Name: Sebastian Schumann
Profession: Service Platform Development Expert, Slovak Telekom
Location: Bratislava, Slovakia
I am a 31-year-old telecommunications professional, who is currently enjoying life and work in Bratislava, Slovakia.
I was born and grew up in Germany in a small village called Jößnitz (located near Plauen in the Vogtland area in Saxony). After I finished twelve years of high school at the Lessing-Gymnasium in Plauen, I worked in a nearby hospital for a year of community service.
With the age of 19 I started my studies in the area of telecommunications and computer sciences at the private university of Deutsche Telekom in Leipzig, Germany (Hochschule für Telekommunikation). My university education brought me to Bratislava, Slovakia. I started to work in Slovak Telekom as a student in 2006, and am a regular employee since October 2007. At the same time I did also start my doctoral studies at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. My research is about next-generation identity management for service personalization.
I embrace a multi-national life in private and business. I have a lovely Bulgarian wife; we live in Bratislava and enjoy to meet, discuss, and hang out with the international community there. I have been engaged in international projects and teams my entire career.
I occasionally hold lectures at universities, give presentations on conferences, or speak/contribute to events that deal with innovative topics around communication services and innovative operator approaches.
