Alex is a skilled automobile technician and fitness trainer. Some of his responsibilities at TOPMOTIVE include product development, technical data, and automotive support. In 2013, he got a tip from his friend that he should apply at TOPMOTIVE since he was looking for a new challenge. Alex really values the friendly and familiar relationships, which you can especially see at the annual family summer festival. In his free time, Alex's world revolves around fitness, so it is not surprising that he regularly takes place in bodybuilding competitions.
If you talk with Andreas, you immediately recognize that he knows his craft. Thanks to his training as an automotive technician and as a technical assistant in computer science, he brings the ideal experience needed to be successful with us in software development. Within his team, he takes care of projects such as Smartclient and our Error-Tracking-System (ETS). On the job, he has been able to offer his expertise for over 15 years as well as his interest in technology and computers. One thing is important for Andreas: a company climate with a pleasant work atmosphere and exciting assignments. It is the kind of environment that TOPMOTIVE offers him and his colleagues.
After her studies in psychology and subsequent master's degree in human resources management, Andreea immediately joined TOPMOTIVE at our Romania location. She heard about the open position as management assistant from a friend, and because of her positive experiences, she did not hesitate long before applying. Andreea has been a part of our TOPMOTIVE family since 2014 and takes care of administration, accounting and event planning. She considers it important that the work she does at TOPMOTIVE is valued.
Attila has been a member of our TOPMOTIVE family since 2011. His responsibilities range from the development of our standard iOS catalog applications to customized applications and the new Customer Interface Service (CIS). As a computer scientist with a master's degree, he meets the daily challenges with ease. And as a passionate athlete, Attila is a team player not only at work but when playing soccer, basketball, table tennis, or badminton in his free time. To relax after all these activities, he likes to listen to music or play the flute. Attila appreciates the feeling of being part of a big team where everyone feels respected and valued for the work they have done.
Bernd has a degree in commercial information technology and has been at TOPMOTIVE since 2007. When a former colleague told him about the establishment of a software-development division in Stuttgart, he immediately knew he wanted to be a part of it. In addition to the lateral hierarchy, uncomplicated interactions and space for his own ideas, Bernd also believes in TOPMOTIVE products - and as a proud owner of a Honda CBF 100 he knows best. He also appreciates the company's employee benefits and family friendliness. His job leaves him enough time for his family, his two mixed-breed dogs and his engagement with his evangelical congregation.
Since 2010, Birgit has supported international sales and clients at our office in Austria and takes on organizational tasks for DVSE Austria, which means her responsibilities vary a great deal. It was already clear to Birgit that she wanted to work in the IT sector during her training at the school for commercial professions using IT support. She landed at TOPMOTIVE through her family. Not only the innovative and high-quality products but also the familiar atmosphere is reason enough for her to work at TOPMOTIVE.
Professionals such as Carlos ensure that our creative solutions fit user needs. The Colombian systems engineer is product manager at TOPMOTIVE for a web application (MVC application) that can be integrated in the various catalog systems in the form of modules. Carlos has carried out these often complex assignments since 2013 together with a team of skilled and valued colleagues. Because he is still relatively new to Germany, TOPMOTIVE is like a second family to him, with whom he also regularly plays football in the evening. As liaison to the colleagues on the web development team in Romania, he is also in regular contact with the testing team and the designers in Targu Mures. His private dream is to horseback ride with his family through the mountains and forests at some point.
Whether an old-timer or new on board, every single member of TOPMOTIVE is important. Christian has been a part of TOPMOTIVE since August 2015. He studied commercial information technology in Hamburg and at first worked with us as an intern in software development. Christian applied on his own initiative and received a contract shortly afterward. After his study he continued working with us as a web developer. In his free time, he enjoys playing table tennis and regularly hones his tactics.
Technologies and methods are continuously changing and evolving. If you see these changes as a challenge, as Cornel does, you are in the right place with TOPMOTIVE. As a software developer, routine is out of place. And Cornel has proved as part of the TOPMOTIVE team since 2012 that he can creatively master these challenges. In his free time, he even prefers to work with the newest technology the market has produced - as long as he is not traveling the world at the time.
The variety involved in working at TOPMOTIVE is especially clear in Corinna's responsibilities. She not only takes care of accounting and the annual financial statements but also the introduction of new processes and a variety of other projects at our international locations. Having already gained experience in the automotive industry and in a software company during her professional career, she brought the ideal qualifications with her. Corinna has a master's degree in international business administration. She studied with one of our board members and became a member of TOPMOTIVE shortly afterward. Corinna values the company´s appreciation of the staff, the strong cohesiveness, and the possibility of implementing ideas. In her free time, she likes hiking in the mountains or enjoying Hamburg's cultural diversity.
Cosmin has worked with us since the beginning of 2015 as a software tester in Romania. The working climate is particularly important to him, and he especially appreciates the established teamwork at TOPMOTIVE. He even occupies himself with computers and IT in his free time - as long as he is not busy with ball sports such as soccer.
Dennis' openness and his interest in his job are the best qualifications for an internship with us. He encountered TOPMOTIVE at a job fair at the University of Lübeck. Dennis applied to TOPMOTIVE because of the responsibilities in different areas of software development and immediate involvement in customer-oriented and ambitious projects. Since April 2015, Dennis has supported the team in Bargteheide, and we are pleased that we were able to hire him as a permanent employee after his graduation.
Dierk is a trained automotive technician and plant security specialist. After his training, he worked for a parts wholesaler, which is also a TOPMOTIVE client. Thus, Dierk had already been in constant contact with us. Because he wanted to develop his training in the area of “repair shop software”, he decided to apply with us in 2004. He especially appreciates working for an employer that is oriented toward the future. Dierk’s responsibilities include training large TOPMOTIVE clients (country-wide employee and client training) and supervising their trade fairs. He also supports our developers in the area of "new development, integration and expansion" and performs software tests for quality assurance. When he finds the time, Dierk also enjoys participating in cycling races and triathlons.
As head of product development in Bargteheide, Dirk is moving TOPMOTIVE forward. It was already clear to Dirk that he wanted to work in an IT company before his training as a data processing administrator at "MSD Computer and Software" (the parent company of DVSE at the time). The reason Dirk has been with us since 1992 is not only the high level of identification with the products and TOPMOTIVE's good reputation but also the fact that his own ideas are appreciated. Dirk's free time often revolves around food, both preparing it and enjoying it.
At TOPMOTIVE, Edin is responsible for our clients in Eastern Europe. As an industrial engineer, he takes care of the particular daily needs of our clients in this region in his calm and cheerful way. This interesting area of work requires an understanding of the client's business processes, the technology used, as well as the particular cultural differences. In his opinion, TOPMOTIVE succeeds very well at being a company that is family friendly and helpful. The sector, collegial climate and work itself round off his position to his satisfaction.
Every single TOPMOTIVE employee contributes to its future. As does Ioana, who is the main responsible collaborator for administrative tasks in Romania. Here she can organize, coordinate activities, and attend to matters affecting both the Romania location as well as others to her heart's content. In addition, Ioana also takes care of finance and new colleague recruitment at Targu Mures. Ioana is sure that TOPMOTIVE will continue the story of its past successes into the future. And she is in a great position to judge this because she was a part of DVSE RO from the beginning and has had the pleasure of seeing us grow.
At TOPMOTIVE, the health of our employees plays a big role. Ives probably makes the most use of our corporate fitness program, Hansefit, because he usually spends his lunch break doing athletic activities. As a trained office administrator, Ives is responsible for the development of new products and the implementation of various ideas. He brings the ambition he has as an athlete and avid griller with him to the Stuttgart office every day. Even if a thought seems impossible at first, Ives puts it into action with the help of his colleagues.
Jozsef has been working as a software developer at the Romania location since the beginning in 2008 and is now working on the WPF development team. After his studies, it was quickly clear that he wanted to be there for TOPMOTIVE's initial years in Targu Mures. And after 7 years, he has to admit that TOPMOTIVE has become a part of his life. Not only because he is personally connected with the company but also because he feels at home with his team and has fun doing the job. In his free time, he occupies himself with the arts of the Middle Ages and practices archery.
Very soon after completing her training as industrial clerk, Kirsten´s path led to TOPMOTIVE. Initially, she worked in our accounting department, then Kirsten performed at other functions such as in administration, sales and support. Meanwhile, Kirsten is an important part of our company and irreplaceable. For more than 16 years, she has been taking care of everything that has to do with administration, the organization of fairs and other events. With her know-how and her long-standing experience, she does not only accommodate these diverse tasks but also takes care of our internal employee program KISS and, thus, the well-being of her colleagues. Thanks to the family-friendly working conditions at TOPMOTIVE, Kirsten has enough time for her family and her horses.
Lena has a university degree in applied languages and business and has been at TOPMOTIVE since 2013. When she applied to one of TOPMOTIVE's partners, they recommended her to us. After that, everything moved pretty quickly, and a few days later she already participated in the licensee meeting. Up to then, she actually had far more to do with language and culture than cars and IT, but in the meantime she has had fun in the industry. After her studies, it was important to Lena that she works in a medium-sized company where she could bring in her own personality and ideas. Lena's job is primarily to support the managing directors and the sales team in Stuttgart. She takes care of organizational tasks, is responsible for general documentation, internal communication and planning for various events. Lena is especially interested in the contact with clients, interactions with other departments within the company, and the variety of jobs she undertakes.
After Markus accomplishing his apprenticeship in information technology & application development at TOPMOTIVE, he begins to study Computer Science. As part of the WPF team, he developed a tool that will be used within the company to facilitate repetitive work. Soon he will be changing departments again, which will give him the opportunity as a trainee to gather different impressions and experiences. Next, Markus will be involved with the online catalog. Because he is engaged in a lot of activities in his free time such as the volunteer fire department, programming, and music, it was important to him that his time at work could be divided up flexibly, which is possible at TOPMOTIVE.
Someone who has played around with C16 + C64 in their free time has the best qualifications for working as a software developer. After his training in information technology, Oliver had tasted blood, and expanded on his knowledge at university. He successfully completed his studies as a software engineer. But anyone who thinks that he is always at his desk is mistaken: Oliver is also starting a small LARP career as well. He sometimes wanders throughout Lower Saxony with thousands of other people dressed as a sorcerer. In addition to all these interesting hobbies, at TOPMOTIVE he especially takes care of our largest clients, where his job involves the complex import and export of their master data and optimization for Oracle.
"Computer science" and "information technology" are particularly fascinating themes for many people. This is particularly true at TOPMOTIVE. You can see this great interest in Rare as well, who chose IT as a field of study. He can apply his know-how really well with us as a software and app developer. But not only is expertise important in a company such as TOPMOTIVE, creativity, analytic thinking and the ability to work in a team are appreciated. Rare is pleased that his work and his personality are valued at TOPMOTIVE.
Since 2014, Rhea has worked as project manager at ALDOC-TOPMOTIVE in Etten-Leur. Her job right now involves data processes, login administration and translation. She also supervises our motorbike project and looks forward to future challenges. While studying biology, she quickly noticed that "gasoline runs through her veins" and that she was more interested in cars than plants. So she quickly decided to make her hobby into a profession, gained experience in an automotive repair shop, started her training at an automotive manufacturer, and ultimately studied automotive technology. In her free time, she terrorizes the neighborhood with her 2008 Honda CBR600RR. As a mother of 3 children, work-life balance was in the foreground when choosing a job. Thanks to our family-friendly company, Rhea easily manages the balancing act between her job and family.
Sascha shows us that even in the age of the Internet, you can come across us the old-fashioned way. Sascha, who is a highly skilled automotive technician and certified economist, became aware of TOPMOTIVE in 2008 through an advertisement in the local paper. He is responsible for leading the technical data department. But he does not just sit around typing in his office; he is also a passionate drummer in his free time and drums on anything he can get his hands on. What makes TOPMOTIVE a special employer for him is the uncomplicated interactions at all levels, cohesion among colleagues, and collective problem solving.
A company such as TOPMOTIVE grows with and through its employees - Sebastian's career is a good example of this. He already started with us in 2001 through an acquaintance and subsequently completed his apprenticeship as an IT network administrator. Both sides were quickly convinced that this would become something long-term. Since 2004, he has worked with us as a project and product manager. The familiar atmosphere, open ears and good compensation have continued to convince him to stay with us. His area of responsibility mainly concerns customer support, product development, data analysis and data processing.
When Stefan has an idea, it is a good one, and will be implemented, too - no matter how impossible it seems at first. At TOPMOTIVE, he can realize any of these many ideas, and he can sometimes even just "throw an idea out there." So all previous ideas and ways of doing things can be questioned in order to achieve a common goal, namely the success of the company. As a board member, since 2007 Stefan has worked on software development and strategic product development among other things. In order to continue to maintain contact with clients and keep up with the demands of the market after many years, he is also occupied "on the side" with German sales. For him, the team work, employee motivation and "spirit" that are always on display at the trade fair or the licensee meeting are particularly representative of TOPMOTIVE. As a big FC Bayern fan, Stefan also sometimes kicks the ball around himself, even though with 2 children he does not have a lot of free time.
Szilveszter's career at TOPMOTIVE began in 2010. He came to us on the recommendation of a friend, and he has since worked as a software developer at our Romania location. At the moment, Szilveszter is active on various projects in WPF development. We can describe our location in Targu Mures as a success story because of colleagues such as Szilveszter. TOPMOTIVE is not only a job for him but a second family.
"Once TOPMOTIVE, always TOPMOTIVE." This motto applies not only to our customers but also for our employees. Thomas is living proof of this because he is still working for his first employer to this day. He has been at MSDas and so also a part of TOPMOTIVE since 1990. After he had successfully completed his training as data processing administrator, his success story in Bargteheide began. In the meantime, Thomas is part of the managment board and is responsible for IT, support, and tasks within the MSDas. He spends a lot of his free time with his family.
Torsten has been a member of the TOPMOTIVE family for 20 years. After he had successfully completed his training as a technical assistant in computer science, he found TOPMOTIVE through a friend. Now he works on the KfzWIN team as a developer and takes care of special support issues. TOPMOTIVE has managed to convince Torsten thanks to the nice colleagues and good organization. Torsten has played badminton in his free time since 1982 and coaches children. He is not only active in sports but also with languages. Currently, for example, he is learning Dutch and Swedish.
Since the acquisition of ALDOC, Vincent has been a part of the TOPMOTIVE extended family. His official title is project and sales manager, but this is not the only area where Vincent has his fingers in the pie. His average workday also involves maintaining databases, revising the layout of catalogs and, most importantly, getting the cake for internal meetings. Of course, when you have such a demanding job, you want to relax during your lunch break. That is why Vincent plays pool in the office with his colleagues every day. This helps him clear his head so he can concentrate afterward again on his work. He values the reassurance that TOPMOTIVE and TOPMOTIVE-ALDOC offer clients and colleagues as well as the many company events.
