Paul Rostorp // FullStack Developer

I am a passionate, entrepreneurial and driven developer who thought himself to code at age 11. I love tackling new challenges and thrive in creative environments. I'm a quick & eager learner. In a team, you'll find me to be enthusiastic and sociable, with a lot to bring to the table.

I have extensive experience developing fullstack mobile-first products (native and web-native), working with big data, complex data modeling (graphs) and recommendation algorithms. My expertise is in Javascript, but I do pretty well in Python, Php, Java and GO too.

I am a native French & English & Swedish speaker and I understand most Danish.
I love music, biking, and of course coding.
