We believe client feedback leads to better software. We work with agile methodologies, Scrum, and extreme programming (XP) practices and tooling every day, which accelerates how we deliver business value to our clients.
After a series of successful projects outsourced from Iceland to Romania, Code4Nord was founded by George Toman and Thordur Hoskuldsson. It all started in 2011 when an exchange student from Romania worked in Iceland for a company managed by Thordur.
Seeing how talented the Romanian student was as a software developer, the next step was to gain access to more of these quality nearshore developers.
Thordur and George started to work together on various Web projects in 2012 and, after two years of successful collaboration, they decided to start Code4Nord.
Since 2014, George and Thordur have brought together a team of very talented app and software developers who deliver high quality software services to startups and enterprises. Our teams of developers are client-focussed, which is why word of mouth is the most important way new clients find us.
Thordur is an Icelandic entrepreneur and avid traveller. He’s spent the last 20 years managing, project owning, investing in, and even founding IT startups and projects in Iceland. Today he runs his own IT company and is actively advising other startups in Iceland. Thordur co-founded Code4Nord in 2014 and became the company’s first customer.
With a Master’s in Computer Science and more than 12 years in the industry, George spent years working in Silicon Valley as a software developer, mostly with Microsoft .NET Technologies, before building a team in Romania. During his career he’s had the chance to work positions varying from software developer to project manager to upper management. George co-founded Code4Nord in 2014.
The newest member of the Code4Nord executive team is our business development partner Jan.
From his base in Copenhagen, Jan has spent more than three decades helping organisations define their unique value proposition, optimise their business, and plan growth hacking strategies.
He specialises in helping software companies find new markets across the Nordics. It’s been a great fit having Jan on our team since early 2019, as he helps us meet interesting customers who have exciting software challenges to be solved by great people.
As part of our commitment to Nordic work values, we look to maintain a high level of quality and transparency on our creative team. Each one of us is committed to making a difference and loves to build engaging software. We value adaptability, growth, and an eagerness to learn and adapt to client needs.
Our core set of values — Code4Nord’s DNA — makes us what we are and what we’re proud to be. Everybody at Code4Nord has a hand in keeping and nurturing these values:
We believe open and honest, two-way communication is key to understanding and meeting our clients’ needs. This means transparent updates and rapid feedback cycles.
Excellence comes from the desire for innovation and technical proficiency. Our team attains it through a belief in ourselves, a pride in what we do, and always striving to do better.
Keeping promises, taking responsibility as individuals and as a team, knowing we can rely on each other and working towards goals together.
We seek to actively involve our clients in every stage of the projects we carry out, thus making sure our distributed teams work together as One.
We encourage our colleagues to proactively seek innovative solutions for our clients and our teams, mentoring and fostering an entrepreneurial mindset that helps us achieve the best results.
It’s being able to rely on colleagues, trusting you can learn from and teach each other. It’s also about sharing enthusiasm for what we do, being passionate about it and enjoying the journey.
What Makes Code4Nord stand out?
Many IT service companies offer custom software development, but few have software engineering in their DNA like we do.
We balance technical expertise with superior soft-skills, delivering value through excellent communication and collaboration.
At Code4Nord, we approach every project as an opportunity for innovation.1
Unlike project-driven consultants or transactional code monkey factories, we focus on building a partnership with your business2
Our main goal is to understand your business and to take the project management and quality coding burden off of your shoulders.3
