EMPOWERING PEOPLE AND ORGANISATIONS AT THE INTERSECTION OF TECHNOLOGY, SUSTAINABILITY AND NEW WORK.

Work environments are changing. Big corporations are adopting startup practices to become agile and flexible in highly dynamic markets and new generations of employees seek purpose and positive impact. Agile practices that changed the way we build software are now being merged with other approaches to build company culture and self-organising teams that can address these new challenges.

With a broad tech background and over a decade of experience in building and leading agile teams, I am helping startups and corporations to excel at this intersection of technology, sustainability and new work.

Experience.

01. TECHNOLOGY.

I am a computer scientist. Acting as chief developer, CTO and managing director in different spin-offs and startups in the smart home and energy efficiency sector, I build excellent products and solve challenging software and hardware issues. During my research and my work I was able to build a broad skillset across tools and methods ranging from Agile practices to big data and machine learning skills, applied to hardware- and software development in Agile and DevOps teams. I now utilize this vast toolbox to build exciting systems and address transformational challenges. Technology is an end for many. For me it is the means to fuel change and support flexibility.

02. SUSTAINABILITY.

Due to my deep conviction that sustainability can make a change, I co-founded the growing sustainability network Sustainability Drinks and GreenBuzz Berlin in 2014. This inspiring project ensures a close link to the sustainable and social entrepreneur scene in Germany and abroad, and gives me the chance to empower emerging sustainable and social startups in their growth. I am enthusiastic to make this world a better place and spend a lot of time making my work and my personal life more sustainable. This includes for example plastic free living, a vegetarian diet, bicycle over other transport, stairs over escalators.

03. NEW WORK.

Technology provides the tools to organize, but it does not replace good communication, collaborative interaction and joined purpose. Inspired team members and efficient work structures are key to achieve ambitious goals. Leading and building tech teams since 2005, I am applying innovative tools like Agile development and practices from Teal, Holocracy, and Sociocracy to shape future work environments and build self-organizing teams.

Tools & Technologies.

CLOUD COMPUTING, MOBILE APPS, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

I am working with agile teams building mobile and web applications using cloud environments like AWS and DevOps practices.
Frontend I have been building web and mobile applications using HTML/Javascript with AngularJS, React-Native and various state of the art frameworks.
Backend Backend technologies comprise Python, NodeJS, Scala and Java environments with large scale database systems, mostly running on AWS.
Cloud Computing I used AWS for most of my projects (with occasional Joyent and Hetzner hosts as needed).
CI/CD All recent projects used CI/CD based on tools like Jenkins, Travis and CircleCI. Most recently I setup build chains with GitHub, CircleCI and fastlane to deliver react-native apps directly to the App- and Play-Store.
Tools We usually deploy a broad range of monitoring tools like CloudWatch, New Relic, Circonus, Sentry as well as Google Analytics, Segment, etc. I have widely used JIRA, PivotalTracker, Trello as well as tools like Sketch, InVision and Zeppelin.
