Frontend Developer & UX Designer
Telia · 2019-2022 · Sweden
Web-GIS application. I was involved all the way from proof of concept, to MVP, to iterating on 1.0. I specialized in developing features and map/UI design + programming, as well as user research and UX design. The tool quickly became increasingly appreciated by stakeholders and users, thanks to quick iterations, working together with our end-users, and meeting their business needs. I was also part of the group migrating our outdated GIS app from jQuery to React, and into the latest version of map library OpenLayers.
Henrik Thörn, Product Owner: " I can warmly recommend Marcus His collaboration ability is very high. [...] We stood firm for the high expectations that we had around deliveries and timetable. A clear sign that he takes responsibility and finds paths not only for his specific task but for the whole team's deliveries to be as good as possible. While working with Marcus I learned many things and I have daily use of methods and viewpoints that Marcus showed me when we worked together. "
