I am CTO at solarisBank, the first banking platform focused on enabling digital business. We partner with disruptive fintechs as well as established digital companies to enable core functions or create new products and revenue streams. We offer banking services such as consumer credit, accounts, and marketplace/escrow solutions through a modular, lego-brick approach.
Previously, I worked as Chief Development Officer at the Company Builder HitFox Group / FinLeap in Berlin. There I built within 12 months a unit of more than 30 developers and designers that bootstrap up to 10 protoypes for new venture startups every year. Before I joined HitFox in May 2014 I founded the software engineering company Zweitag in Münster 2008 and grew it within 5 years to 27 employees. I studied Information Systems at the University of Münster and graduated with a master’s degree (MScIS). While at university, I worked as a freelance web engineer in a couple of projects for enterprise companies and start-ups. I'm committed to the startup scene and organize networking events for founders and tech meetups. For two years I was lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Münster for "Test Driven Web Development with Ruby on Rails" and "Web Engineering“. Furthermore I'm lecturer at the 2015 Data Science Summer School at University Saarland.
