Alexander Czigler

Code, DevOps & NoEstimates mentor at Iteam Solutions

About me

I work as a mentor, developer and devops engineer at Iteam Solutions in Stockholm, Sweden.

I have a strong passion for technology, learning new things and creating order. By combining these perks and my over ten years experience as a consultant I am excellent at helping companies accelerate their journey towards digital transformation. I can work side-by-side with both developers, tech, operations and business helping out with anything from code, devops and methodologies.

As a person I favor minimalism and minimum viable design. I like when things are made or done with purpose in mind and this passion of mine is strongly reflected in any work I do.
Since Apr 2017 I am working full time with one of Sweden's major banks, SEB, helping them accelerate their digital transformation. My role there is somewhere between being a mentor and an agile coach, working side-by-side with their developers, scrum masters and testers.
At a hackathon held by Refugee Tech in february me and a few coworkers started building a mobile app to map and visualise competences and skills among Sweden's newly arrived refugees. The project was called Competency but has now turned into JobSkills:
This year I start working with Taxi Stockholm, one of Iteam's biggest clients so far. We are helping them with building a new public API, security audits and customer loyalty systems. I am working alongside my coworkers at Iteam to help them start transforming into a more digital company and to begin learning more about their customers.
In the beginning of 2014 I start working with Telenor Sweden's fighter brand Vimla. Since then I have been working on the backend of their public web (.NET), building a brand new public API (Node.JS) and a community running on NodeBB. I have also been deeply involved in transforming the way Vimla works with software development from a traditional scrummy way to more lean, MVP-driven methodologies. I have also been leading the transformation of their traditional .NET website to a microservice architecture running on Docker and linux.

I also helped start the transformation of their Flash based application to a pure html5 + JavaScript + NaCl version.
In Feb 2010 I joined Iteam Solutions.
In Aug 2010 I moved on to work at Mogul in Stockholm.

My role at Mogul was working as a consultant for TV4, one of Sweden's largest television networks. I build and maintain their sales support system, a monolithic system with over ten years worth of patches, legacy code and various types of integrations. The system handles all of the advertising sales for both national and local advertising spots, making it crucial for the company's ability to make money.
In Jan 2008 I joined Hitone Nordic as a consultant.

I build business intelligence applications using DataSet Vision, SQL Server, Lawson M3 (Movex). I also begin learning C# and I do some consulting for Dovado working on their embedded Linux platform.
