Marius Wilms

With 15+ years experience in software engineering in total, and 6+ years in management I'm adding meaningful contributions within a larger context and help others to exceed their own expectations.

As an engineering leader and passionate open source engineer I enjoy to collaborate with people all around the world. I'm convinced how we create software today can still be improved. I support a bottom-up culture where we work in an atmosphere of mutual respect and where teams resonate well with the organization's wider mission.

I'm convinced that major challenges can only be solved together and in well-functioning relationships. The people I lead or report to can rely on me in all situations. Open and honest communication is especially important to me.

“We are creating technologies - then we are the technologies: Your heart is not LIKE a pump, your heart IS a pump. It’s not like your brain is like a computer, it is a computer. Until the next thing comes along: Now you’re a neural net or now you’re an information system.”

John Brockmann in an interview with Lutz Dammbeck, Das Netz, 2004
