Janne Aukia joins Thinglink

We are excited to welcome Janne Aukia to Thinglink as Lead Front-end Developer.  Janne will develop the user interface for Thinglink products.

For the past ten years Janne has implemented rich user interfaces for both web and mobile applications. It all started when he got his own Mac at the age of ten.

Janne’s previous positions include Senior Developer at Futurice Oy, a Finnish software consultancy, and Marketing Manager and Researcher at Xtract Oy, a provider of analytic solutions for mobile operators. At Futurice he performed HTML5 and Javascript magic in both mobile and web projects. At Xtract he did his Master’s thesis on Bayesian analysis of social networks, in which he analyzed the activities of millions of users.

Janne’s hobbies include tinkering with Zoomooz.js, a jQuery plugin for making zooming web sites. The library has been a success with over 30 000 visits in just a couple of months. Janne is also one of the founders of Frontend Finland, an organization that brings together Finnish developers interested in user interface best practices.

Follow Janne on his blog (in Finnish), which has been running for nine years. He also tweets occasionally.

We warmly welcome Janne to our team! Now we have two Jannes on staff; our CTO Janne Jalkanen and Janne Aukia as a Lead Front-end Developer.

The question now remains, how many Jannes is enough?
