Software developer with UX education
and more than 15 years of experience.
Tech I like
I am less and less focused on frameworks and languages. Most can be picked up within a day. Some within a week.
Full Stack developer /
2020 - present
Just started. Currently working on the frontend for publishers, and on getting up to speed with new languages and tech stacks.
Expert Software developer /
2017 - 2020
Working on the frontend at Nordea where I have built a set of ui components which will be used in most (all?) future web projects. I also regularly do workshops with other frontend developers, and have done a bit of mentoring as well. Latest project is laying the foundation for migrating more than 250K lines of AngularJS code to Angular.
Software developer /
2015 - 2017
Working in a very small team in purely js (both front and back), creating prototypes, proof of concepts and what would eventually ammount to real projects.
Software developer /

UX Designer & developer /
2009 - 2013
My role was everything design, UX, and frontend, plus the rare backend fix when necessary. The backend was built in Ruby on Rails, and when I joined I introduced Sass, jQuery, and later CoffeeScript and Bootstrap.
2010 - 2012
Finding backenders to accompany me in building a web app. The backend was first written in PHP (Zend framework), but later we changed to Haskell and Yesod framework. I did everything design (both online and offline), presentations, team building and recruiting, as well as the entire frontend.
Teaching 2006 - 2012
Freelancer 2002 - 2013
For a period of ten years or so I was taking in a lot of various small frontend and design projects on a freelance basis. The jobs was varied, ranging from simple static html pages to full fledged UX research and frontend implementation on existing backends.
CSS Spec work /
I took at year off studies to work with WHATWG on the spec for what became html5 and css3. The work I did consisted mostly of documenting css rendering errors in browsers. During this time I also worked on a friend’s startup that eventually failed.
