* Create and maintain feature roadmaps for the iOS, Android and Mobile Web Apps, which I regularly shared and discussed with upper management.
* Implement a proper UX process, including wireframing, prototyping and user testing, which enabled us to properly align features with stakeholders from other departments (backend, marketing, etc.) and minimize redundant work.
* Work with the data team to clearly visualize our funnels and be able to report progress on our goals and metrics to upper management.
* Set up an A/B testing process via Google to continuously optimize our features to the smallest details.
* Coordinate features implemented on our Mobile platforms with the Head of Product, who back then was solely responsible for the Web/Desktop roadmap

Über mich

I have a diverse and rich history in leading major projects and serving in consultancy roles across the technology industry. I led the acclaimed 'EVERSLAUGHT Invasion' VR game project, a groundbreaking venture that was made possible through a partnership with Meta. This project not only enhanced my portfolio but also honed my leadership skills and solidified my understanding of the VR landscape.

In addition to my work in the gaming sector, I have offered strategic insights as a Consultant on a series of software projects for BP. My contributions in these projects varied from broad strategic guidance to detailed technical advice, always focusing on efficiency, innovation, and the effective use of technology.

Furthermore, I served as a Technical Consultant at ProSiebenSat1, one of Germany's leading media companies. This role allowed me to leverage my technical expertise and problem-solving skills in a dynamic and challenging media environment. It was here where I further fortified my industry expertise, successfully guiding the company through numerous complex technical initiatives.

I also served as the Head of Mobile at Tajawal LLC in Dubai (now renamed to Seera Group), an online travel company with over 1000+ employees. There, I spearheaded significant enhancements to their iOS and Android apps and improved their mobile web presence using the latest technologies. Additionally, I played a key role in integrating Agile processes throughout the organization.

In the past I was focussed on iOS development, working with both Objective-C and Swift. I have a strong track record in implementing customer projects from A-Z, both on-site and remotely.

With these experiences, I bring a unique combination of technical proficiency, strategic thinking, and leadership to any team or project I am part of. Over 15 years of experience directing diverse software teams to success has equipped me with the knowledge and drive to tackle new challenges head-on.
