About Me

I'm a developer that thrives by creating digital products. Today, I've been doing development for over 15 years and I'm still in love with it. I have a master's in Computer Science and am currently working as a technical lead at Lendo, where I'm a part of leading our expansion into the world.

Work Experience

2019-05-01 to Present

Technical lead at Lendo

As a technical lead at Lendo, the main focus has been to, together with my team, develop and launch Lendo into new markets. This, while simultaneously building a platform that both existing and future markets can use for rapid development, while still being configurable for market needs. My purpose has been to guide my team toward these goals, and at the end of 2020, we successfully launched Lendo into a new market, Spain. Since then, we have continued to make it even better, while also making great progress in the development of more markets.

Developer at Lendo

My time as a developer at Lendo was focused on improving the newly launched platform. This included both developing new features and making sure that the existing features could be reused for new markets in the upcoming expansion.

IT consultant at Netlight

Netlight is an IT consultant firm located in multiple european countries. I'm currently working at the Stockholm office where I've been on several assignments listed below.

Backend developer at Lendo

This assignment involved assisting Lendo with their move from a PHP monolith to a microservice architecture. The first period involved both creating a new microservice and restructuring of Lendo's template for Node.js services. Thereafter, the majority of the development was performed in Go with both the recreation of new microservices and refactoring of old ones. A major part of the assignment was to help out with the development of Lendo's new business loan product. I became the unofficial technical lead within the sub-team developing this new product and together with the rest of the team, we successfully launched it in 2018. It is today an essential part of Lendo's offering.

Web developer at Improove

The assignment at Improove involved both front- and backend development. This included improvements of existing webshops, but also the implementation of a redesign (shop.picadeli.se), and the creation and launching of a new webshop (savannahs.com). The backend of the webshops was powered by Magento and Demandware.

System administrator at Linköping University

When working as a system administrator at Linköping University, I and one other student, was in charge of two computer labs with approximately 100 computers. The work involved configuration and maintenance of these computers. All computers were running Windows that was managed via an Active Directory server. We did also maintain a Linux server with web and email services.

Developer at OnServer360

This job was over the summer of 2012 where I created a platform for tracking customers through webshops and other websites. The platform also made it possible for the user to specify rules that sent emails to the customers based on configurable criteria.

2010-01-01 to 2010-06-01

Teacher at KomTek

I created and taught a programming course for children with another person at KomTek (municipal technical school). The course was organized so that the children received a basic understanding of programming while still having fun in the process. It was fun and instructive to see the children's expression of epiphany when they figured out new things. The same epiphany I experienced when I started programming.
