The IFTA Depart­ments In­tro­duce Them­selves

As an IFTA em­ploy­ee, you al­ways have the big pic­ture in mind. At IFTA is suf­fi­cient­ly large to rep­re­sent all the key areas and small enough not to lose sight of the var­i­ous areas.

Embed­ded Devel­op­ment

Reach­ing the goal in real time

The main task of the soft­ware de­vel­op­ers in this team is to de­sign and im­ple­ment re­li­able and ef­fi­cient soft­ware for em­bed­ded sys­tems. It all re­volves around our mon­i­tor­ing and anal­y­sis plat­form that an­a­lyzes sen­sor data in real time and con­trols sys­tems. This plat­form is used in every sys­tem we de­liv­er. We work with micro con­trollers, DSPs and FPGAs, de­vel­op code in C++ and Python and use mod­ern de­vel­op­ment tools such as Git and Ger­rit. We work close­ly with our col­leagues in elec­tron­ics de­vel­op­ment and soft­ware ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment.

Elec­tron­ics Devel­op­ment

From sig­nal pro­cess­ing to cir­cuit board de­sign

Our elec­tron­ics de­vel­op­ers con­ceive and de­sign com­plex cir­cuits and PCB lay­outs for the ac­qui­si­tion and pro­cess­ing of sen­sor data. The team de­vel­ops pro­to­types and puts them into op­er­a­tion in con­tin­u­ous co­op­er­a­tion with our em­bed­ded de­vel­op­ment de­part­ment. It is our aim to de­liv­er in­no­va­tive and durable hard­ware, which is al­ways state-of-the-art and meets the re­quire­ments of a de­mand­ing mar­ket. We work close­ly with our col­leagues in sales, man­u­fac­tur­ing and sup­port to en­sure that we are close to our cus­tomers and their needs.

Ap­pli­ca­tion Devel­op­ment

With Java, Scala and other lan­guages

Ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ers in our com­pa­ny de­vel­op in­no­va­tive soft­ware for the vi­su­al­iza­tion and anal­y­sis of mea­sure­ment data - from the first draft to the fin­ished prod­uct. High per­for­mance of Big Data pro­cess­ing, com­pre­hen­sive anal­y­sis pos­si­bil­i­ties and in­tu­itive op­er­a­tion are the main fea­tures. Our de­vel­op­ment team uses the pro­gram­ming lan­guages Java and Scala, in­clud­ing pow­er­ful de­vel­op­ment tools (Eclipse-RCP, Akka, Git). We work with agile soft­ware de­vel­op­ment using state-of-the-art meth­ods such as Kan­ban, Scrum and a con­tin­u­ous in­te­gra­tion ar­chi­tec­ture with au­to­mat­ic re­gres­sion tests. Par­tic­u­lar­ly ex­cit­ing is the in­sight into the mea­sure­ment tech­nol­o­gy due to the close co­op­er­a­tion with the hard­ware de­vel­op­ment.

Man­u­fac­tur­ing & Tech­ni­cal Sup­port

From the idea to the prod­uct

We man­u­fac­ture and sup­port high­ly spe­cial­ized mea­sur­ing sys­tem so­lu­tions to order. Our pro­duc­tion team meets the high re­quire­ments of our cus­tomers with the pre­cise as­sem­bly of sys­tems and the in­di­vid­u­al con­fig­u­ra­tion of elec­tron­ics and soft­ware. This process in­cludes tech­ni­cal ar­range­ments with our cus­tomers as well as test­ing and final ac­cep­tance. That is where ev­ery­thing comes to­geth­er! As a con­se­quence, this also in­cludes close co­op­er­a­tion with the other de­part­ments. Fur­ther tasks are the tech­ni­cal sup­port as well as the trou­bleshoot­ing and re­pair of sys­tems. World­wide on-site as­sign­ments for com­mis­sion­ing and main­te­nance com­plete this var­ied and tech­ni­cal­ly de­mand­ing field of ac­tiv­i­ty.


From prod­uct to so­lu­tion

We offer our cus­tomers in in­dus­try and power gen­er­a­tion in­di­vid­u­al­ly cus­tom­ized mea­sure­ment tech­nol­o­gy. The chal­leng­ing and ex­cit­ing tasks of our sales staff in­clude not only win­ning new cus­tomers and pro­vid­ing sup­port through­out the en­tire prod­uct life­cy­cle, but also open­ing up new sales mar­kets. De­ci­sive suc­cess fac­tors for us are the on­go­ing co­or­di­na­tion of sales with the de­vel­op­ment de­part­ments and the high tech­ni­cal com­pe­tence of our sales staff. This en­ables us to offer our cus­tomers op­ti­mal so­lu­tions based on the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy.

Ad­min­is­tra­tion, Order pro­cess­ing, Mar­ket­ing, Per­son­nel

Rang­ing from home­page to com­mu­ni­ca­tion to des­ti­na­tion

Our broad-based back of­fice makes an im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tion to the suc­cess of the com­pa­ny. Our col­leagues in ad­min­is­tra­tion and order pro­cess­ing, with their deep un­der­stand­ing of the prod­uct, en­sure that day-to-day busi­ness runs smooth­ly. Our mar­ket­ing de­part­ment con­trib­utes sig­nif­i­cant­ly to the suc­cess­ful sale of our prod­ucts and to the growth of the com­pa­ny through up-to-date and tar­get­ed con­cepts and their im­ple­men­ta­tion. In ad­di­tion to ad­min­is­tra­tive tasks, the per­son­nel de­part­ment fo­cus­es on the well-being of our em­ploy­ees and con­ducts a wide range of re­cruit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.
