With a lot of passion I am leading BigData Republic and our incredible team of talented, critical and conscious individuals. I am proud of our company culture and atmosphere, which I would define more as a friendship than as a business relationship. I also greatly appreciate our particular mix of technical expertise and soft skills. This combination is what drew me to BigData Republic in the first place, and it keeps defining our company throughout the years. Coming from a technical background myself, I have worked on hands-on data science and big data projects for many years. My biggest fascination are problems that require sophisticated techniques that have been developed in the fields of parallel processing, machine learning and scalable infrastructure over the past decades. It is great to have talented people around me that share this passion for technology and to keep on learning and growing together.
