Story of the Month – our CTO, Dominik Fries

Story of the Month – our CTO, Dominik Fries

Story Time

Meet Dominik, CTO and Partner of Thinkport GmbH.

He is been with Thinkport since its beginnings and has helped to build it the way we know today.

His team colleagues do not describe him as a typical CTO. Besides from being visionary and creative, they portray him as a down-to-earth guy who is relaxing to work with, applaudable both at human and technical level and a person which always puts emphasis on problem-solving and team dynamics. Dominik himself describes his journey with Thinkport as inspiring, thrilling and also challenging at times. The biggest learning is sticking to your plan, daring to take on great challenges, helping others succeed, as well as taking ownership of problems.

What many of you do not know about him? He is a devoted mountain biker, has practised different martial arts, loves metal music and likes to spend most of his free time in the forest or up in the mountains.

We are glad to have such a person in our company
Dominik Fries! We thank you for the great journey so far and look forward to further achieving success and growing, together!

Appreciation and gratitude

We took some time this week to express our appreciation and gratitude to all those working tirelessly to provide us basic necessities in order to prevent and combat the coronavirus crisis, including public servants, health, sanitation, and civil supply workers and security personnel.

You are the real heroes! We applaud you!

March 23, 2020

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?" - Martin Luther King, Jr.

With such thoughts, two members of our team, Keith Schuijlenburg and Philipp D’ Angelo, together with Fabian Bäuerlein, participated in the hackathon of the German government #WirvsVirus and worked tirelessly over the weekend to find creative solutions which combat the crisis caused by the Coronavirus. Their solution? Bringing people together! They created the platform „wir-unterstuetzen.com” for all businesses that are economically suffering because of the crisis. Businesses can register on the platform to receive donations from the users and use digital training to enable them to continue offering their products and services. This is the first version of the platform and they will continue to further optimize it and make it easier for everyone to use. What do you think? The whole team thanks you for your commitment.

We are extremely proud of your work!!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day!

08.03.2020

To women all over the world: make it about yourself and your dreams!

“I know what it’s like to be a woman in Tech. When I started my first job in Argentina, I was the only woman in my team. I was the first one to enter the office and the last one to leave it. I felt the pressure of succeeding for all my fellow women. But it wasn’t all easy. In such a men-oriented company, bullying and sexism were part of the company’s toxic culture. I had a hard time but speaking up and facing the issues, instead of just leaving was the right decision. I have since moved on and that experience made me even more committed to fight injustice in the workplace. More women in the workplace make an organization more diverse, dynamic and contribute to its long-term success. I often face the question: How can you code? It is not that hard. Like for any other job, you have to be open to learn new things, stay committed and keep practicing. Now I have started my first tech job in Europe, I love it and I plan to stay! To women all over the world: make it about yourself and your dreams! 

Happy International Women’s Day!”
