Biography

Early on

Some say you cannot visit your neighbor without climbing a mountain. Housing around 100,000 citizens, Siegen is the place where David studied and started his first jobs.

At the age of 16, after mastering an internship at an ERP manufacturer, David started a part-time job at that same company. Being a small yet powerful and international company, he decided to continue his career at this promising place. He chose a work-study program, making an apprenticeship in specialized computer sciences and studying Business Informatics at the same time. Being very passionate about clean code, extensible design and scalable architectures, David always also showed great interest in IT and business processes, and facing customers and their requirements. In his second stage of the career, David joined a Business Software Consultancy Company, which offered ERP solutions and invested in other business software, such as accounting, ECM, and IT service solutions.
