Jonatan Östling


The past few years have been rather eventful for Jonatan Östling. He’s gone from just getting started as a developer in 2014, to serving at the frontlines of a top-secret project as an Avensia Developer Trainee.

“I’ve grown so much here at Avensia, in such a short period of time. A few years ago, I really couldn’t have imagined being where I am today.”

No day is ever quite like the other at Avensia, if you ask Jonatan. Here, he’s had the opportunity to learn and exercise skills in everything from React, Redux and JavaScript to HTML, CSS and even Photoshop.

“One of the greatest things about the Avensia Developer Trainee program is that you’re really free to pursue knowledge in all areas. When I expressed an interest in UX design, I was met with excitement and encouragement. So, whenever there are no other immediate Front End tasks, I’m focusing on learning more about UX!”

Since starting at Avensia, Jonatan has developed a better understanding of the flow of applications – and his enthusiasm for taking on tough tasks has grown even stronger.

“One of the most valuable things I’ve learned so far is trusting in my own ability, and being independent. If I encounter a seemingly impossible task, I jump at the opportunity to try to solve it – and it usually works out!”
