Benjamin Becker

Software Architect in Tampere, Finland

Benjamin started his career in the mid 80ies, where he went the classic path from C64 hacking to AMIGA's C coding. Luckily, shortly after that he got introduced to serious development in C++, Java and the later upcoming .NET Framework.
After finishing his Computer Science studies with a M.Sc. in 2002 he took a chance in 2005 to move to Finland.

There, he immediately got hired as a Senior Software Developer/IT Architect at a company providing financial software to banks all over Northern Europe. After three years, he decided to continue his journey with an international key player in the mining industry.

With one foot still standing strong in the area of software development, he led successful projects to establish .NET based applications with the help of his team and external suppliers.

In 2009 he was chosen to be one of the founding members of a new IT department which role includes establishing a common PDM/PLM system world-wide. Apart from that, he is responsible for further global sofware rollouts and the organisation of their ITIL based Application- and Incident Management.

Always willing to tackle new problem areas, he can rely on his optimism, analytical skills and high energy level to get all those things done. His strong communication skills are very useful at work - but sometimes even with drunken rock fans at gigs where he is "pumping" the bass onstage.

In his spare time, he is a father of two kids, playing volleyball and likes to learn about new technologies. That being not enough, he is still wondering if he should not eventually start YASB (Yet Another Software Blog) to share his experience about the oddities in the software development world.
