Per Nilsson

A human technologist

I'm a hands-on software engineering leader with 15 years of experience.

I led the teams that delivered's first single-page checkout app, Burger King's mobile ordering and in-store kiosk, and the Starbucks store locator, transitioning them all to modern web technologies.

I stewarded the supportive, quality-first culture at Formidable and scaled the team from 20 to 90 engineers.

I'm always looking for opportunities to grow teams and solve problems with a positive impact on people, society, and the environment.
