Payments & Product Management


After many years in online payments  – and product management in more recent years –  I stepped into a freelance consulting role in December 2016.


With a broad mix of in-depth technical and domain knowledge, a bag full of methodology and strategic and pragmatic thinking, I can help small and large companies on many topics around payments and product management.


Living in Hamburg by choice, I’m looking back at national and international places to work, including Cologne, Berlin, Dublin and New York.


Outside of business hours, you may run across me taking photos for my side business Hamburg Pixx.


I had different and unique perspectives on payments: Working at PSPs and working on payments for merchants. I was in touch with local markets and managed global, crossborder payments. I've been with startups size 30 and as well with 60K+ corporations.

How i can help you - product management related

My approach to product management is heavily influenced by agile development. Iterate on ideas and features, then measure and iterate again. As a product manager giving context to all stakeholders is key, and especially to the engineers. When everyone knows what to build and why, friction get reduced and magic happens.
