Software Developer Consultant, June 2005 – May 2006
Foxguard sells automotive immobilizer devices for vehicles to prevent intoxicated individuals to drive. They supply hundreds of workshops, whom perform thousands of installations. I came as a third party consultant for analyzing and implementing a web based solution to manage the data generated by performed installations. I developed a solution that enhances the business process both from the resellers and the internal perspective. Foxguard can now export rich sets of the data, search for events and transactions and fully manage the accounts and information. The resellers have their own database of customers, devices, codes and access to documentation.

Webengineer, 1999-2001
The mission at Boppnet was to create a web based marketplace where international producers and importers could conduct business. Manufactures had the opportunity to showcase their products to potential buyers. Working close with partners the platform grew to support chambers of commerce organizations, logistics integration, payment solutions, company databases, venture capital forums and other resources. Given the global spectrum there was a need for a high performance solution based on Web Server Clusters and Oracle which I architected and developed in conjunction with graphic artists, marketing and management.
