Career

My career began at Siemens AG in September 2008 with an apprenticeship as an IT system electronics technician.

From 2011 to 2017, I worked at Siemens in the assembly of traffic technology. I then worked as a service technician for light signalling systems until April 2019. Since May 2019, I have been working as a service technician in the traffic computer.

In spring 2015 I started a part-time study at the FOM in Cologne for a Bachelor of Science - Business Informatics. I successfully completed my studies on 29 March 2019.

I am currently employed by Siemens Mobility GmbH. Through the future Carve-Out, I will be working at Yunex Traffic - A Siemens Business.

Why program?

As far as I can look back, I am interested in computers. When you think about how this has changed the world - in my opinion, it's just fascinating. We are all connected by bits & bytes.

At the age of 11, I was happy when my father (Werner Rüdiger Schramm) let me on his notebook and clicked around rather wildly or changed some settings. Due to the early death of my father, I already had a notebook at the age of 12. The fact that my mother (Astrid Karin Schramm) likes to read and that it was still more common at the time to buy books in retail, I was often dragged along as a child. I've never really been interested in books, except for those in the computer department. My mother recognized this and supported my interest (probably so that I could read more). The result of the whole story: I learned programming.

My first application followed at the age of 13, at that time still a vocabulary trainer for friends and me. This was followed by websites and other small applications that expanded my knowledge and enjoyment of programming. At the age of 16, I created a website for our graduation class at the time so that we could stay in touch - but due to the growth of the social media platforms, this website could later be taken offline.

At the age of 28, I signed up to a small business to publish my apps and websites.
