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.

Sales

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.
