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 fascinated 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 to lead our reseller subsidiary.
Over the years, I have steadily expanded my skills and responsibilities and shifted my focus from pure tech 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. I partner with two board members to set our strategic direction, and to drive our growth.
Work is more than just a job for me. As a leader, 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 on LinkedIn or Twitter. I look forward to speaking with you!
