Erik – Founder & Senior Magento Software Engineer
Back in 2007, Erik co-founded an Enterprise Magento eCommerce agency, Classy Llama, and worked in that agency for 11 years. In 2018, he started Kraken with the desire to deliver world-class technical expertise at reasonable rates by running a team of cross-disciplined individuals with a small management/sales/marketing overhead.
Erik has led scores of Magento implementations over the years. His primary role at Kraken is to lead client engagements and oversee our development team.
He’s involved in the Magento ecosystem: he has helped write a Magento development book, frequently blogs about Magento best practices, has spoken at Magento conferences, and holds several Magento certifications. He has also contributed significantly to core Magento code.
Outside of the office you’ll find him spending time with his family, mountain biking, and enjoying nature
