About

Huhu! My name is Jan-Philip.

A little bit about me.

I am passionate about science. I am an information technology enthusiast. I love open-source software development, photography, and music.

I spent ten years in academia: after studying physics at Universität Würzburg, I did my PhD work in the field of computational physics/biophysics/immunology as part of the Dresden International PhD Program, kindly supported with a doctoral scholarship by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes as well as by the DFG Transregio 67.

After that I spent four years working at D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere) where I led the design, implementation, and maintenance of integral components and architectural concepts for our product DC/OS. At D2iQ I have also been a people manager, product owner, and founding member of what we called our “Technical Architecture Group”. DC/OS spans many machines within a network, and makes it easy to develop and deploy massive distributed applications. With DC/OS, we enabled a number of Fortune 50 companies including banks and telcos as well as government agencies to deploy containerized applications at scale, securely.

Currently, I am working on something new.
