Profile

I have been working with web technologies for over 5 years now. During this time I've taken part in various different projects from real-time web applications to WebGL and data visualization. I have a deep understanding of current web technology ecosystem and modern web development stacks, especially with MERN (MongoDB, Express, React/Redux, Node).

Experience

Gnonce - Co-Founder

Aug 2018 - Present

I started my entrepreneurial career at Gnonce while I was still finishing up my studies in the University of Jyväskylä. Gnonce is a software consulting company and startup incubator founded by three IT students working on the same academic research group. After my BSc I started to work at Gnonce full time, providing my technical skills for startup joint ventures and subcontracting clients cross-industry.

Some of my most important clients include well known publicly listed companies in the banking and the construction industry.

Things we are very passionate about: modern web applications, software architecture, rapid prototyping, agile methods, software startups

Worked as a lead frontend developer for a web application made to revolutionize the real estate investing.

I also helped team members to grasp the SSR paradigm.
