Not all roads run straight
Growing up in a teacher's family in the countryside, I quickly realized my heart was set on IT. However, at that time IT was very traditionally oriented, there were only a few IT apprenticeships and they were quite "hands-on". I finally found my way to IT via a detour as a geomatics engineer and was able to take my first steps in the field of digitization in the internal department of my training company. I gained a broad insight into a wide range of IT topics and digitization at my former employer and then start-up, where I passed through many interesting stations over a period of 10 years. From technician to project member to team leader and member of the management board, I was able to take on a variety of functions and tasks. This allowed me to develop an eye for higher-level digitization and gain experience in this area.
Every function and every role matters
I enjoy working with interesting personalities who bring specific know-how, are curious and motivated, and pursue modern approaches to solutions. These factors also played an important role in my decision to move to Amanox. The start in the "Covid lockdown" was challenging, among other things because it took me a long time to get to know all my colleagues not only digitally but also physically. I really appreciate the fact that we have a team of professionals here who help each other and share their knowledge in order to achieve optimal results. The team is important and yet, in a small company like Amanox, each individual can have a direct influence on solutions and results.
A communicator among IT engineers
Even in IT, it doesn't come down to technical ability alone. A hub function like the one I perform as a presales, for example, also requires communication that is appropriate for the target group and the ability to build relationships with the product team, customers or even technicians. While technical skills are still important, a passion for learning and translating technical information and solutions for diverse audiences, are equally important. This allows me to provide the best advice to customers and figure out the best solution for their use case.
Unwinding with the family and sports
Communication and coordination also play an important role in my private life. Family life with my wife and our two daughters is the most precious thing to me and that's when I also want to be involved, be present and give the family my full attention. In everyday life, but also when we go on our annual, now traditional camping vacations and have fun windsurfing or swimming. I like to be in nature and enjoy doing sports outside and recharging my batteries while snowboarding or skiing. I really appreciate that my work here gives me enough freedom to find a good balance between professional and private life.
