About me

Since december 2013 I’ve been working as a frontend developer at Kambi Sports Solutions where we develop a sports betting client used by companies like Unibet, 888, Paf etc. It is a fun and challenging job working with a big scale responsive frontend application used for multiple clients with custom skins in several different languages. This requires modular and high quality code that is easy to maintain, understand and extend.

Before I started my job at Kambi I worked as a frontend developer at Fantasy Interactive. At Fi I worked with award winning projects for companies like Google, Sony, PfizerBET, Dulux, Verizon, Sports Illustrated etc. The projects at Fi was always design oriented and as all frontend developers at Fi I always fought to bring the designs to life by using bleeding edge techniques, advanced UX and creative solutions. Many of the sites where event-driven SPI solutions and to maximize the availability and usability we made most of the sites responsive.

In addition to the client projects I’ve been involved in at Fi’s, I’ve also been involved in the development of Fi’s new blog http://blog.fi.com/ and many of their case studies. I have also had the opportunity to learn lots of new techniques and got to experiment with new technologies such as WebGL and canvas (http://blog.fi.com/webgl-sparkling-logo/ and http://codepen.io/fi-jon-walstedt/full/jndhI).

Personally I think that coding is incredibly rewarding and creative and I am driven by the challenge of problem solving which I find coding to be.

Before my time at Fantasy Interactive I worked briefly as a developer on Noc webbyrå. There I worked daily with technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, JSON, jQuery, PHP, MySql, Regexp, responsive design etc. A creative and fun process where we worked with clients such as Volkswagen, Sectra, Schnoor and others.

Before that I worked as a developer and educator at the production agency Ambient media. The job involved a lot of technical and pedagogical challenges as the work included both production and teaching. As a developer at Ambient media the work was very diverse with a focus on educational solutions, installations, demo applications and games for children. Among our regular customers were Com Hem, 1177 and Unionen.

As part of the work at Ambient media, I’ve taught as a consultant at Södertörn University. I have been responsible for several courses at the college such as ”Publicering via Internet” (level A 7.5hp), ”Interaktiva Medier” (level A 7.5hp), ”Mobila tjänster och gränssnitt” (C-level 7.5hp), ”Scriptprogrammering och avancerad Flash” (level B 7.5hp) but I have also guest lectured and tutored in several other courses including eg ”Dynamiska webbplatser” (level B 7.5hp).

In addition to teaching at Södertörn University, I organized business courses at Batteri, 1177 and Trafikverket.

Before my time at Ambient media I freelanced as a web developer in parallel with my studies to become a teacher.
