Work history


Full Stack Developer

Demando | August 2021 - Present

  • Working as a Full Stack Developer on a web recruiting platform built using React.js and Typescript for the frontend, and Node.js, Typescript, GraphQL, and PostgresQL for the backend. Getting familiar with GCP (Google Cloud Platform.) and having the oppurtunity to influence a lot on design and architecture.

Web developer

Dooer | August 2019 - June 2021

  • Lead frontend development architecture and decision making in an R&D team in fall of 2020. Some of the things I introduced include an organized design system and a new state management tool. This helped peers be more productive and less unsure about what technologies to use.
  • Developed a new way for potential customers to get a quote directly on our public website. I did this in close collaboration with a senior software engineer. This increased overall sales by about 15%.

Full Stack Developer

Wopify | January 2018 - July 2019

  • Re-designed the business-facing recruiting application in close contact with stakeholders such as the CEO, CTO, and co-founder.
  • Architected and constructed a fully functional web application in React.js from the design specification we initially developed, in collaboration with a senior backend engineer.

Skills


I have worked a long time with web development. Starting with JavaScript HTML and CSS and learning the communication between server and client, and nowadays specializing in frameworks and tools like React, TypeScript, GraphQL, design-systems, and state management libraries. I have knowledge of a large scale of web development tools and services, but can't list them all here, so feel free to ask me.

Projects


Accessible notes application

Back in 2020, I embarked on a journey to solve my personal note-taking needs. I decided to build a fully keyboard-accessible notes application.

Interface diffing application

To decrease the chance of shipping our site at Dooer with visual regressions I constructed a tool to inspect changes across several different environments.

Sthlm.js meetup talk

Back in May 2020 I did my first ever public talk and spoke at the coding meetup group Sthlm.js about how I'm building my own visual regression testing tool.

Coffee and Code meetup

A few years ago I started a coding meetup in my home city of Västerås. I'd been on many in Stockholm but never found any here, so I started one myself.

Nordic.js/design volunteer

Back in the fall of 2018 I, together with many others, helped organize the design and development conference of Nordic.design and Nordic.js in Stockholm.
