WooRank is thrilled to introduce Jonas Johansson to our technical team! We thought we’d give him a chance to introduce himself this week (and show off a little).

Fast Facts

  • Name: Jonas Johansson

  • Age: 36

  • Position @WooRank: Developer

  • Languages: English / Swedish

  • Brief bio: I’m a Swede by birth. Supposedly my ancestors were Waloons, so I guess living in Brussels since November 2014 is a bit like getting back to my roots 😉 I studied in Umeå way up the northern Swedish east coast and got a Master of Science in Computer Engineering as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies. Before moving to Belgium I was living in Stockholm, where I put in a couple of years as a consultant before working at GpsGate (a startup in Fleet Management) for five years.

The Important Questions

  • What’s something you’re surprisingly good at? Pinball – I’m currently ranked #86 in the world. (Rumor has it Jonas will buy a colleague a beer if one of us can beat him… Better start practicing.)

  • What’s your favourite online time waster? http://waitbutwhy.com/

  • If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring with you? Avocado, Laptop and a Lord of the Rings Pinball Machine.

  • Do you have any hobbies? As a pinball junkie I go to a bunch of pinball competitions each year in Europe and USA. Travel by pinball!

  • What celebrity would you most enjoy meeting in real life? Lawrence Krauss.

  • What excites you most about becoming a WooRanker? I immediately recognized the culture at WooRank as something I like. WooRank as a startup software company has a focus on the quality of the product. It’s a fun way to work, as opposed to following strict deadlines, which I might have to do if I were working for a large consultancy company.

  • Do you pronounce .gif with a hard-g or a soft-g? Hard g, of course 🙂
