Who is Kevin Indig?

I help companies with Growth by helping them with strategic user-acquisition, activation, and retention.

It’s important to me to be known as someone who stands for ethical and sustainable Growth – no cheap or dirty hacks.

I currently run Technical SEO @ Atlassian and mentor start-ups in and outside the German Accelerator.

How I got into “Growth”

Born as the son of an American Doctor and a German nurse, I wanted to be a doctor all of his life.

Well, not all my life.

When turning 18, I realized that as a doctor you can help only so many people. As a “digital native”, I saw what technology can do for people. So, I set out into the tech world as a digital marketer.

The dream of becoming a doctor and helping people inspired me to acquire a set of highly valuable skills. The most important one: reverse engineering. Doctors look at symptoms, find the root cause and give a diagnose. Then they develop a plan to improve the state of the patient, not only erase the symptoms.

 I do the same with companies. To me, the idea of optimizing a system is highly intriguing (as dry as it sounds).
