This work grew out of Stephan’s previous management and engineering roles within Pivotal Labs, Pivotal’s software consulting group. Prior to joining Pivotal, Stephan moved to the United States from Germany where he worked as a software engineer for xing. He has a doctorate in information systems from the University of Münster in Germany.
