I'm an international conference speaker: to date I've spoken in Manchester, London, France, Italy, Serbia, Bulgaria and some usergroups and companies privately to groups of between 200 and 600 people at the main conferences and I love sharing my knowledge and helping others who want to learn!

Right now I'm working at Sixt - within 4 months I was tasked with leading a team to rewrite micro services in our customer registration and activation domain. Tech includes: Golang, distributed systems, microservices, DDD and a healthy dose of pragmatism, and within the year I will be working more in management.

At trivago, I led and mentored two teams of senior and mid-level developers and operations at trivago on the from-scratch creation of distributed systems bringing in several hundred million euros a year. I was also responsible for managing expectations with stakeholders, sprint planning and prioritisation for both teams, interviewing external developers as a hiring manager, mentoring and making architectural decisions with senior developers as well as diving in and contributing more directly with the codebase each week. I much prefer 'hands-on'.

I hang around in Room 11 (PHP) on StackOverflow chat, come say hi!
