Ruth has been working for Deutsche Welle since the early 1990s. She started as a TV journalist for various formats - focussing on documentaries. With the emerging internet she started to explore the possibilies of this new media channel.
For Deutsche Welle she developed concepts for first online activities; she was the project-lead for Deutsche Welle's first major online service. That was when she first had initial contact with “technology”. As project manager she took over various large projects as well as product manager.
Since the beginning of 2019, she and others have been building up technology management - keeping used technology up to date and bringing new technology quickly into the real operation of the company - these are her heartfelt matters.
