Hagen Hübel

With over 30 years of experience in software development, I bring a wealth of knowledge from various sectors, including FinTech, Blockchain, and formerly eCommerce. My journey in this field began around 1989 when I was 14, and by the age of 15, I had already sold my first app.

Over the years, I've transitioned into leadership roles, with a well-rounded decade serving as a Chief Technology Officer (CTO). In addition to technical expertise, I possess extensive experience in start-up environments, demonstrating my entrepreneurial acumen by co-founding several fintech and ed-tech startups, one of which has successfully exited. My background positions me uniquely at the intersection of deep technical understanding and business leadership, specializing particularly in the ever-evolving landscapes of FinTech and Blockchain.

My passion for backend development and SmartContracts is demonstrated by my active contributions to OpenSource projects and my six-year tenure in the Blockchain industry. This is complemented by five years of experience in mobile development.

In previous roles as a team and developer lead, I honed my abilities to build, inspire, and drive high-performing teams. In addition to my technical skills, I have engaged directly with lawyers on issues of compliance and European regulation within the blockchain and financial sectors, emphasizing my comprehensive understanding of this industry's legal framework.

My career has been characterized by continual learning, collaboration, and an unwavering commitment to innovation.
