Hi! I'm Morten, and i'm a developer.
I started studying Software Development at the IT-University of Copenhagen, and began my developer journey.
I switched lanes and enrolled in Copenhagen Business School studying Bussiness Administration and IT. However, I couldn't let development go, and I started my first job as a Wordpress and PHP developer at Alinea.
I began teaching Distributed Systems at Copenhagen Business School and I was simultaneously hired as Junior Frontend Developer at Statum (RIP 🪦).
Statum pivoted and had to let me go, but I continued on my path as a developer returned to the IT-University of Copenhagen to do a master's degree in Computer Science. At the same time, I was hired as a developer for a small fintech company called Reepay.
I moved to Sölden, Austria and worked three months as a skiguide. Afterwards I went on exchange to Kyoto University (京都大学) as a part of my master's degree.
I finished my degree, which culminated in a machine learning thesis titled Multilingual Detection of Offensive Speech in Social Media. Immediately after handing in the Thesis, I got a three month project employment as a full stack developer at Wisdome.
I'm head of IT at this awesome startup called nofipa. My most important job here is to enable the business to scale through IT. Regarding this, I'm responsible for all IT including but not limited to; internal automation of processes, full stack development of both internal- and outside-facing products, internal security and overall IT strategy - After all, it is a startup. You wear a lot of hats 🎩
