I'm an educated developer, having worked about 8 of my 12 years in backend-development, whereof 3 with system architecture and design patterns. I feel very confident that I can contribute with the right set of skills that you need for your project, regardless if you need a quite doer or a loud and driven tech lead.
My primary focus is Microsoft technologies; C#.Net MSSQL, Entity Framework. Secondarily, I use PHP5 (object-oriented, preferably CakePHP) and mySQL.
I see myself as a full-stack developer, but with a much heavier focus towards backend development.
I am used to working in a team of developers, as well as working alone. Regardless of how the team composition is, I prefer working with SCRUM and KANAN as project management and planning. This makes the entire project very visible, and you can easily see where you're at from a very early stage.

Anything from technically creating plugins to strategically profiling and communicate with your customers in order to increase up-sales and cross-sales; if you can explain your needs, I can most likely create it! - and if you don't know what you need, I'd be happy to suggest something profitable!
For me, E-Commerce is like a buffet of information waiting to be processed. Looking at customers behaviors, you can relatively easily create very good cross-sales and up-sales, as well as improving customer retention!
This concept is very broad, but please read under the tabs "Marketing" and "Specializations" for more details, or simply get in touch, and I'll be happy to explain with a personalized example.
I have worked with several CMS systems, but only stayed with one of them, and that is Umbraco. The system is open source (free) a great bridge between marketing and IT. Its flexibility, extendibility and administrability makes Umbraco a very appreciated system for many smaller and mid-sized businesses.
Throughout the years, I've developed a few API-bridges and integrations between Umbraco, TeaCommerce (e-commerce plugin in Umbraco) and customers back-office solution.
If you need a complex implementation, I'd be happy to help.
Email is a very important tool for keeping in touch with your existing customers and done correctly, increasing customer loyalty and profitability.
The biggest mistake companies do is to have a bunch of 50k former customers who have given the consent to receive email communication. The second biggest mistake is failing to realize that email is a 1-1 communication, and content can be unique to every customer. Sending relevant and personalized information, offers and images to the users can be VERY profitable! Additionally, relevant and targeted content also increase customer loyalty and decreases the likelihood of unsubscribes and complaints.
Throughout the years, I've been working with some of Scandinavia's largest and most well-known organizations, advising on a strategic level of companies whose member base been 10m+ active subscribers.
I have also developed many bridges to integrate customer information with various external sources in order to automate highly relevant emails, both campaigns (to thousands of people at once), as well as a trigger / action-based emails (order confirmations, forgot password, happy birthday, reminders, we miss you, etc).
We all dislike spam, and I also dislike spammers to the extent that I refuse to work with them (putting it very mildly).
Additionally, I also decline clients whose strategy is buying/selling lists (co-regs, etc), using email as acquisition marketing, even if all these methods are legally ok. Email is made for retention and relevant 1-1 communication, and this is what I'm working with!
A famous Swedish saying, directly translated by myself, is: "You should speak with farmers in farmers way, and with the educated in Latin". It means that one should adjust the message to your audience.
Segmentation is breaking down something large to smaller and more tangible parts and handle each part separately. Some examples of segmentation could be:
In the end, the above is "profile-based marketing", which is the term for using customer data in order to tune the offer to fit the customer. This is one of the most effective marketing methods there is.
Additionally, for testing new strategies, temporary and random segments can be created, to which you communicate in the new way and measure the response rate of the new communication method.
"Help me help you!". If you need anything from continuous maintenance to a hardcore developer available a couple of hours per month? Then this package is ideal for you! By reserving me a few hours per month, I can more easily plan my time, and in return, I offer my whole range of services at a reduced rate!
I have a dedicated server where I offer to place my client’s projects that we create, assuming that the solution does not interfere with the operations of the server.
I do not accept customers who solely wish to be hosted on the server.
