At the beginning of 2021, as most higher-education teaching was still being held online, I built Remote Student Exchange together with Johannes Haushofer at University of Stockholm, the Center for Effective Global Action at UC Berkley, and some volunteers. The platform aims to connect students from low- and middle income countries to professors at international universities for participation in their courses.
For the last few years, I've been helping out on the organizing team of Science Slam Zurich.
During my time at TICKETINO AG in Zurich, I worked on relaunching the online shop in a new look and on a more state of the art technology stack (.NET Core).
I mostly took over the role of Product Owner together with the CTO, but was also involved in documentation, analyzing the existing business logic and writing code directly with the team of developers.
During my last year at the company, I lead the developer team directly reporting to the CTO. The role consisted of about equal parts product development and coordination of custom development projects between the client-facing project managers and the developers.
I recently realized I kind of miss the old "link lists" websites used to have, so for lack of a better title, you can find some of my favourite online finds and regular reads/listens etc. over on this page.
