Senior Director, Digital, Cyara, and Founder & CEO, Botium
Christoph Börner is a multi-organizational founder, developer, tester, speaker, and in his spare time, a pretty great drummer. Börner started his career in the 2000s after studying Information Technology at the Technical University of Vienna. As a developer, he discovered a love for coding, breaking complex systems, hunting for bugs, and creating solutions. As his passions continue to evolve, Christoph began to dedicate more focus to quality assurance in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Conversational Interfaces. With this mindset Börner, along with colleague and rock band partner Florian Treml, founded Botium, the leading industry standard in test automation for chatbots, voice assistants and conversational AI. Their open source framework is supported and used by a community of more than 250,000 users around the globe.
Börner is not one to take breaks, so when he is not actively at work, he is always working on a new project such as being co-organizer of the BotsHub Vienna, a leading knowledge network for chatbot development and testing. He also enjoys giving back to his community and formed the ViennaMobileQualityCrew in 2014.
