Major previous employments
Between 2010 and 2011 I worked as a part time software developer at University Of Eastern Finland. It was a Java
library project that dealt with natural language processing.
In 2011 I received a summer job in YAP Solutions. The employer was content with my work and they offered me a job
as a junior software designer, which was changed to software designer a year later. I worked in various projects
often using C# with Asp.Net Web Forms or Asp.Net Mvc. A major part of my work was implementing business logic in
a desktop application for unemployment funds of Finland. I spent in the company until April of 2018.
Some major projects
Here are some big projects I have been working in. Some have also been personally interesting for me.
A web portal for citizens' health care. I have taken part as a full stack developer in a
team that is developing a web-based health care application. The frontend is implemented in Angular and the
backend is Asp.Net Core. The application is deployed in Azure. Many-sided project in which I have learned
Angular, TypeScript, Azure cloud, Azure DevOps. My maybe most visible contribution has been implementing
displaying customer-related information as pdf.
Quotation engineers' web application. Again worked as a full stack developer. VueJS was the
frontend framework, and Asp.Net Core was the backend, deployed to Azure. In this project I learnt a lot of
cooperation with clients and good coding. Code reviews were useful as the team contained some really good
developers. Also was my first proper scrum project, teaching me principles of scrum.
Web forms for several unemployment funds. I developed several membership etc. forms for
Finnish unemployment fund. Technologies used were Asp.Net Web Forms and Mvc. Also CA Plex was used, and DB2
Electronic invoicing conversion. A system implemented in BizTalk, using its mapper
functionality with help of XSLT language to convert electronic invoices from different formats to another
(e.g. Finvoice to TEAPPSXML).
Unemployment funds' business application. A big desktop application developed in CA Plex
rapid application development tool. I was part of a team that worked with unemployment fund specialists and
implemented business rules according to their instructions. Business logic side was challenging, and the
technology used was also not well known and these projects involved a lot of learning both of business logic
and technical details.
Skills, hobbies, personality etc.

hobby and I have made quite many drawings and paintings. I hope to improve in the skill and bring joy to my
neighbours with it.
