Esther Bretschneider

Nationality: Germany
Area of Expertise: Product development, Anthropology

Esther completed a Bachelor’s in Social Anthropology before making the leap into the tech sector, where she was a senior business analyst and product consultant at ThoughtWorks. Esther’s work embedded her in multi-disciplinary agile teams to deliver bespoke software to a range of commercial and public sector clients, where she became fascinated with human centred design approaches and their potential to humanise technology.

Esther has relished the opportunity to probe the intersection between design, technology and anthropology at CIID, and has especially enjoyed creating work that is socially conscious and human-centred.
