Marten Bjork

This is me

I'm a designer, developer & photographer from Sweden. Since 2019, I work as a Senior Product Designer at Shopify in Ottawa.

What I do

  • Design. I design services, tools and interfaces using tools like Figma and Framer.

  • Front end. I write semantic HTML and know the ins and out of CSS. I can write vanilla JavaScript or implement a full-fledged React app from scratch.

  • Back end. In my youth I used PHP and MySQL — nowadays I mostly opt for a node-based stack. I frequently implement APIs, set up databases, connect third party auth providers and everything else you need to get a modern SaaS back-end up and running.

  • Photography. I've always liked photography. In 2018, I took things one step further and took up freelancing as a photographer. Things are going well, but I'll keep the photography as a side-gig — designing and programming is too much fun.
