Web Developer | Designer | DevOne conference organizer | Speaker | Adventurer | Captain | Mountainbiker

I’m currently part of the Design Operations team at Dynatrace.

After 3 years as a ux designer and web development I'm now a Design Operations engineer. My focus is currently the Barista Design System. And I’m passionate about spending my development time to support the groundhog, a CSS component library for our web entities. My favorite project is organizing the DevOne developers and DevOps conference. Besides, I spend my time with public speaking.

I like to be challenged and I love to extend my knowledge.

I like to take every chance of early feedback to improve my work. Therefore, teamwork is very important for me. In my current setup I’m working a lot with modern web development approaches in an agile environment. While ideas start for me with sketches on the whiteboard or paper - tools like Visual Studio Code, Atom, GitHub, Sketch, Adobe Illustrator and Invision support my work from the wireframe level to the final implementation. I have knowledge and hands-on experience of user testing and animation design.

As a result of various jobs and projects I matured as a team player and I have earned experience as a team leader and mentor. Moreover, I have a lot of knowledge in working in a distributed team. I like to organise monthly team events since the very beginning, they are boosting the team spirit and are always a lot of fun. Besides that, I enjoy attending local tech meetups.
