I’ll always have mtc

The­re are some exci­ting pro­jects cur­r­ent­ly hap­pe­ning at mtc and I have pro­mi­sed to show­ca­se them. This is still an ongo­ing the­me and an ongo­ing pro­mi­se I intend to ful­fil. That and to high­light the dif­fe­rent teams. The teams that make up the com­pa­ny, the peop­le that make up the teams. The peop­le here are important to…

It’s just food

I am sup­po­sed to wri­te a blog for our web­site today but I just can’t qui­te seem to find the right wor­ds. Nor­mal­ly I pick one from the week (the best one or the one most rele­vant to what we are working on) and upload it on Fri­day to mtc.berlin. If I haven’t got­ten som­e­thing in mind by Fri­day…

getting things done

I just clea­red my desk and clo­sed all my app­li­ca­ti­ons. I put my pho­ne on air­pla­ne mode and dis­con­nec­ted myself from the inter­net. I even prin­ted out a sign that says “plea­se do not disturb” and pla­ced it on my desk. I set a timer for 25 minu­tes and I have offi­ci­al­ly ent­e­red deep work. Deep work is the work you need…

Where is our SCD team?

I went ups­tairs this after­noon to speak with some­bo­dy about the upco­m­ing Tech Café. And I wal­ked into an other­wi­se bust­ling office to find it total­ly emp­ty. With the excep­ti­on of one lone­so­me cowor­ker, busi­ly typing away… He told me that today was the go-live date for a huge pro­ject which had most of the SCD (Site­Core…

the holodeck

What is a holo­deck? A fic­tio­n­al plot device from the tele­vi­si­on series Star Trek. It is pre­sen­ted as a sta­ging envi­ron­ment in which par­ti­ci­pants may enga­ge with dif­fe­rent vir­tu­al rea­li­ty envi­ron­ments. What is the holo­deck at mtc? A lar­ge mul­ti-pur­­po­­se room to hou­se mtc’s big­gest mee­tings and trai­nings. What was hap­pe­ning in the holo­deck today? A non-fic­­ti­o­n­al…

Happy Monday

A lot of peop­le don’t like Mon­days. I know this becau­se I hear it often. How was your wee­kend? Too short. Can’t belie­ve it’s Mon­day. I don’t like Mon­days.” I don’t get it. What makes Mon­day worse than, lets say, Fri­day for examp­le. Are you bet­ter rested on a Fri­day? Are you more pre­pa­red on Fri­day? Are peop­le gene­ral­ly…

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.

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…
