Management

Kimmo Rautanen Director

What I do at MediaCity? As Director, my task is to look forward, make sure we´re in tune with the times and our surroundings, and that we have the means to do what we aim to do.
I'm really good at Putting together the big picture – directions, processes, strategies, plans, budgets and such – and then altering it when new pieces come along. Words and numbers are my friends.
And when i'm not working I´m enjoying life from an armchair - good things such as books, music, arts, wine – and collecting things.

Susanne Hägglund - UX Researcher

On maternity leave
My role is the one of the air control tower at the content testing unit of MC. I also devote a nice chunk of my time to research within the field of Human-Computer Interaction and User Experience.
I'm really good at Unravelling connections. I’m a marvel at prying into people’s day-to-day experiences; uncovering needs, desires and spotting consequences of every little thing they do.
And when i'm not working I run a permacultural garden, knit and dream of playing the piano at Carnegie Hall.
