Tobias is one of a few developers who really add a lot of value for a company. This due to his strong technical skills combined with a very strong business focus too. To us he has been immensely valuable and appreciated.

I worked together with Tobias on an online poker platform. Tobias was the team leader, always pushing the team to the next level agility-wise and making sure the team was always on track and focusing on the most important issues for the stake-holders. On a more technical level, Tobias knows everything you'll ever need to know about TDD, OO design and agile methodologies and is an excellent software developer. Highly recommended!

Working with Tobias to create Reco.se was a project that took us from zero to hundreds of thousands of users and response times from several minutes to a few hundred milliseconds. Tobias made the team great with his his advanced technical skills and never-ending search for ways to optimize our efforts to create a better system. To my mind Tobias is simply one of the best software developers I have seen (and had the pleasure to work with!). I would happily work with Tobias again.
- Fredrik Espinoza, CTO, Wiky Ventures AB
Tobias entered the team early, eager to change the mindset of traditional theories and concepts. Tobias is passionate about creating business value and has developed himself and the rest of the team to always choose the most valuable solution for a problem. He puts a lot of pride into his work as a "craftsman" but remains sensitive to input. Honestly, it's been a true joy to work with Tobias and I would love to work with him again.
