Working at: Anton Paar OptoTec GmbH

"We drive the technology of optical instrumentation forward and work with passion and professionalism."

Dr. Nils Bertram, General Manager | Anton Paar OptoTec GmbH

“Is the chemistry right?” – That’s a question that comes up in a couple of different contexts in my work at Anton Paar OptoTec. With our products, we can identify substances according to their chemical fingerprint or we can check their purity. Also, in the recruiting process we have to find out whether the chemistry is right – but in that situation, I don’t have a measuring instrument helping me. 

We always look for motivated and talented team players who are strong in communication. They develop our products and software with passion or look after them throughout the life cycle as product managers. Similarly, we need application specialists who find solutions to complex questions from the market based on their expertise. Skilled professionals who assemble, test, and calibrate our instruments with care and precision are another pillar of our success, as are the colleagues managing the supply chain.

A working day at Anton Paar OptoTec is very diverse, just as diverse as the target industries in which our products are at home: Pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, chemicals, governmental labs, and academic research – that’s where our products have been used over the past fifty years. 

I know that we can achieve more together than we can do on our own so we encourage the team spirit with company events. At the same time, I put emphasis on training and professional development. This is beneficial for both employees and the company. The flexible time model helps our employees balance their work and private life. 

Outstanding results require the best tools and a professional environment. This can be assembly jigs, development tools, or the bright, modern, and air-conditioned low-energy building, which provides us with a pleasant work space.
