Solution Owner: Linchpin


Hi! I am Katja Weingärtner, the solution owner for Linchpin, the best social intranet in the world. At //SEIBERT/MEDIA, a solution owner is basically a product manager. Together with my product owner colleagues, I work passionately to improve and extend our product, which has grown tremendously over the past few years, into an even more powerful solution.

Coming from a design background, I have developed an enthusiasm for software and technology as well as for agile corporate culture at //SEIBERT/MEIDIA. Both areas can be found in Linchpin. Despite continuing towards digitalization, I consistently ask myself: What can we do to help people do their jobs more easily? And how can software help companies establish a respectful and modern work culture?
