Frontend web developer with design, UX and leadership skills.
Has been working with frontend professionally since 2007 and have had it as a hobby since 1997.
Product and service oriented problem solver who does what's needed to create the best experience for both the customers and his coworkers.
My primary tasks were to create dynamic banners and campaign sites, often using programmatic advertising though Google DoubleClick.
I would recieve final designs for one banner format that I would adapt to more formats, and then build them using responsive design and content from various APIs.
As a senior frontend developer I've also advised on best practices and workflow improvements.
Brands that I've worked with include Huawei, Procter & Gamble, Kia, Fortum, Betsson and Nordicbet.
I was responsible for leading the frontend work and mentoring the junior developers.
I'm most proud of my work with company culture and mentoring people to think beyond their primary roles.
I worked in the website team (king.com and royalgames.com) and later in the internal tools team.
In the website team I was one of two people who lead the frontend work. I focused specifically on modernizing the CSS architechture using Object Oriented CSS principles and educating my coworkers in component oriented design patterns.
In the internal tools team I built a frontend components library using BackboneJS, Twitter Bootstrap and LessCSS that was used in most of the tools, and I did the design and user experience work.
Some of the internal tools that I was part of building was for:
I was part of a team doing responsive design research at the time when the concept of responsive design was first popularized and there were still major technical limitations.
The company had a long background of working with the pre-smartphone mobile web and our team's mission was to research how we could adapt our platform to handle both the modern smartphones and the longtail pre-smartphone devices.
I was part of several Scrum teams who developed and maintained several large online guides and review sites, mainly focusing on SEO and conversion.
This was my first job as a frontend developer but I was already quite proficient when I started as I had 10 years of hobby experience.
I'm a self-educated developer and designer.
I wasn't a big fan of how the Swedish school worked—most teachers could not or would not explain why we needed to learn the things they taught us—so after high school I focused on learning frontend web development and design on my own instead of pursuing any further institutionalized schooling.
