Hi, my name is Gabriel Roda Eugen Bach and I am an Interaction Designer from Zurich, Switzerland!

I'm currently sipping Batidos in Costa Rica, but from the 1st of March I'm gonna need a job.

AboutAboutAboutAbout

My name is Gabriel Roda Eugen Bach. I was born on December 6th 1993 to a Swiss mother and a Kongolese father. I love to learn, I love to create, I love to experience. I am an Interaction Designer. For me, design can be so much more than just printing a fancy poster or producing a beautiful chair. I look for the reason in things. I look for the relation of things. Through my diverse education during my Interaction Design studies, my exchange semester in the Netherlands, my Internship in a Web Agency and my travels, I have picked up a wide range of skills in design, ideation and development, which I could test in numerous projects in all media. My career has lead me to enter the startup scene where I have worked for the past two years. I took responsibility for the corporate and product design, social media marketing and played a crucial part in our pro- duct‘s front-end development. However, I have decided to move on and want to further deepen my understanding of coding and my skills in design and that‘s why I am looking for an opportunity to learn, not from my own experience but from people who better do what I want to do.

Years of professional experience
After gathering some early front-end experience in my Internship at Feinheit AG I soon found my place as Interaction Designer at Okomo AG, where I would stay for the next two years.

Years of freelance experience
Next to my work for Okomo I am also officially registered as a Freelancer and have worked as such for the past two years.

Bachelor Degree
What are degrees worth in design anyways? What I can tell you is that I enjoyed my studies and learned. A lot! But for those interested the exact title is BA Industrial Design with Focus interaction Design

Internship
Done at Feinheit AG and let showed me that writing a couple of lines of code is a far way from actually being a good programmer.

Spoken Languages
Yeah when I say speak I mean anything from basic convo to kinda second mother tongue. But yeah I speak a couple. Wait.. Does Swiss German count as a Language?

Tattoos
To get it out of the way. Rumor has it, some employers have problems with that. Never actually encountered anyone who did. Do you?

German
native proficiency
I learned this when I was little (1 or 2, don’t remember). Actually it was Swiss German but TV taught me good and I’m quite proud of my ability to hide the fact that I’m Swiss for at least 10 seconds (rough estimate).
English
Near native proficiency
I majored in English in High School and then spent the better part of the decade improving through binge watching tv shows. 5/7 would have prefered a British accent in hindsight. Also I probably have made a lot of typos here which undermines my whole credibility ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
French
very good command
I remember speaking quite well in highschool and actually got my best grade in oral, but who can tell, I haven't spoken French in years days.
Spanish
basic communication
Had an amazing teacher in Colombia and my mother currently lives in Spain. Also I'm in Costa Rica right now, so if I come home to see your offer, that means that my skills suffice to survive.
Japanese
elementary skills
My inner Weeaboo commanded me to take Japanese lessons as a teen and although I damn sure couldn't hold a conversation right now, I guess it would only take me a couple of days to get back in there.
Chinese
elementary skills
No I don't speak Chinese. I just needed something to fill the space. Fun fact, however: I did take 3 years of Mandarin in Highschool, but since I spent the same amount of time learning as I spent actively forgetting (however that happened) that probably doesn't count.
