Steffen's Blog

Field Engineer @ Materialize

👋 I’m Steffen. I’m excited about streaming and real-time technologies.

In the past years, I’ve been working in different customer facing roles at startups like Materialize and as a Principal Streaming Architect as part of the Messaging and Streaming team at Amazon Web Services. I like working closely with customers to help them adopt technologies to gain timely insights from and act on their continually changing data.

But my passion for streaming technologies started much earlier, when doing my PhD on Complex Event Processing at the University of Munich. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and speaking at conferences like Flink Forward, Kafka Summit, and AWS re:Invent. I’ve contributed to open source projects like Apache Flink and in my free time, I’m trying to lure our daughters into tech with cute stickers I collect at events.
