Experienced creative developer who focuses on solving complex problems in simple ways and interested in everything digital.

About me.

Hi, I’m Johnie Hjelm. I’m a 31 year old digital product designer, full-stack developer and entrepreneur of sorts currently working as a Technical Lead Manager 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.

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.

My personal manifesto.

Get to the root of the problem

To come up with the best solution. I endeavour to stay curious and question, always.

Never not learning

There’s always something new to learn and improve on.

Keep it simple

Remember simplicity beats complexity. I want to stay true to myself.

But enough about me, how can I help you?
