👋 Hi there, I'm Martin, and I know things about mobile apps.

My career started as a web developer in a big international EMS company. Later, I quit my job to focus on my computer sciences 🤓 and business administration 👔 degrees and became a freelancer in 2004.

In 2008 my focus switched to mobile software product development 📱, leading to my company topmind GmbH.

Since then, I have enjoyed working in leading technical and product/project/team management roles of awarded mobile apps and SDKs like MindMeister, iTranslate, iTranslate Converse, iTranslate Lingo, Skiline, femSense, Jungfrau Region, myZillertal, bitmovin Player and more.

Fast forward to 2021: With 17 years of experience in freelancing and leading software projects, I switched from mobile agency business to product development.
