Hi, I’m Max.

Together with my partner Martha I run konsens, which is a free online group decision tool. It can reduce the amount of necessary conversations in group chats when trying to make a decision with family or friends. But our main goal is to introduce more democratic decision-making into organisations.

I’m a partner at Mein Grundeinkommen like everyone else working there. We are a democratically organized association researching the benefits and feasability of a universal basic income. I’m working in the role of a full-stack developer and am currently looking into adding one or two more roles. My main focus is implementing online questionnaires and user flows for the researchers we work with.

From 2017 to 2022 I was the head of development at diesdas.digital, hired, supported and mentored our developers, counseled the company’s founders in various decisions and helped our clients to get the best technical solution for their problem.

Between 2015 and 2017 I lived and worked in London at Improbable and back then MIT Technology Review listed them twice as one of the smartest companies in the world. While the technology itself is impressive and working on its user interface during my time there was a great challenge, I hate to see it being used for powering the metaverse or in military operations.

From 2013 to 2015 I worked as a software developer at Edenspiekermann in Berlin, which was after my studies of Computer Science and Media at the Stuttgart Media University, where I got my Bachelor of Science degree.

I’m also politically active fighting the climate crisis and try to raise awareness of how to communicate the progressive perspective in political debates. Whenever there’s time left I make electronic music, take analog photos, do a bit of fitness at home and I enjoy writing and publishing thoughts about various topics on the web.
