Delivery lead for Search and Recommendation at Zalando. Responsible for technical delivery of two teams of about ten people each. Zalando follows the principles of radical agility which emphasize strong independent teams with a clear purpose, technical mastery, and my task is to help the team as good as I can in the highly agile environment that Zalando is. I have 10+ years background as a researcher in machine learning, both on developing new learning methods and various application areas. I also had a startup-on-the-side on real-time data analysis with applications in social media analysis and customer related event data. I also frequently talk at conferences on data science, scalable machine learning, and all the rest.
