Sekretariat
Lilli Beichel

Fachinformatiker mit Schwerpunkt Anwendungsentwicklung
Carsten Hoffmann
IT Specialist with a Focus on Application Development

Is as cool as a cucumber. Seldom the fist on set, but once he shows up sparks are spraying. Resolves developmental tasks with perseverance and diligence. Minimalist. On weekends he races around curves with his motorbike.

Steven Chiu
Mechanical Engineer - Support for U.S. and Canada

Is very smart and a quick study. Enjoys solving problems. Always lends a helping hand. Explains things so well, the customers don’t even need help anymore. No concept is too complex for this engineer. Permanently jetlagged. He also speaks Chinese. Beware of his strong hits on the tennis court. His secret: he sings along when he is alone in the car.

Her patience never wears thin, she's been restoring calm in the day-to-day business for more than 20 years already. She bridges the gap between management and staff with finesse and masters every task with ease. At home she always finds the right ingredients for a harmonious meal with dog and partner.

      Has been with us from the beginning. Can implement (almost) any theory and masters every programming hurdle, no matter how big. In a nutshell: our problem-solver. Is nice and socially savvy, even though he is a genius. When he gets a moment away from poring over the source code, his table tennis game is on fire or has his nose in a book. 

      Werner Hoernemann
      Technical Documentation

      Central player from the start. His aesthetically pleasing awareness and incredible ability to imagine things three-dimensionally, make all of the software's support drawings so precise. His self-explanatory images are worth more than a 1000 words. Migrating bird of the company, more likely than not he can be found down South during the winter months. Well-balanced, funny and always open to new things.
