Can good design save the world? When it comes to online registration and business management software, it might not save the world, but it will save you time, headaches, money, and so much more. We work hard to create an exceptional user experience. That's why we often get the comment that compared to other platforms in the industy, Amilia's look is professional, visually appealing, and easy to use. Virginia is our exceptional user experience designer. With her creative mind, she helps our developpers to create high quality web designs and visual concepts to communicate ideas. If you are an Amilia client, you already know that she is a great user experience designer, but get to know her better with these 10 questions:

Explain your job at Amilia 

I’m the user experience designer and the latest addition to the Product Team! I work closely with the development teams to build exceptional product solutions and to continuously innovate our platform to be a leader in Canadian SaaS technology.

If you were an animal, which one would you be?

A bison. I googled “what animal are you” and took the first test I saw. The results neither surprise nor disappoint me.

Choose: cat or dog ?

Dogs. Cats have no appreciation for anything you do.

What is the app you use the most?

Shazam. I don’t use it every day, but it’ll change your life the moment you hear a song you like, but don’t know the name of. Plus, you can pair it with your Spotify account and have all your tracks in one playlist.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Amilia?

The people and culture. My colleagues are incredible to work with, no work goes unnoticed, support is always available should you need it, and there’s a great deal of room for professional growth. Amilia offers a positive and encouraging workplace, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Amilian family.

What is your dream travel destination?

It changes every so often, so I’ll share a bucket list item with you instead: I would love to get to Tomorrowland. It’s a huge EDM festival held in Belgium every year with sounds and sights that are out of this world. The day I can afford to keep both kidneys AND buy the festival pass will be a glorious one.

Three words that define you:

Enthusiastic, adventurer, outspoken.

Nutella or peanut butter?

Peanut butter 100%. If I wanted a jar of spreadable chocolate, I’d melt a few candy bars in the microwave and dump it on my toast. Would you do that? Probably not because that’s disgusting. Just like Nutella. You freaks…

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I’m a child at heart, so Cotton Candy would take the cake, but none of that fluorescent, marbled, rainbow crap though. The cotton candy I’m talking about is Baby Blue with chunks of hot pink gum in it. You know the kind.

Do you enjoy the Montreal winters?

YES! I’m from Vancouver Island where the average yearly temperature hovers between 5 and 15 degrees, so having a white Christmas is an absolute dream. Plus, it’s not wet here. I’ll take on the Siberian temperatures over having to wear gumboots 10 months out of the year any day.
