My name is Tobias, and I was born in 1982 in the lovely city of Munich, Germany. Already at a young age, history, natural sciences, and computers interested me. In 1996 my interest in programming ignited, and I implemented and managed smaller hobby projects.
At Siemens, I later learned the basics as a software engineer. With a detour to the German Military from 2004 to 2008 to support the introduction of SAP, I started at united-domains AG in 2008.
Over the years, I have steadily expanded my skills and responsibilities and shifted my focus more towards product management.
In 2011 I joined the Executive Committee, and since 2018 I have been part of the Board of Management, where I head technology and product management. The board consists of two co-founders and myself.
Work is more than just a job for me. I love to empower and support my team to develop great products. Helping our customers to realize their ideas makes me happy.
Apart from that, I am an active member of the domain name industry:
Furthermore, I am an author of 9 IETF Internet-Drafts and 10+ 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, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, walking, and learning.
If you have any questions that I can help with, please feel free to reach out here on LinkedIn or via Twitter. I look forward to speaking with you!
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.
