About Me


Jesper Kjeldgaard

For the past 7 years I have worked as a developer in several startups, working with various technologies like Ruby on Rails, React and Android. Throughout this time I have evolved my skills in building features that focus on solving the problem in the simplest and fastest way possible. I believe that getting a feature out in front of the user and iterating on it based on their feedback and behaviour, is the most important aspect of whether it will be a success.

I love being involved in the creative process from idea conception to deploying and maintaining the finished product, and this is one of the reasons I decided to become a self-employed software consultant in 2015. I am well-versed in both front-end and back-end development, not shying away from anything that is needed to get the job done. Whilst I enjoy working with the latest and greatest frameworks and languages, I prefer using stable technologies that have been tested and honed.

In summery, the values that drive my work are:

  • Communication is paramount to the success of a project.
  • A problem is best solved in iterations guided by a solid feedback loop.
  • Test-Driven Development helps ensure the correctness and maintainability of a system.
