About Joel Abrahamsson

Freelancing developer and architect. EPiServer Most Valued Professional. Rated among the top 10 developers in Sweden by Computer Sweden. Citizen of Stockholm.

I'm a freelancing systems developer and architect based in Stockholm, Sweden.

I work mainly with web development on the .NET platform and specialize in large scale solutions with EPiServer CMS and EPiServer Find. I also enjoy development with Javascript as well as many other languages and technologies.

I love problem solving and helping my customers achieve great results no matter if the solution is technical, organizational or something in between. As a consultant I often work in roles as tech-lead, architect, developer, technical project management or advisor. More often than not a single assignment involves several of those roles.


Once upon a time, very long ago, I started my career in sales and pre-sales working for the fast growing technology company WinEasy. As the dotcom bubble burst I went back to school and studied Industrial Engineering and Management at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

A couple of years later I joined the consulting company Trive, now known as Circuit, as a web developer. Having advanced to architect/tech-lead at Trive I later switched jobs and started working for fast growing web agency Nansen. After Nansen I worked for the larger consulting company Valtech.

In 2011 I co-founded 200OK AB, a company that developed a search and content retrieval product built on ElasticSearch named Truffler. The product was offered as Software-as-a-Service.

In 2012 the company was sold to EPiServer and the product was rebranded as EPiServer Find.

Since then I've been freelancing under my own company, Abrahamsson Software AB.

Honors and awards

In 2009 EPiServer made me an EMVP, EPiServer Most Valued Professional.

When Computer Sweden published their bi-annual list ranking the best software developers in Sweden in 2010 I was ranked as number five. Two years later, in 2012, I was again ranked among the top ten.

Speaking and publications

I occasionally present at developer conferences and user groups. In 2011 I held a presentation named "Progressive EPiServer Development" at both NDC and DevSum. In 2012 I again presented at DevSum, this time talking about ElasticSearch.

I'm an avid blogger and writer focusing primarily on subjects relating to software and web development.
