I’m an engineering manager. I work at Google. The opinions stated on this site are my own, not those of my company. I co-founded two start-ups. The first was a VC-backed online learning platform for enterprises. The second was an idea-sharing app funded by NFX and Y Combinator’s fellowship programme.
I’m always trying to get better at building valuable things; particularly at building valuable things together with others. I’m fascinated by questions such as: How do groups build trust? What motivates people? How do you tailor culture to a mission? How can large teams move fast? How do you hire effectively? Why is software difficult to do well? How do you create a great product? How do you build a great company?
I grew up in Sweden, read Engineering & Computing Science at Oxford, worked in London as a management consultant for a couple of years, and have been living in Switzerland since 2011.
I’ve grown fond of how the Swiss combine pragmatism with an appreciation for quality.
