Meet the team – Employee testimonials
Sarah Gumpenberger, Team Manager & Project Lead
In Summer 2020 I started as a project manager at Elektrobit. After a very exciting first year, in 2022 I additionally took over the team lead of some people I have already been working with as a project manager. Starting a new job during the pandemic and in times with lots of home office was a new experience. Nonetheless, I realized quickly with how much passion people work and strive for the goals at Elektrobit Austria – therefore I knew it was the right place for me.
Besides the professional working atmosphere and the great knowledge of my colleagues in software development and the automotive industry, what I really like is working with people in different countries and time zones (Germany, Romania, etc.). Although the teams are spread worldwide everyone is extremely supportive when problems need to get resolved and everybody is open to contributing different views from every experience level. In my time at Elektrobit, I met amazing people in and outside of the office and I’m looking forward to all the challenges that lie ahead. ”
Nikolaus Donath, Technology Team Manager
“I joined Elektrobit in 2011 as project manager of a project team located in Vienna dealing with automotive communication software. Now I am responsible for an international multi-site project. I enjoy working in a highly professional software company, developing according to highest quality standards to deliver software which is used in a large number of cars. Seeing a car on the road with my software in it makes me proud. With the most recent developments in automotive software, work never gets boring and there is always a chance to learn new things.
What I like the most about Elektrobit is the good team spirit and the collaboration with colleagues also from other Elektrobit sites. It’s great to always find an expert for each subject who can support you in your work. I also appreciate the high flexibility when organizing my work. On some days I leave earlier for a private appointment and on other days I stay longer in exchange.”
Johannes Reisinger, Chief Architect
“I have been working for Elektrobit for 16 years now and it has never become been boring. I have always enjoyed facing technical challenges like, for example, the development of the FlexRay bus. Currently I participate in the development of autonomous driving.
Elektrobit is a great place to work at as on the one hand I can develop products but and on the other hand I can also work together with professional customers. My colleagues are very competent and highly qualified, and some of them have become very good friends, with whom I play badminton after work or even go skiing for a weekend. In a nutshell, we have a fantastic working atmosphere – also with colleagues from other branches worldwide – which I have never experienced in any other company.”
Günter Ebermann, Senior Architect
“When I joined the company during an internship in 2004, I immediately noticed the high knowledge of the people working here, so I wanted to be part of the team. That is why I quickly became a full-time employee and was fascinated by bringing FlexRay to the road in the BMW SC6. My work is still very exciting: I have recently worked on high performance Ethernet and Video capture and replay.
What I love the most about Elektrobit is that I can work together with a lot of different people, not only here in Vienna, but also in Germany, Romania, France, and the US. Moreover, we are extremely flexible with our working hours – a great aspect for me as a young dad. And the office is very modern and close to the center.”
