CV for Kasper Warmdal Filstrup

Kasper Warmdal Filstrup

Lead Frontend Developer
UI/UX SME at Capgemini Sogeti Danmark A/S

Frontend developer with focus on performance and maintainability.

With a natural interest in frontend technologies - and an eager to learn attitude - I strive to deliver innovative and complex solutions as simple and easy to use as possible.

With eyes on the ball and with great respect for business decisions and goals, shipping great code with excellent performance is a personal virtue.

With professional experience in sales, web design (UI), back- and frontend development, I have a lot of useful knowledge about everything from business decisions, to the user experience and a deep insight into the technical aspect of any online project.

As result of my broad experience, and as I've navigated through various seas of personas from all of the above stakeholders, I've gained a general understanding of what agendas could be at play in a project or any cooperation, and act accordingly.

Drive & Evolution

DNA

As a person, I'm extremely curious when it comes to technology. Ever since I was little, I've had Gadget Mania™

As a frontend developer, I navigate in an endless ocean of ever changing technology;
– Browsers gets updated almost daily
– New features arrives
– Old features deprecates.
– New frontend frameworks springs up almost as often as browsers update these days.

Without my natural born curiosity, I would have failed this profession years ago.

Professional evolution

I started as a sales rep for one of Denmarks largest web agencies and moved my way up to first being a graphical designer for the clients solutions, and ended in a leading backend developer role.
After that, I started my own company with a couple of old coworkers, and spend a couple of years learning a lot about business as well as figuring out more about my real core values. (an 80 hour work week wasn't one of them)

After that I've been assigned to a fancy agency in central Copenhagen, affiliated as a freelancer for a couple of companies in Startup Village in Copenhagen (Graduateland and Ontame.io), senior frontend developer for Denmark's largest toy retailer TOP-TOY, and currently, I'm a senior consultant for Capgemini Sogeti Denmark.
