Timo Salm is based out of Stuttgart in the southwest of Germany and started to work for Pivotal as a Platform Architect in 2019.
As a consequence of the Pivotal acquisition, Timo joined VMware in 2020 and is now in the role of the first VMware Tanzu Solutions Engineer for Developer Experience in EMEA with a focus on VMware Tanzu Application Platform and our commercial Spring products. In this role, he’s responsible for educating customers on the value, vision, and strategy of these products, and ensuring that they succeed by working closely on different levels of abstractions of modern applications and modern infrastructure. An essential part of his role is also continuously learning through experimenting hands-on with new tools and sharing the outcomes with his colleagues, the customers, and the community, and evangelizing to communities via e.g. social media, articles, and conferences.
Before Timo joined Pivotal, he worked for more than seven years for consulting firms in the automotive industry as a software architect and full-stack developer in projects for customer-facing products. He has extensive experience in software architectures and development using e.g. Spring, Angular, and Swift(iOS), but also with modern infrastructure.
