Experience

Software developer / Founders
2015 - Present

Working in a very small team in purely js (both front and back), creating prototypes, proof of concepts and what will eventually ammount to real projects.

Software developer / Zmags
2013 - 2015

Working with frontend and design in a team of about 9 developers and 2 designers on a web app. I do work ranging from maturing stories (pre development), to mocking up ideas for rapid testing, to implementing solutions in JavaScript. The frontend consists of a Backbonejs framework (that means object oriented programming), with LESS css, gruntjs, git, and npm included in the setup.

UX Designer & developer / Place2Book
2009 - 2013

My role has been everything design, UX, and frontend, plus the rare backend fix when necessary. The backend is built in Ruby on Rails, and when I joined I introduced Sass, jQuery, and later CoffeeScript and Bootstrap.

Co-founder / Planely
2010 - 2012

Finding backenders to accompany me in building a web app. The backend was first written in PHP (Zend framework) at first, but later we changed to Haskell and Yesod framework for some functional fun. I did everything design (both online and offline), presentations, team building and recruiting, as well as the entire frontend.

Teaching 2006 - 2012

I have done various small teaching jobs, both in secondary school (usually 8-10th grade) teaching one of my subjects; and while studying at ITU I have been TA in a Web Design course a few semesters giving lectures on jQuery and Javascript.

Freelancer 2002 - 2013

For the past ten years or so I have been taking in various small frontend and design projects on a freelance basis. The jobs have been extremely varied, ranging from simple static html pages to full fledged UX research and frontend implementation on existing backends.

CSS Spec work / whatwg
2006

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.
