About me & my job
My name is Stefan Zeidler, I am 39 years old, a Berlin native and Product Manager for the app for “We Park”. We are currently preparing a completely new development of our app, which will include everything that customers have requested. This will considerably improve the user experience of our service.
About Berlin traffic
I cycle to work every morning, about half an hour, even in the depths of winter. My route takes me through Brandenburg Gate, past the splendid buildings along Unter den Linden and past Alexanderplatz. It is interesting to see the latest mobility gadgets – bike, scooter, and car-sharing – along the way. But I also sense the competition in the streets and see the stress that drivers, pedestrians and cyclists are exposed to. At We, as part of Volkswagen we are contributing to making roads more attractive for all users – together with cities and local authorities, but also with users.
About my motivation
Our former office building, the Johannishof, used to be the GDR Ministerial Council’s guest house. The new rooms are bright, generously sized, and modern. I sit on the sixth floor with my team and have a view of a lot of green, but also of the urban backdrop of skyscrapers around. The concept of the campus – with interaction zones, concentration areas as well as lounge and play areas – reflects our connection with the city and our transparency, curiosity, and openness.
