WKO Team — Digital rollouts for global brands

mtc is an agi­le com­pa­ny with dedi­ca­ted teams which offer exper­ti­se and expe­ri­ence in the digi­tal world of deve­lop­ment and sup­port. We live in a digi­tal world but we stri­ve to offer digi­tal sup­port and solu­ti­ons for humans. I will take the next few weeks and high­light the­se teams and the indi­vi­du­als that com­pri­se them. The­re is…

Knowledge Transfer

We have a lot of smart peop­le at mtc. A lot of peop­le from dif­fe­rent back­grounds, expe­ri­en­ces, coun­tries, even. That means we have a lot of know­ledge floa­ting around the­se parts, boun­cing off com­pa­ny walls. But how do we dis­co­ver it? How do we har­ness it? How do we sha­re it? We have All Hands, our mon­th­ly town hall mee­ting.…

mtc kicks off

mtc kicks off

Last Thurs­day night mtc had its start of the year annu­al kick-off shin­dig, or Jah­res­auf­takt, as we like to call it. A small and per­son­able affair held on site, hosted and orga­ni­zed by us. Various dis­hes were coo­ked and brought in, show­ca­sing the diver­se tastes and cul­tures which make mtc, mtc. The mood was rela­xed and…

You look tired

Someo­ne told me I loo­ked tired today. It hap­pens a lot in Ger­ma­ny. It never used to hap­pen in Ame­ri­ca. This could mean one of two things: I never loo­ked tired in Ame­ri­ca. Ger­mans are more honest than Ame­ri­cans. I think it is the lat­ter. To be honest, I like the hones­ty. I think it is real­ly good for…

Plug and Play People

Last week I was approa­ched by two of our inter­nal employees. They were exci­ted and wan­ted to sha­re with me a suc­cess sto­ry. So we sat down and had a quick chat in the lounge: cof­fee bre­wed, com­pu­ters out, note­pads open. The only pro­blem was, by the end of the mee­ting I still hadn’t taken any notes. And to…

Truffle Pigs

Pho­to by James Frid from Pexels “When I search for new addi­ti­ons to the team, I always look for a “Trüf­fel­schwein”. Someo­ne who sear­ches for, and is good at snif­fing out bugs and fin­ding solu­ti­ons. They fit well to the team becau­se most pro­blems we encoun­ter from our custo­mers are real­ly com­plex. So you have to find…

Me, myself and I

I had to pick a daily blog post to go on our mtc web­site this week and came to a sad rea­li­sa­ti­on. All of my stuff is writ­ten in the first per­son and near­ly all of my posts begin with “I” Look. Even this one.… I don’t mean to. It just hap­pens. I don’t mean to be so self-cen­te­­red. I mean, I do…

Are we modern enough?

A quick goog­le search reveals some pret­ty pro­mi­sing results… 28 Col­la­bo­ra­ti­on tools your team is mis­sing 50 mee­ting tools to ensu­re your team is always con­nec­ted 15 tools to help your team col­la­bo­ra­te bet­ter than ever! So how do we keep up with the ever flo­wing influx of new tools and pro­mi­sed short­cuts? I’m wil­ling…

Rehumanize Ourselves

I was scrol­ling through our web­site the other day and rea­li­zed that the­re is hard­ly a men­ti­on of the humans that work here. Sure, some of us are more pri­va­te than others and many of us don’t want our pic­tures pla­ste­red all over the inter­net. But is the­re a way to make our web­site more human, more…
