WHAT DO I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT MYSELF?

ABOUT ME

I am a young Front End Developer with internship experience at Denmark’s largest online dictionary company, Ordbogen.com. Along with my internship experience, I also have experience working with clients due to my freelance work. I am finishing my Multimedia Design and Communication studies on the 22nd of June, therefore now looking for a full time permanent position as a front end developer.

I spend most of my time working on projects for either clients or personal projects. Learning and expanding my knowledge about web technologies is also something i spend a lot of time doing.

Who am I as a person you may be thinking? I am very ambitious and aspire to learn as much from my surroundings as possible. I see myself as very friendly and easy to communicate with.

TECHNOLOGIES I USE

CODINGDESIGN

My true passions lies with front end development, but my core competences reach beyond just coding. HTML, CSS, JavaScript frameworks (JQuery, AngularJS, Angular 2) as well as Bootstrap are skills that not only I excel at, but I still find exciting to work with. I am familiar with PHP and MySQL and have worked with them on several occasions. I have briefly worked with Smarty, which is a template engine that Ordbogen.com used. I understand the logic behind object orientated code through Angular 2 and can easily translate the same logic to backend frameworks if needed.

I spend a lot of time learning new coding technologies which you will be able to get a insight aswell.

I have internship experience working as a digital designer at Ordbogen.com. Designing mockups and various marketing peices is something i feel confident in doing and have experience doing so. The Adobe Package is the software bundle of choice. Currently moving into Adobe Experience Design for designing mockups, although i would prefer working with Sketch.

Being able to design aswell as code eleminates the need of a supporting designer. You get more bang for you buck hiring me!

I have designed print marketing peices for PR events aswell as Social Media content. If you are interested in seeing these marketing peices I have designing click here to skip to my showcase.

Read full recomendation letter

It’s my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Thomas Messell. Thomas has been with us at Ordbogen.com on a digital design/front-end programming internship at Ordbogen from January 24th-April 24th 2017.

Thomas’s tasks were widely varied. He worked on digital design and animation pieces for SoMe, designed and coded an internal messaging and task board for the marketing department, designed, updated and implemented new pages to our existing careers website and generally picked up necessary tasks when needed.

As a person, Thomas is a hard worker. He focuses on the task at hand, and is constantly striving to learn more. He certainly has a very keen eye for modern, clean design and is an absolute asset in the way that he can design and then implement his design via programming. He has demonstrated an easy ability to work with various stakeholders and team members and has produced some very unique design pieces for us as a company.

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Thomas to join as a junior frontend programmer or digital designer on any team. As a dedicated and knowledgeable employee and an all-around great person, I know that he will be a beneficial addition to your organization.

Please feel free to contact me at +45 39 99 20 36 or at wjo@ordbogen.com should you like to discuss Thomas’s qualifications and experience further. I’d be happy to expand on my recommendation.

Best wishes,

Whitney Jørgensen
