Mathias started his professional career as a videographer and editor but quickly switched first to teaching and then to IT 15 years ago. Starting in desktop support and systems administration he then moved into consulting and systems integration, working on desktop and application management and later got more involved in network security and PKIX. Network security led to network IP address management, DNS and DHCP, an area in which Mathias now has booked ten years experience. He has worked with a large number of enterprises and internet service providers around the world, as a consultant, trusted advisor and systems engineer. His current role at Nominum is in product management where he's responsible for the authoritative name server products and the DHCP server product.
