Creative Developer who focuses on solving complex problems in simple ways.

About me.

Hi, I’m Johnie Hjelm. I’m a 29 year old digital product designer, full-stack developer and entrepreneur of sorts currently working as a Technical Lead at Bambuser.

I’ve been designing and writing code since my early teens (that period seems further and further away now!). So far, I’ve avoided to put myself under one label — to specialise in one thing only — and instead gone for this Jack of all Trades role in the various teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I like all things graphic and digital design, front and backend development, product, strategy and API design.

As for non-tech things in startups, I’ve become more and more interested in the methods of leading teams and how to work smarter. That is, how the well-being of each team member is kept central while the work can progress in a smooth way. I think ideas are powerful, but the execution is crucial for success and the team behind the work.

After hours, I enjoy mentoring through Crip in Tech - a tiny incubator for delightful people who are excited about working in tech.

In my spare time, I run a podcast called Fredagsdrinken were we explore the world of mixology and cocktails, I also like working on other personal projects and learning new things.

Main skills.


Logo & identity design.


Software development is my core competence.


I add value to organizations through creative processes and solving challenges in alignment with the business mission.
