Strong technical understanding, check. Business mindset, check. Personal interest and skills in design, check.
For the past ten years, after graduating as MSc in Economics, Thomas has worked as a front-end developer and designer for both B2B and B2C clients in some of the major players in the Finnish tech scene: Bilot, Smilehouse and Tieto. Since 2013 he has specialized in ecommerce, building the beautiful store fronts, but also creating conversion optimised user experiences.
“I had been following Columbia Road for a while and it seemed like an interesting fast-growing company. I also felt like it was time for me to widen my scope and do ecommerce more holistically and develop new skills as a consultant. I must say that one of the things that tipped the scales for Columbia Road was the extremely talented and visionary people I get to now work with”, says Thomas with a smile on his face.
“Thomas’ substance knowledge in ecommerce development is unbeatable. He’s an experienced ecommerce consultant in both front end development and UX design in this particular domain, which means that he knows all the kinks and tricks there is to know”, says Sampo Hämäläinen, Managing Partner.
On his free time Thomas plays drums in a band called Dark Sarah - they are currently touring, check them out! ;) He’s into snowboarding in the winter and water board sports in the summer. In addition, Thomas keenly recommends everyone to try acrobatics, "it’s great all-around training for mind & body," he says.
