UX & Analytics

We are curious and creative people from various industries and backgrounds. Putting ourselves in the shoes of our users is what we do for a living. We love to understand the problem and try not to jump into solution mode too quickly.

Through global yet pragmatic user research, we seek an active dialogue with our customers at construction and production sites. Along with the nuggets of knowledge gained from the synthesis of our research, we use quantitative measurement of our end users’ activities on our digital products to form tangible and strategic directions for our product teams. We truly believe that providing the best experience for our customers requires a deep understanding of the end-user’s needs and a relentless drive to meet them.

Finance & Governance

Providing a basis for decision-making based on the financial impact, allocating costs to products and customers and preparing as well as steering the IT budget globally are our core tasks. 

In this team it is all about numbers - so you should definitely love them! But we also care about the story behind the numbers and about our people. Our team members have an analytical mind, work well with structure and are team players.
