My name is Tobias, and I was born in 1982 in the lovely city of Munich, Germany.
Since 2008 I have been working for united-domains AG in multiple senior positions, and since 2018 I have been the board member responsible for technology, product development, strategic partnerships, and industry engagement.
The essential part of my role as CTO is to empower and to support my team to build great new products. Along with that it includes to further improve and to transform our technology stack, to streamline our business processes, to develop our IT and product strategy and roadmaps, to engage with our 200+ worldwide partners and suppliers, to represent our interests, to contribute to industry committees to develop best practices, and to represent united-domains at conferences worldwide.
Through the years I managed to establish a broad network and to build up substantial expertise, especially on product and business development. I like to deal with all kind of things, and I am not shy away from getting my own hands dirty.
Apart from that, I was and am an active member of the community:
Furthermore, I am an author of some IETF Internet-Drafts and a few articles on CircleID, Medium and Linkedin Pulse.
I am a supporting member of Amnesty International, the German Cancer Aid, Caritas, the German Redcross, WWF, and Unicef.
In my spare time, my pleasures include spending time with my family, reading, going for walks, playing games or doing further studies.
These are recent drafts and documents that I worked on at IETF.
These are recent articles that I wrote about IT, Hosting, Domain Names, and other stuff.
Domain Name Basics is a series of presentations meant to be an overview and training material for newcomers in the domain name industry. These materials are not intended to be exhaustive.
An overview of articles, press releases, and media in which I was mentioned. Nothing special, just a collection.
