The journey from consultant to project manager
From an early age, Johann began to take an interest in IT, and in 2012, he started coding his first program. His curiosity for problem-solving and bringing new ideas to life has laid the groundwork for his career path.
“The idea of exploring and playing with new ideas intrigued me, so I started studying project management. However, I never lost interest in web development, and I often used my spare time to build new websites. While being an exchange student in the US, I got to work with programming. That was when I decided that I wanted to pursue a career within IT”, Johann explains.
A past within music
For as long as he can remember, Johann has worked with music. Although Johann chose to start on a new bachelor`s degree in Data Technology to expand his knowledge, IT wasn`t the only thing he focused on. He also wanted to work more with his music company “Sounds”.
“Since I was a child, I have enjoyed working with music as a hobby. Therefore, while studying Data Technology, I also wanted to spend more time working on my music company, Sounds, which I co-founded in 2016. After just a couple of months, we received excellent feedback on many of our songs. We even got the opportunity to play in front of 10,000 people in The Viking Ship arena in the Speed Skating World Cup in 2020”.
A new adventure in Oslo
In 2022 he got the chance to move to Oslo and come work for Netcompany – and he didn’t hesitate for a second before accepting the offer.
“I knew some people who were working at Netcompany, and they told me a lot of positive things about the working environment. I also considered it as a great opportunity to move to a new city and get to expand my network.”
“With the Municipality of Oslo, which is one of the biggest working places in Norway, I believe that the trust we have in each other, and a great working environment is key to our success so far."
From the get-go, Johann’s knowledge impressed his colleagues, and after only a few months, he was presented with the possibility of becoming project manager on his project. “In Netcompany, you get to develop yourself within a career path that suits your competencies. During my day-to-day tasks, I like to take responsibility, and when the opportunity to become project manager presented itself, I had to take it!”, Johann says.
Building a safe environment for the Municipality of Oslo
During the last year, Johann and his team have played a critical part in creating a safe environment for the municipality of Oslo. “With the Municipality of Oslo, which is one of the biggest working places in Norway, I believe that the trust we have in each other, and a great working environment is key to our success so far. Going forward, we will continue to ensure that every function can operate optimally. At the same time, I will also explore new ways to improve my own skillset as a leader so that we can continue our growth as a team”, Johann concludes.
