My name is Martin Seibert. I am passionate about Atlassian Software. I am currently helping to introduce Linchpin, a Confluence-based intranet solution and a SAFe solution called Agile Hive to our customers. I have been working on and in //SEIBERT/MEDIA for our customers and employees since I was 17. I founded the company in 1996 and it now employs about 180 people in Wiesbaden (Germany) and USA. In 2018 we made about 30M US$ in revenues and have been profitable as a company for many years. We offer agile software development and are one of the five biggest Atlassian partners worldwide.
It took me many years to understand that only teams can be successful. But that was years ago. Now, I want everyone to understand and spread the word that teams are the things that rock. Be it in your own company or when looking at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, it's always teams that "rock'n'roll" with software.
I am 40 and love to participate in our weekly company soccer team and practice yoga regularly. I used to intensively play chess and volleyball and am still interested in these today. I live with my family including kids and grandma in a suburb of Wiesbaden, Germany.
I connect people to the possibilities and the joy of technology.
My life's mission is to ignite joy and interest for internet technology in people. I am in contact with a lot of people who still think, that technology is a neglectable element and who try to avoid it. I want to show to all people that technology can help their lifes and their causes significantly. I want them to want to get in contact and learn to use and configure software. This fits well into the mission of our company: Helping teams collaborate with software. Or a little sloppy: Kickass software, rock'n'roll teams. Those are the topics that I focus on currently:
Intranets for big corporations
Linchpin is our intranet solution based on Atlassian Confluence. In 2020 I published a book entitled "Das Social Intranet: Zusammenarbeit fördern und Kommunikation stärken – mit Social Intranets mobil und in der Cloud wirksam sein". (Available in german only)
What do you expect from an intranet? What software do you use? How do you compare these software systems? What is your company culture around collaboration? How does your company feel about storing company knowledge in the "cloud"?
Software development with Atlassian tools
We are able to install Atlassian software such as Confluence, Jira, Stash, and Bamboo for you in a standardized environment and fully integrate it in your systems for a fraction of the time and effort.
What software tools do you use for software development at this point? What role does Atlassian software play already? Is all your Atlassian software connected and integrated in your daily processes? Are you interested in checking out a sample of the whole Atlassian stack including sample data all connected together?
Atlassian customers and partners
We are one of the five biggest Atlassian partners worldwide. But we do not want to grow through adding more staff. That's why my goal for this year is to partner with other Atlassian experts, agencies, agile coaches and consultants.
Do you hear a lot about Atlassian solutions and want to participate? Do you want to deploy tested and proven solutions and methods quickly and reliably? Do you want to use our documentation and processes for your own Atlassian projects? Do you believe more in growing the pie together than taking away market share from others as a strategy?
Google Cloud & G Suite
We started to offer professional services for enterprises in 2017. I am searching for prospects, existing customers and partners to learn and share experiences.
What do you think of the Google offering for companies? What's your experiences? Which office solution is deployed in your team? Why and what do you like / dislike about it? Which services can we offer to suit your needs or wishes?
If you want to talk to me about any of the questions and topics above, feel free to contact me directly via email, chat or schedule a call. This is what I want to spend my time on.
Requests for keynotes and presentations
I am often asked to give a presentation about our corporate culture as the "managing director" and describe how we have moved from a patriarchal leadership model towards self-organization in agile teams. The topic interests me greatly and I like to share my knowledge and expertise. However, I do this only under certain conditions: More information about booking Martin Seibert for a keynote or presentation.

Gender neutrality and diversity
In my roles, I want to stand up for equal rights for men and women and respect diversity both in our company and externally. This is not so simple when coming from the German language where norms have not yet been established. I currently do not include additions of "(m/f)" or "(m/f/n)" in my texts, even if I find the thought behind this practice understandable. I find it disturbs the reading flow and I am also often unable to write this way consistently. If you only do it erratically in two of the seventeen required places, there is a high risk that those affected will feel "ridiculed" rather than appreciated. I look forward to your feedback and tips on this matter.
