The Passion to Develop Solutions for Society
Semper-Tech is a spin-off of DAI-Labor, which is a trend-setting research and innovations lab in Germany.
Semper-Tech was founded by Prof. Albayrak. Prof. Albayrak is also the founder of German-Turkish Advanced Research Center for ICT (GT-ARC) and Deutsche Telekom Innovation Laboratories.
Under Prof. Albayrak’s leadership, Semper-Tech has been working to create a local ecosystem that fosters continuous and sustainable innovation with the help of global partners including DAI-Labor and GT-ARC.
Life at Semper-Tech
As a result of horizontal organization, co-working relationships are strengthened with social bonds.
To its team, Semper-Tech offers a next generation comfort rather than a traditional colleagueship. With a fully digitalized office a smart space is created using sensors and control units around the office. The digitalization offers assistance for everyone at the office for better lighting, higher air quality and secures the entire office, while still saving energy and keeping it a "green" office.
The working environment is also automatically controlled for good O2 levels and better luminosity. This quality improves creativity and innovation for each and every colleague.
In Semper-Tech, everyone may become an expert in a particular field or build proficiencies across many areas. We develop solutions with a wide spectrum from machine learning to data science and from cyber security to internet-of-things.
Each solution can be easily installed on our servers and can be seen by the entire company by our Test & Touch capability. Each project can be tested on touch screens in our Face The Future corridor. Colleagues can gather around a screen and discuss the product.
Here, one can drive career development under the supervision of the experts of the fields. The only constraint is not to stand still.
Our engineers have the chance to improve themselves and process forwards with the strong connections to leading universities and R&D laboratories.
Our colleagues can enjoy the fresh air and take a few minutes off on our big terrace. One can enjoy his/her meal or a short coffee break here.
Our terrace witnesses social and technical discussions quite often since it hosts sincere environment for its guests. Engineers enjoying their coffee meanwhile sharing their ideas about recent technologies or even a news yield better innovation and carries classical meeting room experience one step ahead. Many innovative ideas stimulated around open air coffee breaks.
Our kitchen is not just a place to have coffee or to grab a quick bite, it also encapsulates the digitalization of the office space. On the big touch screen one can easily follow the topics and new technologies that the company has as a goal through the Infoboard feature of Bilgin. It brings a blog-like context from internal and public sources that do cover the topics of our focus areas.
The kitchen is also equipped with a whiteboard that runs through the walls of the entire office and is ready for fruitful discussions about new ideas and technologies to be discussed between colleagues.
