Joakim Verona

I have a master of science in computer engineering degree from Linköping Institute of Technology.

My focus since 2004 is working with technical development for agile processes, Continuous Deployment and Devops, and systems development, large scale deployments, for example large search engines and Machine learning toolchains.

I enjoy roles requiring broad experience of complex multi-layered systems, such as web systems, multi-media systems and mixed software - hardware systems.

I am able to help organizations efficiently solve complex system development challenges. The basis for this ability comes from a thorough understanding of real-world implementation issues combined with a thorough understanding of business issues.

I have broad experience of writing software such as low-level assembly mode hardware drivers, object-oriented systems in C++ or Java, presentation layers in XSLT, or writing automated test-suites for software testing.

My business experience from large swedish organizations such as Ericsson gives me experience work on business development tasks.

My approach to problem solving, trying to achieve a broad understanding of the organizations situation, have enabled me to succeed with assisting organizations in roles as system developer, technical writer, solution architect, DevOps engineer and mentor.

I've worked with a wide range of assignments and organizations, for instance bank and finance (SEB, Investor, Handelsbanken), Telecom (Ericsson, EHPT, Telia, nWise), industrial (Sandvik), the press (DN, Aftonbladet), the unions (Svenska Livsmedelsarbetarförbundet), Gaming(Unibet, Ongame), Government(Arbetsförmedlingen) and many more.
