About me

Beni Gartenmann After graduating from high school with a specialization in IT and completing a one-year internship at a software company, where I trained to become an application engineer, I worked as a web developer for another full year. In summer 2011 I started studying for a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Software Engineering, but after one year I left the university because I realized that the scientific way to software development was not my way. Instead I joined my father's the company, Gartenmann Software AG, as a software developer.

During three-and-a-half years I worked on a complete rewrite of one of the software products with an amazing team. I transitioned from being a software developer to becoming the lead project manager and lead designer of the project.
During these years I grew professionally, learned a lot about providing benefits for businesses through software and personally understood what I am most passionate about.

This has lead me to where I am now.
As an independent designer and developer I want to enable businesses to gain productivity through design and software.

Besides my job in the computer science industry I am a committed volunteer at the aid organisation GOA Switzerland to enable a better future for orphans and street children in Kenya. Through this work, it became my desire to pass on my experience and knowledge to other non-profit organisations, which is why I am investing part of my work time in empowering aid organisations.

Canoe and river As an attempt to have a healthy work-life-balance I am often found on the various waters of Switzerland, pursuing my passion of canoeing. During the summer season I occasionally work as a freelance canoe-guide for Trango, check out their website at http://www.trango.ch
