Company Culture

Strategy and planning

“No Plan Survives Contact With the Enemy" - Helmuth Karl Bernhard Graf von Moltke (GermanField Marshal)
  • We accept uncertainty as a part of our process.
  • We have a technology vision, medium and long term plans. At the same time we understand that it will change as we progress and discover new things about the products and market.
  • We believe that it’s more important to lead the market, create new products and partnerships that trying to fight competitors.
  • Our competitive vision is bases on the concept of dynamic and fast growth.
  • We believe that it’s more important to share ideas than protecting our IP (Intellectual Property) with patents.

Technology Vision

“The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed” - William Gibson (Fiction Novelist
  • We think that the strength of our products and our services and our competitive advantage are based on TECHNICAL INNOVATION.
  • While most other companies just say that they do innovate, we really strive to do innovation and invest real money in it.
  • Most of our process are based on COMBINATORIAL INNOVATION: when available we use existing (Open Source) software libraries, services and APIs and combine it together to create new products. Otherwise we write software components from scratch. This approach gives us efficiency and effectiveness.
  • We believe in OPEN SOURCE because we prefer to invest in people rather than in software licenses.

Economical Resources

  • We pay special attention to cashflow and liquidity. This allows us to invest rapidly in markets and business that can provide innovative solutions or strategic opportunities.
  • Moreover the economic response to our suppliers, which is almost immediate and regular, makes our suppliers turn into partners, guaranteeing us the best prices and quality.

People

“Why join the navy if you can be a Pirate?” - Paraphrased from Steve Jobs
  • We have been lucky to recruit excellent people so far and to keep them.
  • Our goal is to keep on hiring the best people we can find, without compromise.
  • We also believe that work should be challenging. This is why we ask the newcomers to work from the beginning on important projects.
  • Most important of all, we want to maintain the excitement, that everybody shares in our company, of coming to work every day to do something amazingly great.

Fabio Galasso

Fabio Galasso
Fabio Galasso

I have a master degree in automation engineering. I focused my studies in developing and calibration of vehicle dynamics control laws. I started developing and calibrating the traction control, abs and stability control on a vehicle having 1.6 HP/kg ratio, but it was only 40 [cm] long. Now I am playing with larger vehicles but I am still having fun. I develop and calibrate vehicle dynamics virtual sensors and the Performance Traction Control.

Give me a challenge, I'll provide you the result!

Join Us

Basic Rules (sorry to be very direct but clarity is important for us)

  • We are looking for excellent Data Engineers to develop the next generation of intelligent machines
  • If you are looking for a career in a structured company to climb the hierarchy using politics THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT COMPANY FOR YOU.
  • If you are interested in developing specific skills on a limited set of technologies and to be recognized for it, THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT COMPANY FOR YOU.
  • If you do not care to grow, change, understand, develop, and if you're afraid of getting involved, THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT COMPANY FOR YOU.
  • If you don’t want to be confined to a specific role, you are not afraid to be exposed and take risks, if it’s the curiosity that drives you forward and you are looking for an opportunity to create something important for your future and you want to be provided with the technological means to do so, well, you’re looking for something special: GO ON AND KEEP READING!

Who are we looking for?

You must have a SOLID BASE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE: whatever is your level of theoretical preparation, if you cannot translate what you know in CODE, you cannot be integrated into our group.

We require a strong experience in some programming language. Usually we work with PYTHON and C / C ++ but we know that if you are good in other languages you can learn quickly. So even JAVA, Objective-C or GO are fine. You must be ANALYTICALLY SMART, you have to FEEL the numbers, understand and create complex graphics, you must have the predisposition to search for the meaning hidden in the data. You must be the type of person who spends his weekends and nights to create something practical.

You must be an eternal curious, spending your time in redesign your software, your home, your life.

You must be a person who does not accept the status quo, the person who ask questions, solve problems. You are not afraid of failure because you know that in every failure you can find an opportunity to grow. You don’t wait for someone to tell you what to do, you have a sense of initiative.

You have a dream and this dream is not to work 8 hours a day waiting for the weekend.

What can you expect from us?

Your merit will be determined by the quality of your ideas and your work. You will have the most advanced tools that we can provide. We'll give you responsibility and freedom to choose. We will always ask you to express your opinion. We will keep your objectives clear and the rules loose.

Awesome. I Have It.
