Jesko Hussla's career highlights - after completing Bachelor and Master studies of International Relations at distinguished American educational facilities - are: 7.5 years employment as consultant and general manager of a small consulting business I ran together with my father Dr. Ingo Hussla. This business specialised in consulting European high tech consortia on how to obtain funding for research projects from the European Commission Framework Programmes for Research. For sucessful project applications that received European funding, the company offered a menu of management support services, Another milestone on my carreer was a nearly three year employment at the Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht as Assistant for Institute Director Prof. Norbert Huber, as well as Department Head Dr. Jorge dos Santos of the Materials Research Institute. After this timed contract came to end, I worked as project manager for Fishlabs Entertainment, a leading Game company in Hamburg, for the first time with responsibility for coordinating the move of the company to a new bigger location and coordinating small teams for production of game projects. In the game projects, principles and methods of Scrum were employed. At the moment I am looking for a new work challenge in the project field, preferably as administrative project coordinator along with a technical coordinator in a technology oriented industrial branch. I offer modern project planning, tracking, and management expertise, as well as business skills that will help drive the project toward a successful conclusion within the parameters of time and resources as planned and allocated.
Fishlabs Entertainment, Project Manager
February 2011 - April 2012, Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
I came to the company as first certified scrum master with the initial idea of running game development projects according to scrum. In the projects I was responsible for, I was able to use some elements and components of scrum in the planning, tracking of project progress, as well as in the implementation by the teams. Very helpful and accepted by the higher management were the typical scrum burn down statistics and other scrum project controlling and reporting methods. I also was involved in the organisation and implementation of the smooth move of the entire comapany to a bigger location in the centre of Hamburg.
Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, Assistant
September 2006 - April 2009, Geesthacht, Schleswig Holstein, Germany
The Institute Director and I worked together on some very huge funding application to the Helmholtz Organisation in the order of tens of millions of Euro and tens of partners from all over Germany. The application involved a great effort of handling all the data of the many complex research topics and teams. I also was responsible for editing in chief and designing a new internet presence for the materials research instute, integrating inputs and texts and images from various departments. Further, I helped organise and implement several bigger research conferences at the location of the instute, and also helped a head of department with carrying out a market study for a service company in innovative welding for ship yards and other applications. Lastly, I helped the department head manage a research project, as his right hand in organising meetings and editing reports, minutes and other texts.
