Head of Portals & Processes

Your Career at Fichtner

We are looking for people with energy! Become part of an engineering and consulting company with a successful history stretching back more than 100 years. In the Fichtner Group, you can expect a unique combination of a long-term oriented family business coupled with diversity, dynamism and flat hierarchies.


After school, I first decided to do a voluntary social year before going on to study surveying and geoinformatics in Stuttgart. When looking for exciting companies to spend my internship semester with, I came across Fichtner IT Consulting GmbH (FIT for short). I liked it there so much that I’ve just stayed there ever since, beginning my professional career as a software engineer straight after graduating.

During my first years at FIT, I initially worked in the field of GIS (Geographic Information Systems). These are applications for the acquisition, analysis and visualization of spatial data such as power and rail networks or any other geographically related information.
Implementing complex, specialist functionalities for major clients from the railway industry was my everyday work as a software developer for over three years and a perfect match for my studies.

I started my current position as Head of Portals & Processes at the beginning of 2020 and have been primarily working as an IT project manager since then. In my team, our target group is clearly the energy industry, focusing on the electricity sector. Together we develop innovative and future-oriented software solutions for and with our clients, always based on modern technology stacks. Particularly noteworthy is the “SNAP” application, which solves one of the most urgent requirements for grid operators at the moment, namely fast grid connection tests.

In addition to being involved in numerous commercial projects, I’ve also been working a lot for several years in the field of government-funded research projects. In the flexQgrid project, we worked with various partners from industry and research to study and test the grid of the future under real-world conditions for a year and a half in a field test conducted in a municipality in the Black Forest. 

As FIT, we were responsible for the orderly integration of all software systems involved, handled the process-related management of the various components and players, and launched our Fichtner EDDIE – an innovative portfolio of solutions for meeting the challenges facing energy systems of the future.
Due to its core competence of being able to optimally handle energy data from digitized energy systems, EDDIE can be understood, in simple terms, as a central data hub with which we want to make a technological contribution to the data-based, smart world of tomorrow.
