Work Experience

Producing and distributing self designed clothing together with 2 colleagues.
It started as an idea in our circle of friends but soon turned to be a local "in" business. My contribution was mainly transforming our values of solidarity, open-heartedness and nature conservation into printdesigns and maintaining our online shop. After 2 years the project was shelved because of a lack of time for all of us. Still I review my experiences in management and administration very proudly.

Working student position alongside my studies.
As e commerce specialist in our team I supervised and executed several projects, the relaunch of bagsnboxes.com being the biggest of them.
My main job there was to simplify complex product configuration flows and designing an appealing interface onto it. Small implementations to integrate the online shop into business pipelines were done by me as well.
As my first employment in this branch an important steppingstone.
