      My Expertise

My core areas of expertise that help me do my best work


I'm a startup generalist and an MBA student. I've worn many hats from overall management to marketing and business development, and have a good grasp of how companies function.

Data & Research

I have a degree in Psychology with a heavy focus on statistics. I've made some academic publications too. I emphasize the importance of data and evidence-based decision-making.

Software Development

I built a successful career as a tech recruiter, building dev teams. I've always worked close to developers, and enjoy building things with code (JavaScript & Python) as well.

Design Thinking

I studied Design Thinking for two years before my recruitment career. The customer-driven iterative and curious mindset is how I approach and solve problems.

Passion for Building

Hey there! I'm Max, an ex-recruiter and SaaS entrepreneur, who recently switched gears and got into Product Management.

I spent several successful years as a tech recruiter, and ended up leading Nordic region's Talent Acquisition efforts at UiPath, a global software unicorn.

After UiPath, since 2019, I've been focusing more and more on product work, fueled by startup experience and a passion for solving hard problems.

Co-Founder at Hireproof

Ideated and built a B2B recruitment SaaS with two technical co-founders. Responsible for overall product strategy, growth, and wore many hats.

“Max is a bright, motivated and enthusiastic manager. As the Programme Manager, he was responsible for booking and managing the event's dozen performers and their shows, and led a team for the preparations, implementation and dismantling of the event. The work was voluntary and demanded a lot of time and dedication. Max works well under pressure and independently, and I was very glad to have had him on board.”

Kristian Linnoinen

Founder at Mint & More Creative
“While working with Max at FOVE, we collaborated on structuring the interviewing process to guarantee that employees were a better fit for the company - both technically and personally - using evidence-based approaches. Max' expertise helped filter out unfit candidates, allowing us to spend more time doing in-depth technical interviews with remaining candidates. I would highly recommend Max for anyone looking to apply a modern approach to HR.”

Remco Kuijper

Rust Tech Lead at Nomic Foundation
“In about a week of meeting with Max, he managed to find us a group of stellar candidates for a lead position that we had difficulty filling ourselves. He also supported us during the rest of the recruiting process. As a result, we made a hire that our team is very happy with. We will definitely work with Max again in the future!”
