Tobias Roth

Vice President Information Management

My name is Tobias Roth and I work as an IT project manager at TecAlliance GmbH. I started my professional career in 2009 in the company . Since then I have worked in a variety of positions, tasks and departments. After successfully completing my A-Levels, I started training as an IT specialist with a focus on application development.  In the course of this I went through the entire IT department of the company. After successful completion of my education, I became a web developer for the development and support of software products. Since my personal interest has always been in international matters, I seized the opportunity and started a dual bachelor course in International Business Industrial Sales & Marketing in cooperation with TecAlliance. In the course of this I moved to the Business Development department, where I was responsible for the analysis of the Chinese market and the design of pricing models.  In addition, I was given the opportunity to spend half a year abroad for a semester near Los Angeles, California, USA. Because I liked part-time studies very much, I decided to start a part-time Master’s degree in International Management after successfully completing my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.).  I moved to the Information Management division, where I have been IT project manager and product owner in an agile context ever since. After successfully completing the Master’s program with the title Master of Science (M.Sc.) and the additional title Master of Business Administration (MBA) from a Brazilian university, where I completed a period abroad, TecAlliance offered me another opportunity for further development. In addition to my work as a project manager, I started a part-time doctoral program at the beginning of 2019.  All my different activities in the company were and are characterised by great colleagues, varied tasks and continuous new challenges. My main tasks are the management of multinational agile software development teams and project planning and control. I am also active as a trainer and enjoy working with students and trainees.

My name is Dirk Kaupert, and I work for TecAlliance in the field of IM Tools. My career started in a completely different area.  After finishing school, I completed an apprenticeship as an electronics technician. Afterwards, I continued my education as a state-certified technician for electrical engineering/data technology. This brought me step by step to software development. I became a software developer through various correspondence courses and have been working in this position at TecAlliance since 2015.  My core task in the company is the development of recording programs for the internal recording of vehicle data. I implement work packages in the frontend and in the backend. The cooperation with colleagues and external service providers takes place in agile teams. What I really like about TecAlliance is the agile way of working and the team spirit in our young and dynamic company. I also like the development potential, which is supported by targeted training courses.

Christian Becker

Research Engineer

My name is Christian Becker and I am part of the Research & Innovation (R&I) team of TecAlliance.  I joined the TecAlliance in 2011 and started my training as an IT Specialist - Application Development. This allowed me to gain my first experience in software development and the TecAlliance. Subsequently, I took a course in Applied Computer Science at the DHBW in order to gain more detailed knowledge in computer science.  Since October 2018 I have been doing the Master in Computer Science in cooperation with DHBW CAS.  In the company I take care of optimizations and process improvements in the field of information management. By means of new technologies and approaches, as well as machine learning, we test in a team how we can accelerate our data acquisition and further increase the quality standard. I am also available to the development teams to answer questions about new technologies and support the transfer of the developed prototypes to line production.  In addition, I am responsible for supporting our apprentices and students when they want to complete project work with us in the R&I team.  At TecAlliance, I greatly appreciate the great trust placed in the employees. We can contribute and develop our own ideas. Due to the flexitime and home office arrangements, parallel study in the CAS Master's program is also less problematic. 

Georg Speth

Senior Software Developer

When my studies of Software Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Heilbronn slowly came to an end in early 2008, I was looking for a suitable diploma thesis. Through a fellow student I came into contact with the company AuDaCon IT-Solutions GmbH (as the company was then still called) in Weikersheim, where I wrote my diploma thesis - a web tool for the translation run - from May 2008 to September 2008.  As I found the working environment very appealing and I also came to appreciate my colleagues, I was delighted when I was made a takeover offer after my successful completion of my studies, which I gladly accepted. Until the introduction of the new structures, I worked in the team that provided the RMI (Repair and maintenance information) for the customers in the form of program libraries or web applications. Thereby I specialized myself towards the backend. Already during this time I came into contact with trainees who completed part of their training in the team and was allowed to give them professional guidance. In 2016 I had the opportunity to take on more responsibility and passed the AEVO exam at the IHK.  Since the restructuring I have been working in the Data Manager Trade BU in the RMI Backend Team. There we take care of the maintenance, support and further development of the RMI program library and its web service.  In my private life I can consider myself lucky as a staff member of my cat. Furthermore I like to play analog board games; which we also do on a fairly regular basis in the games evening we founded with some like-minded trainees.
