Curriculum Vitae

Professional Career

Since October 2019 Senior Solution Architect at Lufthansa, Frankfurt am Main.

I’m a Software Architect that works on getting Revenue Management Systems into the cloud on all levels of abstraction, ranging from coding Big Data Spark applications in Scala to high-level architectural solution design in the cloud.

Stack: on-premise hadoop cluster, spark 2&3, scala, Azure Cloud, R, containerd (with docker.io), shell-scripts, kubernetes, AKS, minikube, terraform, JIRA, gitlab, office365, jenkins, Azure DevOps

January 2019
— September 2019
Big Data & AI Architect at coraixx GmbH & Co. KGaA Development Center in Dresden.

As one of the first four employees, I helped boot-strapping the development operations for the company. This included candidate screening and technical interviews, as well as designing and implementing the early devops pipeline that enabled the developers to write and run code on their own small kubernetes clusters. I prototyped the scripts for creating and destroying those clusters on virtual machines hosted by a small German cloud computing service, and supervised their implementation into the productive development systems.

I worked with an international team and the main office language was English.

Stack: Hetzner cloud, kubernetes, docker, shell-scripts, macOS/linux, python3, nginx, php, redis, rabbitmq, mariadb, gitlab, jenkins

September 2018
— December 2018
Data Scientist
at AIS Automation Dresden GmbH
.

I used machine learning and artificial intelligence for quality control of products and for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of industrial tools. My main project combined computer vision approaches and convolutional neural nets in order to measure quality and detect faults in electro-luminescent images of photovoltaic modules in real-time.

Stack: Azure Cloud, tensorflow-1.6, python3, shell-scripts, Win10/linux, mariadb, jupyter
