The importance of software in technical systems has increased rapidly in recent years. Today, an upper mid-range car contains over 80 control units, whose functionality largely depends on software. Electrical drive concepts and increasingly environmentally friendly and safe systems reinforce this trend.
ITK Engineering AG (ITK) specialises in innovative, customer-specific solutions for the aforementioned topics. Renowned companies from the automotive, aerospace and medical technology sectors have relied on the expertise and experience of this internationally active development partner since 1994. Services by ITK can be found in driver assistance systems, state-of-the-art surgical equipment and engine controls. One of the latest projects is providing support for Audi Sport in the development of an energy recovery system for the Audi R18 e-tron quattro – the world’s first diesel hybrid racing car and winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 2012.
However, what really makes the company stand out is the family-like culture, where employee satisfaction, not maximising profits, is the key. As well as providing continuing education options and attractive social benefits, the company creates an environment in which career and family go hand in hand. Being named as the most popular employer by kununu.com and awarded as finalist at the “Großer Preis des Mittelstands” (Grand Prix of Small and Medium Business) prove that ITK is on the right track.
ITK employs more than 500 people at its headquarters in Herxheim, Palatinate, and branch offices in Germany, Austria, Spain, the USA and Japan. The company is heavily involved in promoting young talent in order to ensure its continued growth. Cooperation with schools and universities not only provides close contact to science and research, but also to the next generation of academic professionals. Field-related presentations and workshops and a comprehensive range of internships and dissertations allow pupils and university students to become familiar with the company and the work of a development engineer at an early stage. ITK supports particularly talented students with extra-occupational scholarships, funding for combined study programmes or doctoral projects.
