Jens Mikkelsen

Sitecore freelancer and consultant who has worked with web development and Sitecore for more than 15 years. I have worked as a developer, architect and technical lead. I have been a part of defining the best practice principles known as Sitecore Helix. As an outgoing person, I also work well in a role connecting the business and development or as a lead in a larger team.

CURRICULUM VITAE

Profile

I am a very professional consultant and a specialist in web development and I have been honored with the title Sitecore Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for 7 years in a row. I have worked with Sitecore since 2005 and have worked on some of the largest solutions in Denmark as well as in the rest of the world.

I focus on solid architecture and high code quality. I have especially worked on improving the lifespan of Sitecore solutions by designing websites and web applications with a high level of flexibility, maintainability and stability.

I am an expert in Sitecore Helix and helped define the principles.

I normally take a lead role in the projects I am a part of and becomes a driving force in a team. Also I thrive working between the business and the technical team making sure that they understand each other.

I am willing to travel for work.
