David Lundquist

Software engineer


Summary Ever since I can remember technology has been an important part of my life, this has taken me from founding my own small technology company back in Sweden to working on projects all over the world. This same focus on technology also allows me to have a broad understanding of how technology is evolving and it has given me the ability to widen my knowledge which is now spread across several different kinds of technological areas. References will be provided upon request. Specialities I am an experienced developer within the mobile sphere having built both back office software as well as fully fledged content delivery and billing solutions for some of the biggest carriers in the world. Ive had several titles in top lists in the apple appstore and on carriers across the world. While mobile has been my main focus the last couple of years my base lies in web where I have developed solutions to allow companies of all sizes to have a presence on the web. I’ve built systems and websites for everything from small local companies to big global companies. For the last couple of years my focus on web has been towards Ruby on rails using a BDD philosophy having finished both big and small sized projects by successfully leveraging cucumber acceptance tests and story writing as well as unit tests based around rspec. While being a partner in different businesses I have also gathered skills in business planning and management.

Vuk M.


Serbia - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 8

11 years of developer experience. If something isn't working, tell me why and I'll fix it. I want to earn my money. *** Work I do: • anything WordPress! • website development / security / speed • custom scripts, themes, plugins and applications • vps / dedicated setup, part time *nix admin • fixing errors My design skills are often sufficient (i.e. when modifying an existing WordPress theme), but I suggest you hire a professional designer if a new theme is being built or a logo / banner is needed. *** Please do… DO feel free to go negative about things you don’t like. If you don’t tell me what you think isn’t working, I’ll show you the same thing again and again. DO point out and go into as much detail as possible as to why you feel something is not working. More than anything, your reasoning is critical to solving the problem. DO speak to your goals and priorities for the project. DO tell me why I'm wrong about certain design and development decisions we’ve made. Part of the process is finding those holes. DO limit the amount of people participating in the review cycle to as small as possible - for faster, more succinct feedback. *** Please don't… DON’T mock up designs or alterations to my designs or code in photoshop, word, or any other program. Doing so is counter productive because I then must reverse engineer the whole thing to find out what you were trying to solve. This results in lost time, and budget. DON’T prescribe solutions, because prescriptive feedback also needs to be unpacked, and reverse engineered to get to the real issue. Bad → “Move the twitter button to the left” / Better → “We want more importance placed on the social media sharing tools.” DON’T forget you hired development and design experts and your job is to be the business expert. Best, Vuk
