Erik Lundblad

Software Engineer

I'm a highly motivated developer with a passion for creating software using new technologies and about clean code practices.

As a software engineer in small development teams, I'm used to being involved in the entire development process, from requirements analysis to QA, deployment and operations.

My main focus is on JVM languages such as Java, Kotlin and Groovy, and related technologies such as Spring Framework, but I'm also experienced with web design, business logic and data modeling, databases, hosting environments and deployment. I'm a fast learner, have good communication skills and a strong sense of responsibility to deliver high-quality software on time.
