Hey there, I'm Theo. 

Being an innovative and tech-creative person, I always looked for ways to not just visualise and conceptualise ideas but actually make them become a reality. Besides studying the bachelor's program in "Economics and Management" and subsequently, the master's program in "Information Systems", I decided to teach myself how to write code in my spare time. Software development soon became a fantastic skill to realise ideas and projects. However, in order to keep my naivety towards IT (I firmly believe that naivety can be highly valuable in order to think outside the box) I tried to focus on other parts of IT, as well, leaving programming as personal hobby and a great way to challenge myself once in a while.

My professional medium-term goal is to use my knowledge as software developer and experience as agile Product Owner to convey a product vision, drive growth and guide innovative development teams based on a company’s objectives. 

 

During the last 4+ years I've been working as a Product Owner of an agile mobile app project. In April 2020 I was offered a position as In-house Consultant of a large and pivotal IT project at Deutsche Kreditbank AG.

Master of Science

Information Systems (Wirtschaftsinformatik)

Leopold-Franzens University of Innsbruck

"The goal of the master's program Information Systems is to qualify students for leadership positions in IT and for IT management tasks in companies and organisations. This includes abilities to initiate, control, manage and assess leading and innovative information and communication systems in organizations, thus achieving competitive advantages. Moreover, IT leadership positions require a degree of interdisciplinary knowledge in management, personnel and organization, law, finances and information systems. This interdisciplinary knowledge, together with conceptual and communicative abilities, allows graduates to work at the junction between IT and other internal departments as well as external IT service providers. Graduates acquire the ability to offer qualified analysis of system environments at companies, considering factors such as architecture, process, service and values. This program provides an excellent basis for careers in IT management and business consulting." Source: uibk.ac.at
