Around 1985, Konrad started as a very young developer using assembler concentrating on game development. The studies of economics and econometrics at the University of Zurich helped him creating very early high frequency trading bots back in the 90s. In 2003 he co-founded a small SaaS-model based company in Switzerland, which reached market leadership in the sector a few years later. After 2015 Konrad and his partner decided to leave corporate life behind and to dedicate their time and knowledge to privacy- and freedom-related technology projects.

Since 2022 Konrad is also lecturer at University of Applied Science and Arts, Lucerne, Switzerland, teaching "Distributed Systems and Microservices". He talks and teaches about free/libre software.

Konrad dedicates most of his time and knowledge to the development of free software (like AGPL or better) software. This work is done within the non-profit and open association "". It is today a recognized research institution cooperating with universities by funding and supporting research projects.
