As project leader on the development of the “We Score” app for the new Golf, Julius Merkel was right in his element: after all, cars and football are his great passions. The 24-year-old also possesses important characteristics, thanks to his hobby, in which he is regularly made the scapegoat.

Julius Merkel, project leader on the development of the “We Score” app, leans against the new Golf GTI Clubsport in the shadow of the Volkswagen Arena.
As a youngster, Julius Merkel was an aspiring goalkeeper. Since then, however, he has taken on a different role on the football pitch.

With great trust comes great responsibility

“When developing the app, I deal with a lot of internal and external departments,” the 24-year-old explains. “The cooperation with all of these has been hugely enjoyable and worked superbly.”

Top fit and always on the ball

“I definitely want to stay in Volkswagen Marketing, and would like to continue to develop the ‘We Score’ app,” says Julius on his professional goals.
In his free time, everyone dances to the tune of his whistle: Julius is a football referee – in his words “a cool challenge”.

“App-lying” himself to a Masters

Test drive in the new Golf GTI Clubsport: Julius takes the 221-kW (300-PS) car for a spin around the Volkswagen Arena.
Special connection: “I definitely want to stay in Volkswagen Marketing and would like to continue to develop the ‘We Score’ app,” says the 24-year-old.
