Tech Lead / Product Development Coach @ Sveriges Radio, Digitala Publika Produkter
2023 January – Ongoing
In the role as Tech Lead in the Leadership team for Digitial Development i was responsible for creating and managing an architecture fit for modern product development as well as a strategy to implement it together with the product teams. This is a long term plan in a complex environment which meant mentoring and helping the developers and teams to understand the purpose of the goal more than explaining specific details.

As a Product Owner for SR Play through the App and the Webb i worked with two teams to deliver the best possible experience for the users.

Delivery Lead / Agile Coach @ Klarna 
2017 August – 2021 May
As a Delivery Lead at Klarna you are in the middle of everything trying to help Product and Engineering to deliver in the best possible way. Sometimes from a holistic perspective and often deep down into nitty gritty details. The dev-ops teams in Klarna have a clear responsibility but often we have company goals that span across these responsibilities, and then a Delivery Lead is in charge. Agile practices and tools are a main contributor to the success of the delivery and I facilitate and teach around this quite often. When needed i also acted as Product manager or System Architect in shorter assignments.

Main deliveries that i have participated in:
– The Klarna Card
– Monthly Invoice
– Pay in 3 – UK / Pay in 4 -US

On the side I coach and educate around Agile methodologies to teams all around Klarna.
