Robin Larsson

Developer with over 8 years of professional experience

Web development is to me interesting from solution discussions to finished project. I feel confident as a technical project leader, frontend developer, backend developer and have interests in the fields usability and interaction design. The interest in web development began in 2002 with making a web page for a school project and other interests. Since then it was easy to decide what the future career would be. That dedication was followed and lead to study of the Web and Multimedia program at Karlstad University in Sweden.

The strongest sides as a person are energetic, sustained, studious and independent. To give up is not an option and there is always a strong focus on the current tasks. The strongest technical skills are PHP and JavaScript in a Linux based development environment.

I moved to Gothenburg in January 2017 to enjoy new opportunities and challenges. The current occupation is as PHP Developer with a focus on the product Aiai in both frontend and backend development at Kaustik.
