Why Am I Not Eligible... Is it my Age? Is it my German/EU Citizenship?


Languages : English – German – Spanish

EU Citizen / Born in Hamburg – Germany Dec 04 1974

With quality management comply with the standards, improve business performance of all activities of the organization and demonstrate the achievement of objectives. 

To be a good analyst one must be able to multi-task, able to communicate with all levels (management, technical and functional). Structured, but flexible enough to change without notice. I do my best to create a dynamic environment and, if possible, to promote a sound understanding of formal methods and agile. 

I'm always open to different approaches when working with others, because I firmly believe in the ability to use a method of "cascade" to create a learning environment. This is essential for me.

Quality Management satisfies stakeholders & improves the business performance of all organizational activities. Quality Assurance demonstrates the achievement of quality objectives.

My core skills are:

 Well developed analytical skills.

 Strong problem solving/decision making skills.

 Client-focused attitude with excellent communication skills.

 Excelent sence of urgency necessary to meet goals, objectives and deadlines.

 Committed team player with positive attitude.

 Excellent interpersonal and human relations skills.

 Ability to work with people of varied technical backgrounds and management levels.

 Ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical personnel.

 Ability to clearly communicate and share solutions with fellow team members.

 Superior cross-matrix management skills.

 Business integration skills.

 Ability to conduct extensive analytics research

 Self motivated and willing to take initiative to get things done!

 Working proficiency of standard and associated project productivity.
