This is me, Tim Adler.
I'm a technology-enthusiast, project-whisperer and developer.
For more than 15 years, I have been working as a designer, developer and tech-manager. At the moment I'm working as Head of Development / Chief technology officer at Hanse Ventures a startup-incubator in Hamburg.
Since taking the first steps as a developer up until today, where I've been lucky enought to have worked "hands on" and in different areas of management, I've always seen my job as a translator between business and engineering.
Thoughts about my work
Typically a project goes smoothest and is most reliable when everybody is "on the same page". Sadly this is one of the hardest things to achieve in technology-projects. You got developers which are deep down in the bowels of the machine on the one hand and marketing and management on the other, who commonly have customer and market interests at hand.
This can go "off the rails" in a really crazy amount of ways. From producing solutions for non-existing problems to solutions that are not understandable by the end-user and contributes no business-value.
In the past I was lucky to be tasked with organizing technology-projects and supporting top-managers in a lot of different scenarios. I've helped to solve business- and product-problems in classic industries and online environments. I've been a tech-translator to CEOs and boards and lead-developer to software-engineering teams.
Also I have worked in a wide array of functions. Ranging from pure web or UX designer to backend-developer and CEO.
