Peter Stadelwieser

Product Owner | Scrum Master

Sunnyboy Peter from “Dorobiro” always has a cheerful laugh on his face and thus creates a good atmosphere. He performs his function as Product Owner with a lot of commitment and experience and he always succeeds in forming extremely powerful project teams. In doing so, he does not let himself get upset by (almost) anything. Only in the very rare occasions in which he can’t put on his touring skis in winter due to several days of bad weather lasting… then things can get tricky.

Günter Rudigier

Software Engineer

Raised at over 1000m above sea level in the harsh but beautiful surroundings of the Montafon, it was clear to him early on that his future profession would have to be in the field of electronics and computer science. His experience in the areas of production, test equipment construction, HW and SW development covers a very broad spectrum, which he always brings to our projects. In his spare time he tortures his guitar from time to time and also likes to go for a ride on his motorcycle.
