Dirk in a few words

Hallo und Danke für Ihr Interesse!

Als ex-"Head of Product Amazon Echo und Alex Deutschland/Österreich" war ich federführend für den initialen Produktlaunch rund um Alexa, Amazon Echo sowie Smart Home Integrationen zuständig. Dies betraf UX/VUI Definition, GTM Strategie, user tests, sowie ein komplexes Stakeholder Management. Teil meiner Aufgabe war dem Amazon International Launch Team Alexa für die Länder Indien, Japan, Australien, UK, Italien, Frankreich, Spanien sowie Kanada beratend tätig zu sein. Zudem habe ich die internationale Alex BI Strategie aufgestellt und umgesetzt.

Im Nachgang meiner Tätigkeit bei Amazon habe ich in der Automobilbranche ein Voice Produkt als Product Owner begleitet, um die Strategie aufzusetzen und das operative Teammanagement übernommen.
