About

Hi!
I'm Mike Jensen, a software developer from the suburban area of Copenhagen, Denmark.

I've been working professionally as a developer since 2014, first as a Full Stack webdeveloper with PHP, and since 2017 as a Java Back-end Developer.
I started studying Computer Science in 2012, first as an AP degree and built upon it with a Bachelor's in Software Development, which I finished in 2016.

On a more personal note, I live together with my wife, our three daugthers and two cats.
I'm sort of an introvert, but when I get to know people and the team I'm working in, I like to think of myself as a spreader of joy and laughter. It's not all fun and games though, and I'm great at problemsolving, and being the guy that's leading by example by focusing on solving the issues that lies ahead.

I worked at Nuuday (former part of TDC) from 2017 up until start 2023, where I first was a Software Developer, and from 2019 I was a Senior Developer.
At Nuuday, I worked in a team that handled Customer Data and one of the most used in-house applications. Furthermore I was sole responsible for a Spring Boot API, that handled organised customers.

In February of 2023, I started as a Senior Developer at DXC Technology, where I worked on a system for the Danish Tax Agency, written in Java Spring Boot.

After DXC I moved to Danske Bank, in August 2023, where I'm currently employed as a Senior Software Engineer.
In Danske Bank I work on an upcoming solution for Debt Management, also written in Spring Boot with Java Reactive Programming.

I'm professionally familiar with technologies such as: Java Spring Boot, Cassandra, SQL and much more.

I have a tendency to build small webapplications in my sparetime, check under Showroom, to see if I've created something you might find useful.

I've been, in total secret, working on a Danish fanpage / infopage for Pokémon. Now with the Pokémon GO hype (even though it's not so hyped as the summer of 2016), there's a lot of people wanting infomation on Pokémon. I'm building a Danish community page for all the Pokémon fans in Denmark, that will include News (such as Niantic Pressreleases translated to Danish), Guides and general Pokémon info.

Online Movie Index

The Online Movie Index is a webapplication built in PHP, Python and MySQL. It's open source, and can be found on GitHub. In short, it's a way for the user to have an overview of all the movies the user own. Relies on some free api's on the web, along with some search API's that uses it's own Database.

Sucu
