JAYWAY WAS A PROMISE
My New Year’s resolution back in 2013 was to start working for a company that I haven’t actually founded. At the time I had been a serial entrepreneur for thirteen years with various success, and had just stopped commuting to Stockholm and elsewhere to start up a new digital agency in Malmö. The environmental change did me good and made me realize it was time for me to change path. At that time, after doing some research, there was really only one company in the Øresund region that I would consider working together with; Jayway.
AT JAYWAY WE SET OUR OWN AGENDA
One of the reasons why I’m particularly interested in Jayway is that it’s employee-owned. I know from experience how important it is to be able to set your own agenda from the ground up and not the other way around. There are very few companies where you get so many opportunities to create a niche for yourself. I get an outlet for my creativity with Jayway’s focus on Design Thinking, which gives me great opportunities to further develop my skills and work with what I truly love, in a field where I can contribute the most.
KNOWLEDGE IS FOR SHARING
I’ve always had a drive for sharing knowledge, which Jayway and Øredev is quite known for. When I was younger I had plans to become a teacher and it sooner led me into the digital world of education where I held lectures in programming and built e-learning platforms to various clients.
I'LL DIVE INTO ANYTHING
I’d say I’m a doer. I’ve renovated our house mainly by myself and that’s the kind of process I like: first collect the facts and then do all the handyman tasks myself, make mistakes, adjust and adapt. Test and learn.
I met my wife about twenty years ago, and we used to love to go backpacking for months. After our son was born we switched to a bit more quiet family life. Instead of skydiving, and scuba diving in some faraway ocean I’m now more into pool diving at child-friendly hotels. Well, everything isn’t that quiet actually as my latest New Year’s resolution was to take up on my lead singing again and finally tame my Les Paul.
