Teams, colleagues and personalities
Our employees combine expertise and humanity
PTA is a family business that employs several generations of the same family. The company's wide-ranging technical and IT expertise, its constant development, strong sense of responsibility and team-oriented cooperation means that it is ideally positioned for the future.
Living diversity and technical flexibility
PTA employees have a lot in common: In our company, individual initiative, motivation, independence and the courage to take responsibility are essential.
Our company philosophy is based on cooperativeness combined with a high level of technical expertise, which is what our customers have come to appreciate.
Each employee brings their own individual skills and qualifications. University graduates and technical experts work together, hand in hand. The diverse teams are made up of graduates of business and natural sciences, information technology and people who have changed career.
Around half of PTA employees have completed a university degree.
IT as a man's world? At PTA, about a third of employees are women.
The age structure is relatively balanced – which connects longstanding experience to new impetus, across the generations.
Those who join PTA, stay
Each year, 5 - 10% of employees celebrate milestone anniversaries (10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 years).
This could be down to the family-friendly atmosphere at PTA, together with the interesting and varied tasks.

"What would you advise your Company? Fact that different character types from different disciplines are set, I find very rewarding. In any case, continue to maintain the leadership style can motivate the employees themselves and not have to respond to economic pressure."
