Dr. Bernd Michelberger

I’ve been working as a Software Developer in Product Development since 2015. As a team leader and product owner, I’m responsible for several ACTICO products. My current focus is on developing a machine learning component. What I particularly enjoy about my job is the daily challenge of developing new tools for solving extremely complex problems. I also like working in international teams – we often develop solutions with our colleagues in Chicago and Singapore.

Alongside my work as a developer, I also represent ACTICO at university careers fairs and keep in touch with talented, up-and-coming developers.

I first heard about ACTICO as a result of some lectures given at the universities where I was doing my doctoral studies. I decided to work at ACTICO because it is part of an exciting, forward-looking industry, and it offered me an opportunity to work with a successful team in a growing company.

Working at ACTICO has taught me a great deal, particularly in terms of product development and technology. Now I’m much better at understanding and analyzing the processes used by banks and insurance companies. Development isn’t just about technology, but also expertise. So it’s the perfect combination for a business informatics specialist.

What do I like most about ACTICO?

The flat hierarchies, the creative, innovative environment and the good working atmosphere. We have close contact with our managers, and it’s also very instructive because they often come up with creative, innovative ideas that we can incorporate into our products. Another thing I like about ACTICO is the fact that you are given responsibility very quickly. There is also a great team spirit and working atmosphere, which I find really motivating. There’s always something to laugh about – both at work and at our team events. I also have the freedom to continue working as a part-time lecturer at the Ravensburg-Weingarten University of Applied Sciences.
