Janik von Rotz


Hi, my name is Janik von Rotz. I’m a Software Engineer / IT Consultant from Switzerland and have got a BSc in Business and Information Technology.

Complex problems can only be solved by interdisciplinary teams. We need leaders who are able to connect people rather than dictate them.
