PROFILE

I offer programming of small and larger systems including network and preferably in connection with real-time requirements. As preparation I do tests on focus groups to reveal potential needs before the agile development continues in the next iteration.
   Although being a backend guy, I do have a weakness for UI design due to previous teaching in psychology engineering. Also, I slip signal processing into the programming whenever possible.
   A considerable amount of thoroughness and excitement characterizes my work. I get many new ideas which call for further reading and the ability to learn new disciplines—both in terms of hardware and software.
   I am very fond of teamwork where requests from colleagues flow in various directions. It is simply a cosy and at the same time gripping process.
