Thomas works as a Field Application Engineer in Trinamic. He gained a bachelor’s degree in electrical and information engineering at the University of Applied Science in Hamburg, Germany and specialized himself in digital systems. During his studies, he supported the R&D team of Tronical with the development of self-tuning guitars. The combination of the very practical approach of the university and the daily work in the company offered the perfect preparation for a work life in a high-tech company.

The conception and development in this project included all aspects of modern system engineering, like the electrical design, embedded firmware, desktop software, and production topics. This was the perfect opportunity to learn how to implement Trinamic products into systems and a quick way to have a direct influence on the way Trinamic technology can be accessed.

End of 2015 he headed as FAE into the ‘field’, with the mission to accelerate applications to amazing and successful products. Traveling to different places all around the world, Thomas is helping engineers to find the perfect products, accelerate the development and solve all kinds of technical issues.
