On the Job
I'm a skilled Product Developer with more than 8 years experience with:
- Delivering robust and well-tested solutions
- Estimating, breaking down and prioritising feature requirements
- Maintaining large codebases and API surfaces
- Architecting programs and directing technical decisions
- Bringing the solution home as a team effort
My technical skillset includes:
- Writing composable, testable and reusable front end code
- Designing APIs and data structures
- Writing test scenarios and test implementations of all kinds
- Tracking down and mitigating performance issues
- Formulating technical decisions in long-form writing
I'm often at the forefront of front end development, and have previously pioneered and led the use of technologies and techniques like:
- CSS preprocessors
- Responsive web design
- Statecharts and state machines
- Advanced TypeScript and functional programming
- EcmaScript modules and module bundling
But don't worry! Even though I'm a developer, I don't lack the human touch. I also have experience with people-facing roles such as:
- On-boarding new team members
- Co-hosting customer workshops
- Producing learning materials
- Visiting customers on premise
- Writing release notes
After a couple of years of doing agency work in Denmark, I moved to Oslo, Norway, in 2016 to join Stibo DX (then Escenic) where I've helped build the flagship product CUE from the ground up and into a CMS used by large media groups all over the world. In 2021 I moved back to my hometown Aarhus with my family. Shortly thereafter I joined Cactus Communications. Here I work on the Paperpal team where we help academic authors write better manuscripts faster.
