About Me

I am passionate about apps and digital services that provide value and joy-of use.

As a UX designer and project manager I have several years of experience in both fast-paced agency environment and corporate sector. I expanded my expertise into Product Management in the last year.
I worked on both B2B and B2C projects in various areas, including engineering, the financial sector, smart home and tourism. I care about balancing business goals and user needs while, considering technical feasibility. As a certified Scrum Master I worked in an agile environment on complex software development projects in multi-discipline teams. I think analytic when gathering requirements and creative when finding solutions – while constantly striving for the best result.

Testimonials

Adam Giles

Technium eCommerce

Pirmin was an essential part of my Product & Design Team - a consummate UI/UX professional with the talent to expand into product management. Given a loosely defined problem statement I could trust him to investigate the issue with the development team and the relevant external stakeholders; then document the existing state and recommend an optimal end-state-solution. I'd welcome the chance to work with him again.

Audrius Bernotas

Titan FX

I have worked with Pirmin on the software design and development projects and was very happy as a client. His genuine care for the UX/UI of the product and analytical mindset helped bringing good ideas to the table and pushing them to realization.

Tino Schulze

melting elements

Pirmin possesses great expertise and was able to quickly familiarize himself with his new areas of responsibility. He successfully applied his technically sound skills in combination with his targeted creativity and conceptual understanding to various projects. Pirmin was a reliable employee that completed tasks in a timely manner. Even in times of heavy workloads and time pressure he demonstrated diligence. He understood how to prioritize his tasks accordingly and always showed a strong sense of responsibility and personal commitment. I unreservedly recommend Pirmin.

Uta Virkus

Innogy SE

One of my professional highlights in the past year was getting to know and working together with Pirmin in an agile app project. The accuracy and reliability of his approach in our very time critical project was impressive. At first we had doubts to be able to keep the time and budget framework but thanks to his commitment and determination in his project management we managed it successfully. Pirmin has a very good eye for good design and knows the right way to translate it into great UI and programming.
