Berlin

The inside of the average factory is very heterogeneous; machines as well as sensors stem from various suppliers, were manufactured at varying times, and run on different versions of software. As a result, production managers and employees often struggle to gain a transparent understanding of ongoing production processes. This is where Antreeb steps in. By connecting factory machinery, regardless of the producer, year of manufacture, or software, Antreeb provides a real-time overview of the factory’s operations – from anywhere, at any time.

We are looking for a talented CTO and co-founder with experience in the industry 4.0. With further previous experience in user-centered product design and company building, you, together with a great CEO and co-founder, will be incorporating and founding Antreeb. A team of 8 professionals in the fields of Product, Data Science, Back-end as well as Front-end development, UX and Design will be supporting you in the process. As of now, Antreeb has been successfully running a pilot project for two years at one of the Berlin-based Mittelstand manufacturers. Our product is fully production-ready, but what makes us especially stand out is us constantly aiming higher, non-stop working on adding more value-adding features as required by our target customers. Be part of this journey and help us bring Antreeb to the next level!

  • Start off with the MVP we built and take it to the next level

  • Experience with embedded platforms
  • A solid understanding of data engineering
  • The ability to communicate transparently and effectively with your team and co-founder as well as with key stakeholders, such as clients and investors – fluency in English and German is a must.

  • Good understanding of Lean Manufacturing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lean_manufacturing) processes
