Name:Fredrik Nickander
Date of birth:11 July, 1988
Address:Granbacken 6, Bromma, Sweden
At the age of 12 I got my first computer. Later the same year I broke my first computer. I've broken more since then, but I'm proud to say I've never broken two the same way. I'm a logichian and problem solver with an intreset in comupter security, cryptography and system design. A keen learner with a knack for maths, languages and music. And if you belive in such things; I have tested INTJ with an exceptional skill for logic and abstract reasoning.


2012 - present

CA System Specialist

Viasat Satellite Services

Infrastructure planning and sizing, platform architecture, system engineering, project management, requirement specification, integration and testing, programming and much more. Many are the strings on the systems specialists bow. One day I analyze MPEG transport streams and another I scope technical projects or purchase services and equipment. All with a common goal: Content protection and platform security. The broadness of my job has given me a vast and fundamental understanding on most technical details of media distribution.

2010 - 2012

CA System Engineer

Viasat Satellite Services

As CA system engineer I worked every day to keep the conditional access platform in good running order. This included system maintenance and administration, technical planning, integration and testing as well as requirement specification for technical systems and workflow management. This job lay the important system engineering foundation I now rely on.


2004 - 2006

Three years of intense high scool studies, combined with hours and hours of musical education. With a background in classical music - I got to broaden my views with both singing, playing several instruments, both classic and contemporary, and my favorite subjects: Music theory.
