about me | talks and writings | honors

I am a Software Engineer from Berlin with a passion for trust, safety and security. I am currently working in the moderation team of Amazons trust org, working on manual and automatic moderation systems to make sure Amazon customers worldwide have a safe & secure experience.
Previously I worked at eBay in the Trust & Safety team of eBay Classifieds Germany (eBay Kleinanzeigen), fighting against policy violations and fraud.
Additionally, application security is one of my big interests and I was heading a local security guild at eBay and was appointed 'eBay Classifieds Group Security Champion'.
I am experienced with large distributed systems, building data-driven (micro) services with technologies such as Spring, Kafka, Kafka Streams, Cassandra & the AWS SaaS Stack, deploying these services and making sure operational functionality within needed KPIs.
I graduated with a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Freie-Universität-Berlin and am a former athlete in the first national league of ballroom dancing and former spokesman of my club's youth, representing approx. 150 dancers to the club executive board and regional federation.
