Hi, I’m Felix. Thanks for visiting my site.
I studied IT-Systems Engineering at the Hasso-Plattner-Institute (HPI) in Potsdam, Germany. After brief stints in consulting and product management, I am back in software engineering. Currently, I work as a Software Engineer at Celonis, and in my free time I spend a lot of time with Rust. You can also find me on LinkedIn.
Here is a short version of my CV, peppered with keywords on technologies I used and duties I carried out during that time.
04/2022 - now - Senior Security Engineer @ Celonis SE
Veracode, Asset Inventory, Python, AWS
08/2020 - 04/2022 - Software Engineer @ Celonis SE
Java, Python, Rust, Spring Boot, Microservices, Kubernetes, Docker, Apereo CAS, Angular, Typescript, ArgoCD, SSO, OIDC, SAML
10/2019 - 08/2020 - Product Manager @ Celonis SE
Scrum, Refinements, Retrospectives, Enablements, Stakeholder Management, Roadmaps
04/2018 - 09/2018 - Master’s Project @ HPI
React, SAP HANA, BPMN, Interviewing, Process Mapping
2019 - M.Sc. IT-Systems Engineering @ Hasso-Plattner-Institute
I wrote my thesis on Next-Activity Prediction with Long-Short-Term Memory Recurrent Networks. The topic piqued my interest in process mining and got me in touch with Celonis.
2015 - B.Sc. IT-Systems Engineering @ Hasso-Plattner-Institute
The six semesters here taught me a lot about natural curiousity on technology, the bitcoin hype and the immense value of reliable teammates. I wrote my thesis on Preselecting Job Candidates Through Data Analysis. The topic was nice, and it was a cool confirmation that in the years after, several startups tried out what I had sketched in my thesis. They tried to find good candidates for jobs based on their Github profiles, but I think Github took that business to themselves.
2012 - Abitur @ Paul-von-Denis-Gymnasium
Finishing school and convincing my IT teacher that Python is in fact an object-oriented language. In hindsight I would have loved to replace religion as a subject with financial literacy.
2006 - Four year expat stay @ DSKL
We (family and I) were abroad and I got pretty good at speaking English and imitating Indian accents :D
