What I do

On the job I am able to fullfill the following roles.



I have been working on both large and small projects within different environments where middleware is used to connect heterogeneous API's, services and legacy systems. I have experience in designing, building and implementing different services in ESB's. I love fulfilling the role off API developer, working in a DevOps setting.



In the role of solution architect I've gained a lot of experience in delivering designs to help customers kickstart their middleware and cloud projects. I am able to translate customers requirements to solutions that work in production.
