Joakim Olander


Frontend Web developer in Stockholm, Sweden

I'm a developer with passion for the web and working with people, code, design and user experience in the product development area.

My daily work i try to do some magic at Teamtailor and innovate the HR industry.

Since I started to work as a web developer in 2000. I have done several years of web consulting and corporate websites, built up some quite large CMS like Spirello, done some SEO labbing around the travel industry and built up a custom made CMS for a large online gambling company.

At my previous work Mynewsdesk I joined the company as developer when the size was around 30 people to build a large scale Rails/JavaScript application.

After some years I started to work with different innovation projects where the latest one was as Team Lead and Developer for the Poptype product.

Here I played with Ruby On Rails, Singel Page Application in React with CoffeeScript/JavaScript and all kind of Front end stuff like setting the ground for Style Guide driven development. I was also a big part in the SEO strategy, how to get user through social media/ads and focused the whole team including product owner, designers and developers to craft a great product with a simple and awesome user experience.

If I have to choose, I prefer frontend development with a lot of modular based JavaScript and well structured SCSS but and I feel comfortable in most of the web development areas.
