. Mads has now been at Novo Nordisk Device R&D for more than 10 years which was way more than he ever expected to be at one company, but the ever-changing tasks have made it interesting all the while.

Motivation

Mads does not see himself as leader or an example to follow. He is a true jack-of-all-trades and often finds he does not have the same insight into a topic as his specialist colleagues, but he does think he has gained experience that he can pass on to students on how to navigate such waters and thrive in them.
