Joakim Olander


Frontend Web developer in Stockholm, Sweden

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

Since I started to work as a web developer in 2000. I have done 9 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.

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

Well, HTML isn't the funniest and most challenging to work with, but I can feel very proud of a well structured markup as well. Doing some Express, Sinatra or Rails doesn't really matter, but I have to admit that the JavaScript track is closest to my heart.

At my work Mynewsdesk where we build a large scale Rails/JavaScript application and also trying out new inovation ideas. I work as Team Lead and Developer for our inovation project Poptype where we play with Ruby On Rails, React, CoffeeScript/JavaScript, all kind of Front end stuff, SEO and product development that I like very much.
