This is me!

Hi, my name is Martin Pöhlmann — Software Engineer and Consultant hailing from Munich, Germany.

Born in a small town in the Bavarian forest my digital life begun with my passion for music. Using the popular media player Winamp for listening to music on a daily basis, I became interested in designing and coding interface designs for Winamp. Together with some fellows we created The Skin Consortium — a successful community for interface design and coding. In 2006 I was hired by AOL to develop the next user interface for Winamp.

After finishing high-school in 2007, I made my way to Munich to study computer science at Technische Universität München. My major research and study fields were software engineering, computer vision and human-machine-interaction. During these years I co-founded a mobile music promotion platform called Songpier and worked again for AOL on the Winamp for Android App. After a total of 9 semesters, I obtained the Master Degree in Computer Science in early 2012.

Succeeding my studies, I started working as software engineer and consultant at CQSE. I started in a consulting project for one of our largest customer in the reinsurance sector. Our main focus there is to preserve maintainability of source code and accompany the testing activities of the complete business application portfolio. I led this project till mid 2019 and joined our development team thereafter. I am focusing on integration points of our software intelligence suite suite Teamscale with code collaboration platforms like GitHub or Azure DevOps and the Microsoft ecosystem (e.g. Visual Studio integration, .net Profiling, …) using Java and C#.

Since 2021 I am leading the CQSE IT team. I am responsible for developing and running internal services on our Docker infrastructure, as well as integrating and administrating cloud services (Google Workspace, Atlassian Cloud, …). As ISO I also have to keep an eye on all security relevant aspects of our company.

As antipole to tech I keep myself in shape with running or hiking, (re-)started dancing a few years back and vastly enjoy metal and dark electronic music.
