Alexander Greim as Director Engineering is heading the central Mobile & Web Frontend unit at XING that includes iOS, Android, Web as well as design systems and mobile DevOps. He is one of the key figures in transforming XING into a mobile first company. Earlier in 2010 when mobile became traction, he was given the responsibility to put together a mobile team.

Initially in 2008 when he joined XING he was assisting in developing the web platform, but just after 6 months he took in charge of the entire Ruby on Rails team. Alex graduated in computer science in 1995 and worked on various freelancing jobs, before starting at XING.
