Niklas Schönberg


Presenting: Niklas


This series of blogs presents you the members of JCO’s cool team. May we present to you our resident coding wizard Niklas.

Tell us about yourself – what do you do at JCO?

I’m a 38-year old single dad from Inkoo. I have lately done mostly Android programming but can also put my hand to Php and Javascript work, or whatever we happen to need at any moment.

What did you do before JCO?

I studied business information technology at Axxell in Tammisaari, and in fact, heard about JCO through the school. I’ve previously done various programming-related jobs and run my own business.

What has been your coolest project at JCO?

It’s not easy to choose only one. I like coming up with different mobile solutions that utilise location data, for instance. One interesting project was a navigation app for cars that monitors how staff members travel in real time. My current project is also very interesting but I can’t say more about it at the moment.

What do you do when not working?

I like to play both board games and computer games, and, when I get really inspired, I also programme my own projects. And I play frisbee golf every once in a while.

What drives you mad?

Badly functioning, closed apps.

Three favourite online services or apps you like to use?

Bitbucket, Telegram, Skype.

Best about Raasepori?

The feel. I love small towns.

Which software are you running on your computer right now?

Command Prompt, Android Studio, Chrome, Skype, Slack, Telegram, and Icedove.
