  • You are leading the efficient application of NoCode solutions and decide when to aim for a fully customized solution vs. a NoCode or a mixed solution. You support the product owner of other ventures to apply NoCode solutions and push boundaries where NoCode can be applied
  • You work on early prototypes where we often fake things. You figure out what technical solutions might fit for an MVP and experiment with the adaption of new solutions
