What’s your area of responsibility at SiriusX?

Blockchain Development. The development of smart contracts, apps and websites are among my areas of responsibility. In addition, I am of course constantly involved with the latest market trends and innovations in the blockchain area. In close cooperation with my colleague Daniel Kirchgesner, I always work to accelerate the technical progress of SiriusX.

Why did you choose SiriusX FinTech as your employer?

The vision and the team were clearly the deciding factors!
I was clearly told what tasks I would have to take on here and what opportunities I would have. To realize myself in my work is very important to me.

It is simply a lot of fun to be allowed to help here, to build up such a young company from the very beginning.

Short Introduction:

I am Daniel Kirchgesner, 22 years old and software developer at SiriusX FinTech. For me it was a big and uncertain step after completing my Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering at Heilbronn University not to take the usual step of selecting a large company that had proven itself for many years and to gain professional experience with it. Instead, I decided to take this opportunity here, which is why I’m doing this interview now. My long-time buddy Peter Metzler contacted me over a year ago with the idea for SiriusX, which he developed together with Patrick Scheiter, and asked me for technical support. …

Short introduction and task at SiriusX

My name is Peter Metzler (22 y.) Together with my esteemed colleague Patrick Scheiter, I started the SiriusX FinTech project last year. From the very beginning it was clear to us that as equal partners we naturally make the most important decisions for the whole company together, but each of us also specializes in one area within the company. My work in the financial services sector as a banker provided me with a very good basis for my role as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). I am responsible for managing the company’s funds, accounting and financial planning.

How do you rate the teamwork?

The work processes run absolutely smoothly. Together with Patrick Scheiter, we have managed to put together a competent and extremely committed team. Each member is responsible for a specific area and has already gained experience in his field through his previous career or education. But also character-wise I can only lose good about the individual team members. Each individual works purposefully, responsibly and wants to advance the company, which is why we, as managing directors, hold our employees in extreme esteem. Everyone here is incredibly important to successfully continue on the path we have already paved! …
