Owned the release of an in-vehicle infotainment system end-to-end and delivered high quality on schedule by effectively communicating with external and internal stakeholders to define scope and schedule across two continents Performed outstanding customer communication, release planning and proved excellent project management skills resulting in delivery of several dozen software releases on-time, on-budget and on-quality to the customer Enabled national and international customers to develop prototypes based on the AUTOSAR standard by disseminating the know-how acquired by self-study and asking the right questions to the right people Presented the finished AUTOSAR basic software and tools at an international fair after planning and leading the development of embedded software and coordinating with tool development Performed research in information and coding theory Graduate studies in communication systems specializing in mobile communications:
  • Wireless networks
  • Radio engineering
  • Distributed systems
  • Signal processing
  • Digital communications
Diplom thesis: "Block Equalization and Interference Cancelation for OFDM" at the Wireless Systems Department (formerly part of Bell Labs) at Agere Systems, Inc. in Murray Hill, NJ, USA
Graduate studies in communication systems:
  • Computer networks
  • Real-time computing
  • Operating systems
  • Communication theory
  • Signal processing
The graduate studies enhanced my knowledged of communication technologies through all layers of the OSI model.
Pre-diploma studies in computer science:
  • System programming
  • Digital circuit design
  • Information and communication
  • Information systems
  • Computer science basics
The pre-diploma studies provided a solid base for later software development tasks and proved to be particularly helpful in the definition of solid software architectures.
Transitioned from automotive client to cloud services software and delivered a cloud service to evaluate, measure and predict customer feedback by aggregating subjective user feedback and objective log data from external and internal sources Created more efficient procedures and workflows by introducing new tools and methods, leading the company process improvement group and encouraging employees to get involved in the definition of the development process Set up a process for an embedded software development project which served as input for a company-wide process Created exercises and lab sessions for the students in digital circuits design, information theory and cryptography
Improved the team's efficiency by proposing and building tools which became standard tools in project tracking to get progress reports in a single click and a test tool which later served as a basis of 50% of all the automated testing Built and evolved a software development team by training, coaching and forming team members as well as defining clear responsibilities and a main focus for every team member Ascertained on-time and on-scope delivery of software to the customers by establishing a common understanding for all involved parties Achieved common planning for building blocks of the AUTOSAR solution by organizing meetings and setting up a release plan Held exercises and lab sessions, evaluated and graded student projects
Volunteered to help in the employee satisfaction program and achieved an improvement of five percent points in one year Fostered knowledge exchange among departments and locations by organizing workshops and meetings and encouraging communication among the employees
