Our true cloud superhero, Peter Friberg, started at Fluido back in 2012 in the Fluido Stockholm office as one of the first ones to join the company outside Finland.
Peter has a long and broad background in IT, varying from source code teaching to hardware and software designing and engineering within different industries, from military airborne electronics for fighter jets and helicopters to mobile phone base stations. In total he has worked as a senior engineer and architect for 18 years before joining Fluido. And even the force.com technology is familiar to him already for more than 10 years!
He is keen on sharing his knowledge and is always ready to teach force.com best practices to his coworkers. As Peter is a true force.com enthusiast, he also regularly organizes the Stockholm Salesforce Developer Group meetups together with two other force.com enthusiasts, where Salesforce developers can meet face to face and share their know-how, experiences, and knowledge about the platform and learn new things from their peers.
For Peter, the best aspect of being a member of the Fluido team is the collaborative and multinational atmosphere with dedicated people who are similarly to him driven and engaged to learn more, helping out coworkers and enthusiastic about the technology that brings solutions to customers in a shorter timescale. “The joy to see a happy customer is just great!”, he adds. The warm atmosphere between the colleagues creates a kind family feeling where the employees have very low or no barriers to engage with anyone in the company. Salesforce releases new updates three times a year, which means improved functionalities to the platform constantly. This brings a new challenging aspect on the work of an architect dedicated to Salesforce, but definitely something Peter enjoys! Due to his curious nature, Peter dove quickly into the new Salesforce platform functionality which was released last year, and now he wishes to help his colleagues to learn it as well.
Peter has a family with small kids and this sometimes means that it’s hard to work a full week, but thanks to the flexibility at Fluido, some of the work follows him home. Busy times both at work and at home means he needs to plan his free time a bit to find time for sports and other hobbies. His favorite activities depend on the season: “Windsurfing with my friends is one of the things I am longing for in both Spring and Autumn”, he says. Downhill skiing is an important winter activity for him and in the summer Peter wants to enjoy sun, swimming, and gardening at his cottage as much as possible.
Peter looks at life as a journey of constantly learning more! In the future he wants to continue this path in learning new functionalities and technologies and to utilize them in even larger and more demanding projects with interesting needs and requirements to design and build great solutions. One of his dreams is to one day become a Salesforce certified Architect!
