I am a computer science engineer. Right after completing my studies, I started working at Bosch Inc. in Farmington Hills (USA) in 1999. At that time, I was employed in central IT, where I developed web software for e-commerce systems for many Bosch divisions. In 2006, I became the product manager for Bosch e-commerce systems, including international rollouts. As the head of ERP and BI development for Bosch Packaging Technology, I gained a lot of experience in enterprise IT, mostly SAP. In 2010, I became CIO of Bosch Solar CISTech GmbH. From 2012 to 2014, I was in charge of IT infrastructure for Gasoline Systems worldwide. Then in 2014, I returned to software development as Product Owner of the IoT “Connected Products Portal” project at Bosch Thermotechnik GmbH. The product is known in the German market as Junkers HomeCom and Buderus Control Center Connect, and will be rolled out to additional European countries in 2016.
