33 years, based in Stockholm

André started with iOS development in 2011 and has since held consulting assignments with the two major media groups based in Stockholm.

What do you do in your role?

I develop applications for Apple’s platform, primarily for iOS. I also help with the work of developing underlying systems as well as designing the user experience through, for example, design workshops.

What got you started at Quickbit?

I think it is an exciting industry that is really in the starting blocks. I was attracted by the opportunity to be involved and build something from the ground up in a new industry. Quickbit really gives you the opportunity to participate and influence. In addition, there is a lovely bunch of people working here.

Any hobbies…?

Exercise. Mostly group training at SATS. I also try to run a couple of races during the year. In addition to this, I am interested in food and drinks, gaming and outdoor life.

Tell us something about you that few know.

I run half a mile in 19 min. I am from Norrland and so my first app was a parking app for a parking company in Umeå, an app I built during my studies.
