Need professional software development?
Everyone needs a bit of extra help with their projects occasionally.
- Too much to do right now? Need an extra set of hands on your team?
- Hiring and training in new areas takes time. Does your team lack a certain skillset today?
- Struggling with your software development project? Need some independent, objective advice?
- Do you need a quick prototype built ASAP, with as little fuss as possible?
I can help you
I'm an independent software developer and consultant with over fifteen years experience. Clients consistently refer to me as competent, versatile, reliable and extremely easy to work with.
“...delivered more than we expected in less time than estimated… his sound methods and great people skills made a potentially risky development process smooth and rapid.”— Jo Ring Giske, Enterprise Architect at Mattilsynet
- Android development
- System architecture
Broad, solid experience in:
- Web development
- Backend/server development
- Mentoring and teaching
Finally, I also have basic skills in project management, UI/UX design work, marketing and product development. While I can do basic work in these fields myself, what you really want is to have me, as a software developer, collaborate with specialists in any of these disciplines: then we'll both truly shine.
“Thomas is a man of many talents, and a pleasure to work with. His practical professionalism has helped get difficult projects back on track, and both clients and colleagues have appreciated his focus on options and tradeoffs when prioritizing.”— Marius Mårnes Mathisen, Chief Strategy Officer at Shortcut AS
A high-profile app that the Norwegian State Railways (NSB) provides to its customers. For users with recent train tickets, the app provides free audio books, podcasts, music and more.
As part of the Shortcut team building this, I ironed out the system architecture of the project and developed the initial Android version of the app.
Though faced with a challenging deadline, the project shipped on-time, and is used daily by thousands of commuters.
“[Thomas] is smart, very dedicated, structured and quality conscious. I have been blessed to have him on several of my projects, where he always helped me stay one step ahead and predict future risks. […] He possesses excellent communications skills and is very patient and pleasant to work with. On top of that he is very considerate, kind and honest. I give Thomas my very best recommendations, even though I would like to keep him to myself.” — Ina Tegnander, Project Manager at Shortcut AS
NAF Bilen Min
This app is part of a major effort on part of the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF) to create new, rich digital services for their customers.
As part of the Shortcut team building this, I worked on system architecture, some Android development, web frontend, backend/integration development, and mentoring of junior project members.
The project shipped on time, on budget and had multiple tens of thousands of users as of Q3 2015.
“Thomas was a great asset to the team with his calm, friendly and professional manner combined with his broad knowledge and expertise. One of the things I liked best about working with Thomas was his pedagogical ways of explaining complex technical problems. I could always count on Thomas getting the job done and I warmly recommend him.” — Jonas Dalsenius, Project Manager at the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF)
