Thomas Kjeldahl Nilsson
Independent Software Developer - Android Specialist
Specializing in Android app software development, consulting/contracting for customers in the private sector.
My current client is FINN.no AS, where I help their native app team maintain and develop the FINN Android app.
Worked as a senior developer at Shortcut, the leading Norwegian app development agency. Collaborating closely with UI/UX designers, I helped ship many high-profile apps while working across Android, web front-end and backend services. I also served as the designated mentor for our junior developers throughout my time at the company.
A selection of projects I worked on during my time at Shortcut:
NSB Underholdning: a high-profile app which the Norwegian State Railways (NSB) provides to its customers. For users with recent train tickets, the app provides free audio books, podcasts, music and more. I ironed out the system architecture of the project and developed the initial Android version of the app. Though faced with a challenging deadline, the project shipped on-time, and is used daily by thousands of commuters.
NAF Bilen Min: This app is part of a major effort on part of the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF) to create new, rich digital services for their customers. I worked on system architecture, some Android development, backend/integration development, and mentoring of junior project members. The project shipped on time, on budget and had multiple tens of thousands of users as of Q3 2015.
Legemiddelutregning: An app that serves as an aide for Norwegian nurses calculating medication dosage, timing and conversion. I helped ship multiple iterations of the Android version and worked on design, quality assurance, testing and requirement specification with the customer.
