Chief Information Officer

Usability’s strength is in identifying problems, while design’s strength is in identifying solutions.


Johan Umefjord

"Any full-stack systems developer must understand how complexity is their natural and sworn mortal enemy. They should understand that keeping things simple in a complex domain is a necessary evil that must be extremely carefully managed, in addition, a prerequisite for robust financial applications is a desire to understand every possible scenario why and how a system could possibly fail. If you can master these basic skills, come and work for me."
