How were you hired at Danfoss?

To extend myself, funny I had also an agreement with SMA with was our main competitor but decided to stay with Danfoss after seeing young colleagues and some names that were role models at AAU.
15th of march, Denmark full of snow, stayed by couch surfing at some peoples place. Walked to the office and got wet as a good Spaniard. I asked to see the facilities and the labs and got very happy about how friendly the colleagues were. They showed me the inverters, the lab and some functions. I do not work with them anymore but one happens to be my neighbor and the other was my mentor.
