About me

Hi! I'm Christian.

I am a 30 year old T-shaped professional product manager and software engineer living near Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

My specialization is generalization. When designing and building new products, I will consider everything in mind: Users, aesthetics, functionality and data and furthermore the real world around it.

I will not only create apps, but experiences, by combining opportunities, modern technology and market trends. Let us think outside the box!

Work history

CURSOR Software AG

Product Manager
Starting as a working student in development, I quickly found my place in product management thanks to my holistic view. Here I am responsible for the introduction of innovative technologies. Currently I am working on Platform Integration, Data Visualization, Relation and Knowledge Graphs and AI (NLP and Chatbots).
Since 2011

Aviate Solutions

Founder
Founded in November 2015 to realise the idea for our product 'EasyInstall', a maintenance assistant for smoke detectors. Since then I have been working alone or in small teams on the software and the cloud structures surrounding it. Sadly, we had to stop this project because we haven't made it to be profitable.
