About 2Park

Our goal is to digitise all off street parking! We expect to take over 4.5 billion pictures of license plates to handle over 70 million parkings across 6 countries in the next 12 months. Being part of Indigo Invest and IPG gives us deep insights from industry leading parking operators. We are confident that parking is ripe for total disruption. We have already come a long way but have loads to do, join us and be a part of ridding the world of fines and unfriendly end-user solutions.

The team

Erik Elmsäter

CEO

Erik has held several commercial management positions in the aviation sector for both Norwegian and Ryanair. Before that he studied Business School at Luleå University of Technology. He is passionate about entrepreneurship, commercial strategies and growth.

At 2Park he pays the bills, hires (and fires) staff as well as heading commercial and strategic tasks. Most importantly he spearheads key projects like “Pølsetorsdag” (Thursday Hot-Dogs).

Erik is the residential sadist that enjoys unnatural long triathlons and seems to be either on a diet or gaining weight. He can solve a rubik’s cube in under 60 sec, juggle with three knives and owns a cabin up north where reindeers out populate humans by an order of magnitude.

 

Lars Brandt

CTO

Lars holds a MSc in IT from Swinburne University of Technology in Australia. After almost a decade at Bekk Consulting delivering successful software projects, he joined 2Park in 2016 to be a part of building a young tech company from scratch.

At 2Park Lars is responsible for all the tech stuff. Although he is our CTO, he is surprisingly sociable, and we all greatly appreciate his efforts in bringing awesomeness to the office life at 2Park.

Lars simply loves to build stuff. He also enjoys golfing and skiing, and goes for a long run once in a while.

Even though he is young at heart, at 40 Lars is the old geezer in the office!

Morten Bergsten

Product Manager

Morten has a MSc degree in Industrial Economics and Technology Management from NTNU. His specialisation is in commercialisation of new technology.

As 2Park’s Product Manager, Morten helps the team and company to ship the right product to the users. His job is to make sure that our products are valuable, usable and feasible. As a Product Manager you can find Morten in the intersection between business, user experience and technology. Exciting stuff!

Morten is 2Park’s residential hipster. He has a beard, a vinyl collection, tattoos, and a sailboat.

 

Mikkel Neple

Commercial Manager

Mikkel holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Marketing and Management from BI Norwegian Business School and Fudan University, Shanghai.

He started his professional career in Shanghai doing business development for CDF International Ltd. After moving back to Norway Mikkel has worked at Hewlett Packard and SAS focusing on business development, sales and management.

At 2Park, Mikkel’s focus is on the commercial side of the business, working with customers, finding the right partners and figuring out how to make all the awesome innovative tech the team produces profitable.

On his free time Mikkel loves to travel, eat and cook.

Linda Falang

User Experience Designer

Linda has a Master’s degree in Design for All from Mid Sweden University and a Bachelor’s degree in Product Design from Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences.

Linda is our primary link to the outside world where the real customers live. She spends a lot of her time talking to customers, getting to the bottom of what they actually need from our products. Then she returns to the office, and quickly makes some prototypes based on the insight gathered. Then she does it all over again. Boom!

Stian Mathiassen

Lead Developer

Stian holds a Master of Technology in Electronics Engineering from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

When Stian is not deep into programming image manipulation or improving recognition speed, he is often in discussion with the rest of team to find good solutions for our applications. He enjoys programming, cloud, streamlining deployment and lightweight architecture. His job is to make sure the software we produce has excellent quality and that everyone on the team is pulling in the same direction.

When not at work Stian is at a restaurant. A food guy he is.

 

Tamás Földesi

Senior Developer

Tamás has two MSc degrees, one in Software Engineering, and another one in Electrical Engineering.

He moved from Hungary to Norway in 2012 and has settled down here with his wife and child. Tamás is a fluent Norwegian speaker.

At 2Park he’s setting bits and bytes in the right order to make machines behave. His area of expertise is Java development, software architecture, and he loves building things both on and outside of computers.

If you see someone in the office wearing a tech t-shirt – it’s probably Tamás. And we love it!
