How it all started

My journey in the tech world began with a humble role as a Helpdesk specialist of infotainments and mobile applications at Lighthouse Marketing Solutions, where I provided invaluable support to Škoda owners navigating the complexities of vehicle connectivity. But my ambitions knew no bounds. I returned to university to refine my skills, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Managerial Informatics from the Technical University of Liberec.

Pioneering the Digital Frontier

During my academic pursuits, I ventured into the realm of innovation as a trainee at Škoda Auto Digilab. Here, I delved deep into the future, conducting research for digital products and collecting data for AI deep learning models. My passion for mobile technology led me to become a mobile application tester at Škoda, where I gained hands-on experience in quality assurance.

From Helpdesk Specialist to Area Product Owner

As I was perfecting my skills, I transitioned into the role of IT analyst, contributing to the development of the production application Škoda Connect. With hard work and dedication, I eventually ascended to the position of Area Product Owner, overseeing multiple SCRUM teams and spearheading the evolution of the MyŠkoda mobile application.
