To keep up with the increasing number of Atlassian platforms Refined is supporting we are growing our team. To continue to give our customers and partners high quality support and spread the word about our awesome platform we are strengthening our support team as well as our marketing, development and HR teams.

Jonas Svensson – Marketing Manager
Jonas is part of the Refined marketing and sales team. As marketing manager Jonas is working with the overall marketing strategy, tracking campaigns, content etc.
After living and working in such exotic places as Boston, Gothenburg and Stockholm his longing for the south of Sweden resulted in him moving home some eight years ago. Since then he has been a Malmö resident and it’s been a perfect fit. With a background in the media industry he is now excited to work in the tech world.
He is often described as a multifaceted man, a renaissance man if you wish. He moves unhindered between diverse interests such as hiking in the wilderness and avant garde cooking. Jonas believes that a good spiced aquavit is best accompanied by an equally spiced anecdote.
Fun fact: Jonas is a licensed hunter, not because he hunts but because it’s a good skill to have during an apocalypse.
