Flexible Work Hours

Personal Development

We support you in developing yourself according to your own goals – for example, by offering further education or internal training.

DIY Espresso

… and of course we have the best espresso in Magdeburg, which we roast ourselves.

Our Technology Stack

Just like we are open and transparent as people, we like our technology stack to be just as open. To give you an idea of what languages and frameworks we use, here are some of the projects we like:

Although old, we still use C as the main programming language in our projects when it comes to embedded projects.

Almost all our new embedded products that only have an ARM M0 or M3 use the Zephyr RTOS as the operating system.

For more powerful systems, like our advanced RFID readers, we use our own embedded Linux distribution called “Metropolis” built with Yocto.

For our daily work, we rely on Linux as a secure and flexible operating system with only a few exceptions (where customers or supplier tools require another desktop OS).
