© 2019 - MinkTec
MinkTec strives to manufacture its own products on the basis of printed flexible sensor technology. The company intends to build up as much know-how as possible internally, in order to be able to develop perfectly tailored products. The services offered should also help other developers to create their own products on the basis of MinkTec's expertise without having to compete.
The two founders Eugen Koch and Martin Schwerter developed the idea of a spin-off company in the field of flexible sensor technology during their doctoral thesis at the Institute of Microtechnology (TU Braunschweig). Benjamin Holmer joined the team at the very beginning and supports it especially in the business context. The MinkTec GmbH was finally founded in February 2019 in the framework of the Exist-Gründerstipendium (funding for founders) of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Research.
The name MinkTec is derived from the lively little animal Mink. It is a marten species that is considered to be very smart, active and agile. We have made these characteristics our motto and combine them with our flexible sensor technology and the qualities of our team. Furthermore, the .com URL for this name was still available ;)
Eugen is the "visionary" in the team who always has an overview of the big picture. According to "TTI Success Insights" he is a self-starter who loves new tasks and feels most comfortable when he has several projects running at the same time. He is a very innovative person and uses this ability to solve difficult problems. His clear vision of the results he wants to achieve is one of his strengths.
Martin is the “inventor” in the team who takes on every technical challenge. According to "TTI Success Insights", he is patient and responsible, creatively implements new ideas and can focus intensively on details. Within the team he is the patient listener and relies his opinion and judgement on results and facts. He brings stability and balance to the team with his calm manner.
Benjamin is the perfect "networker" in the team. According to "TTI Success Insights" he is optimistic, confident and usually has a lot of sense of humor. He is communicative and loves a variety of interpersonal relationships. He can lead a team, bringing together the skills of his people and increasing individual participation. He has the ability to see a problem as a whole, taking into account both the relationship level and the factual level.
To master all these exciting tasks we will need a lot of support in the future. At the moment we are increasingly looking for software development support. You will find interesting tasks in the areas of app development, cloud storage, machine learning, desktop data evaluation and more. The tasks are also very suitable for student work. So get in touch if you feel addressed.Contact
