Stein has a Master's degree in Computer Science from NTNU (1996). The larger part of his career has been spent in banking, finance, telecom and health care domains. For the past 15 years, he has mainly been working with back end development related to web solution projects - with the odd front end involvement now and then. Stein has profound insights into multi tier application development based on the .NET and Java platforms, web applications, and large scale integration projects. He understands project processes thoroughly, and relates to the opportunities that a solution provides to the business.

Stein appreciates familiar surroundings, but is also thrilled by new challenges. He enjoys a variety of sports both outdoors and inside. Boat, seaside cabin and house occupies both him and his family in most weekends and vacations.
