Before jumping into the WHAT and HOW I'd like to start with the WHY. At first glance, my skills (WHAT) and approaches (HOW) seem to be quite interchangeable with potentially dozens of equally qualified people out there. So what is it that differentiates me from these other folks in the wild?
In actual fact I do love my job! During my long-standing work experience in brilliant companies, I shaped my professional but also personal profile – constantly searching for the optimum between quality and efficiency as well as fair, loyal and enthusiastic team work.
As a team leader of developers and a thoughtful technical director at Jung von Matt I appreciated how cooperative, empathetic and most of all passionate me and my colleagues were doing our jobs. Was it generating creative ideas non-stop, managing clients and projects with heart and soul or developing state-of-the-art web applications: People at JvM really reach for excellent results and "we remain dissatisfied" – one of JvM’s core principles – was not a mere cliche. This standard I adopted into my own working policy.
In contrast, my career stopovers at IBM were different in terms of work approaches, used technologies and project goals. But there too the people made the difference! An "IBMer" is proud to work at Big Blue and I've met people from all over the world with various backgrounds in terms of culture and profession. Putting so much effort into high-end tech always fascinated me and my colleagues were brilliant thinkers when it came to complex systems and architectures.
Probably, it has been these opposing working strategies which made it difficult for me to decide whether to work in the big corporate or the creative field. Both domains have their advantages and disadvantages - for sure. But why not combine the best of both worlds and mix it with some more of my personal values? That´s why I concluded that in 2019 for me it was time for a change. To make a change. To create something new and meaningful.
So here I am, wanting to get to know new people, exploring new ways of thinking and working as well as new approaches of building something with real value!
