Katja in a few words

Product expert with 14 years of professional experience in developing, managing and launching digital products for national and international companies, both in consulting and on client side.

I have launched and managed a wide range of online products such as Sky Go, Snap by Sky, Sky Ticket as well as Joyn’s premium subscription product which recently launched in November last year. By doing so, I have led a variety of multi-national product, service and customer experience initiatives in the roles of either product or project manager.

With my experience in working for start-ups as well as big corporations – both in classic waterfall and agile projects – as well as my certifications as Product Owner and Scrum Master, I am able to work in any environment. I dispose of profound knowledge in product concept development, business requirements definition and launch management as well as product strategy and roadmap planning. By always putting the customer first and facts before ego I am taking informed decisions based on data and insights only. Thus, my focus is on creating outcome and value that measurably drive a change in customer behavior. In addition to this, I feel very comfortable in managing cross-functional and international teams within product or feature development projects and have several years of leadership experience.

In me you will find a dedicated, reliable, sociable and empathic team player with excellent organizational, interpersonal and communication skills who is not afraid of going the extra mile and feels comfortable in working in fast-moving environments and in managing any kind of stakeholders by speaking the language of management, tech teams and subject matter experts.
