I worked for 4 years in the IT department of ETA (the main manufacturing division of the Swatch Group) as an IT apprentice and for an additional 2 years as an entry-level Software Developer. Because we had very small team to develop new applications, I mostly worked on my own and also took up responsible tasks early on.
We almost exclusively built our solutions on top of Microsoft products such as Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation, ASP.NET Web Forms and MS SQL Server including Integration and Reporting Services. I often managed these projects from their initialisation all the way to the deployment and training of the end users. Besides, I also developed a number of small automation tools with PowerShell.
Since August 2016 I work in the IT directorate of the Solothurner Spitäler as an Application Manager. I am mainly involved in configuring and maintaining the Clinical Information System as well as analysing data and creating reports for the clinical decision makers and customising the IT Incident, Service and Financial Management System. I am also supporting the Deputy CIO in managing ongoing projects and the specific requirements of the psychiatric clinic.
At the same time, I am studying to attain my master's degree. As part of my specialisation projects and Master's Thesis, I design and implement a Key Performance Indicator system tailored to the Solothurner Spitäler's IT directorate.
For six months in 2018, I worked an average of one day per week for Zazuko, an owner-managed consulting company for Semantic Web and related technologies. During a phase of expansion, I was involved in the development of RDF data processing pipelines and user interfaces.
