Dear Sir or Madam

My name is Helena Hjertén, I am a Java developer and also mother of two lovely daughters.  I live with my husband and my two girls in Värmdö were we settled in 2000 after almost four years of working in Japan. Since returning from Japan, I have been working in the IT-business in various positions such as software developer, tester, test leader and participant in a Mobile Device Management Terminal Program.  Since September 2006 I am happy to fully pursue my favourite tasks – java development – as a consultant at auSystems (soon to be CyberCom).

I appreciate working with competent colleges and for a company with a clear goal for the future. I am very satisfied with being back on track with my long term goal of becoming a qualified system developer. I am also very satisfied with my current employer in many areas, but in today’s hectic life there are many different factors that together can form an interesting job situation in combination with a fruitful family life.


Since I had been away from development for some time during maternity leave before joining my current employer, I dedicated the autumn 2006 and spring 2007 to help increase the speed in my competence development pace. I pursued an evening training in Design Patterns at KTH, and study for the Java Certificate as well as pursue certain private projects.
