The software projects I am looking for
I am a Swedish software engineer, looking for software projects on freelance basis, ideally projects where I can telecommute.
Ideally website/app startups with agile development where there is much room for individual thinking (i.e. not just being a code monkey).
My education and experience as a software engineer
I have many years of object oriented software development experience, the latest years I have been
I have a Master of Science in Computing Science (Sweden, 1999), my master thesis was on the topic of Design Patterns (which was all the rage back then).
I am also a member of Mensa, which I am not active in, but perhaps it gives you an idea what I am like
E.g. I prefer sitting home coding on interesting projects rather than being at cocktail parties :)
Software projects I have been working on
Over the years I have been involved in many projects (I have been living abroad since 1999), these are some examples what I have been working on:
- search engine and portal for large news agency [Java, Spring, Hibernate, Jibx]
- object oriented architecture and framework for large website [Php]
- application framework for authorization workflows [J2EE, jBoss, jBPM]
- mobile web service for handling of large amounts of sms [Java, Hibernate]
- creation of programming language with XML syntax [Java, XML]
Personal software development projects
I have had many different kinds of personal projects; Google+ hangouts directory (featured on Techcrunch, Mashable etc, peaked with over 70,000 unique visitors per day without downtime), search engines, offline browsers, automatic link directories, etc, etc
(have developed internet projects since 1994)
For my personal development I use a Macbookpro, running Macosx using Git as repository, Eclipse/Netbeans/Emacs as IDE (depending on language), using nginx, php-fpm, memcache and postgres,
usually spending most of my time in the terminal window. For my own server I use a vps where I install whatever I fancy to use.
Soft skills and programming skills
Something that have made me differ much from other developers has been that I am creative in product development (e.g. thinking up new features/solutions)
and attentive to details (e.g. pointing out weak points in process flows/specifications). Some keywords:
Self starter, problem solver, goal oriented, fast learner, dedicated, creative
Fluent in Swedish, English, German
Extensive IT knowledge, +15 years internet development experience, +15 years software development experience
I have been involved and worked with many different languages, toolsets etc. I've tried to list the skills here in the order of my strength in them for each section.
Git, CVS, Subversion/SVN
Postgres, MySql, Oracle
and some other keywords to give you an idea of my skills:
UML, Test Driven Development, Agile development, Scrum, Object oriented development,
Eclipse, Ant, Junit, Hibernate, XML, XSLT, SQL, memcache, facebook api/opengraph, twitter api, css, shell scripts, nginx, apache
and loads of other things.
My github profile is not that thrilling, I have been thinking about looking through my past projects to see if I can put
some of them online, but not got around to it.
I created a
blog which I rarely posted to, but its gone now since posterous has closed down.
