My name is Peter Buhrmann and I’m Managing Director of ThoughtWorks Germany. I’ve been in the software industry for over 25 years and wrote my first code at the age of 15 when I programmed an HP 15C. Since then, I’ve been interested in technology and have worked in both custom software development and IT consulting. With growing professional experience, my responsibilities gravitated towards management: in sales, as a delivery manager and then as a business unit leader. In 2012, ThoughtWorks Germany came to my attention. I was excited about the people at ThoughtWorks and their passion for great software. As a Managing Director, I’m focused on supporting our clients' ambitions missions and on creating an environment that makes us a destination employer for the best talent in the market.
Since joining ThoughtWorks, my passion for technology and software has been revitalized and I've started programming again. Not sure if I can compete with our Grads, but I’m working on it. If I’m not in front of my computer (responding to my mails to keep my zero inbox), I really enjoy being outdoors: on the mountains, on the sea, during winter, during summer or simply anywhere at anytime.
