Another crucial aspect that trainers also take advantage of continuing education courses.

IT specialist training in the group
Additionally, SKIDATA participates in funding programs such as ITSalzburg//study.work.support available for information technology and system management students at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. As part of this program, students are awarded an internship at SKIDATA; two students are currently doing their internship with us.

SKIDATA world wide: a look at SKIDATA India

This Austrian leader in innovation enjoys Bollywood-scale success

SKIDATA world wide: a look at SKIDATA India

Rechts: Amit Rana; Links: Nimish Sonawala

SKIDATA’s Indian success story began in 2007 with their cooperation with local partner Hinditron. Shortly thereafter, SKIDATA, a leading company in access and revenue management, won tenders for the airports in Bangalore and Hyderabad, the first privately operated airports in India. This formed the basis for the foundation of the joint venture between SKIDATA India and Hinditron in 2009. Nimish Sonawala, Hinditron Group’s Managing Director at the time, was appointed Managing Director for Skidata (India) Pvt. Ltd. in Mumbai.

In 2014 SKIDATA won the parking solution facilities tender for the Mumbai International Airport Terminal 2, the hub of the Indian financial and business world. Today SKIDATA’s customers in India include numerous large shopping centers and stadiums such as the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad and the Buddh International Circuit Formula One racetrack near New Delhi.

It’s not only successful bids for numerous projects that have given SKIDATA momentum in India, but also its own development center. In the same year with the opening of your development site in Bangalore a new important milestone was set.

SKIDATA Technologies Bangalore

Known as the Silicon Valley of the East, Bangalore is a dynamic market. Here you will find the largest software talent pool in India. Consequently, start-ups and blue chip companies from all over the world have established themselves in Bangalore. This also includes SKIDATA Technologies Bangalore, which started operations in 2014. With great enthusiasm, General Manager Amit Rana reports on his software development teams: „My teams are passionate about their work and take great pride in developing products. It is not always easy to assert yourself in the job market against all the big names, but what we lack in size we make up in passion and commitment.“ At SKIDATA Technologies Bangalore work very good developers that are designing the next generation cloud-based solutions using cutting edge technologies in the mobile and web space. It makes the team especially happy to see their SKIDATA solutions in use at different locations in India.

Close teamwork and regular exchange form the basis

International success is only possible when people of various nationalities cooperate and are open to cultural differences within the team. Intercultural cooperation works at SKIDATA: for example, software developers from Austria, France, India and the US collaborate together on new technologies in our R&D department. Although cooperating with others who are thousands of miles away is no problem these days, it is always special to get to know your colleagues in person. For this reason, when SKIDATA employees from India visited the company’s headquarters in Grödig near Salzburg in Austria during the early years, it was an exciting experience for everyone involved.

Room for ideas: SKIDATA develops cloud-based solutions

Unlock via smartphones easily without on-site infrastructure

Room for ideas: SKIDATA develops cloud-based solutions

Room for ideas: SKIDATA develops cloud-based solutions

Smartphones are turning into keys: SKIDATA is once again doing justice to its role as market leader for access solutions by demonstrating how apps will be used on a daily basis in the future to open and close.

Book, pay and unlock: current projects

In Switzerland SKIDATA has implemented a self-storage solution that allows clients to book and pay for a storage area using an app and unlock it using their smartphone. This gives users the greatest flexibility without having to forego security and reliability. Another project is currently being put into action for one English shopping center operator which is setting new standards in parking management. Visitors can register online and gain ticketless access specifically for that customer; for example an RFID tag for their car . The basis of this innovation is cloud software which boasts incredible stability and speed.

Creativity is the basis for innovation

SKIDATA gives employees a place to explore and implement new technologies. For Christian, who first had the idea of integrating cloud-based solutions into SKIDATA products two years ago, these are the perfect working conditions: „Our CEO immediately liked the idea and the necessary resources were also made available. It was especially exciting to work with large companies such as IBM.“

In contrast to SKIDATA’s existing online services, this is the first time external cloud infrastructure has been integrated. Christian has been part of SKIDATA’s Business Development Team since 2015. Here he can incorporate his creativity in many ways and apply himself to developing innovative solutions.

Do you have fresh ideas and an interest in technology?

At SKIDATA we are always on the lookout for recruits with great ideas and enthusiasm for innovative projects. The open company culture with flat hierarchies and our open door policy creates an environment where innovation is welcome – not only for business development managers and product managers, but also for software developers, hardware developers and IT professionals.

Exciting career opportunities in Austria and abroad

The SKIDATA team and Digital celebrate their 60,000th ticketing mechanism unit

„It´s what“s inside that counts“ is also true of ticket management: dispensing and inserting tickets only works smoothly with high-quality mechanics that customers have become accustomed to in SKIDATA automated payment machines and parking gates. Because SKIDATA focuses on research & development and sales, the company relies on the comprehensive expertise of its production partner Digital. For decades the Salzburg-based company Digital Elektronik has been an important partner and supplier of components for all kinds of access technology, especially for ticketing mechanisms. Model 460 has been used in SKIDATA access solutions around the world since 2005 – reason enough to celebrate the 60,000th produced ticketing mechanism unit in December of 2015. SKIDATA works closely together with various partners and is excellently connected in all areas of business, from production and development to sales and distribution. Cooperation with other companies is an integral part of the work environment at SKIDATA.

Mechanics and technology from Salzburg in more than 95 countries

As a provider of access and ticketing solutions, SKIDATA equips ski resorts, sports stadiums, airports and shopping centers in all four corners of the world. The combination of reliability and innovation has been the basis of SKIDATA´s success since the development of the first ticket register in 1978. Founded in the same year, Digital Elektronik GmbH has been a trusted partner ever since. The companies successfully work together in many different departments. Because of the number of new projects and therefore new contracts, the Order Processing Team is constantly in close contact with the team at Digital. Hanno Nuesslein, Manager of Central Order Management at SKIDATA, praises the good cooperation: „I would describe our work together as extremely collaborative. Digital consistently proves to be a flexible, solution-oriented and reliable partner, above all in the area of operations.“ SKIDATA´s Order Processing Team is currently hiring – find more information about the position here: http://www.skidata.com/en/career/details-on-open-positions/detail/mitarbeiter-auftragsabwicklung-logistik-mw.html

SKIDATA worldwide: a look at SKIDATA´s Dutch subsidiary

General Manager Willem-Jan Balk has been involved since the beginning

SKIDATA worldwide: a look at SKIDATA´s Dutch subsidiary

SKIDATA worldwide: a look at SKIDATA´s Dutch subsidiary

For more than 20 years SKIDATA has had a branch in the Dutch city of Barendrecht near Rotterdam. Willem-Jan Balk began his career at SKIDATA as a project and sales manager and has been involved in this branch since its founding in 1993. For the past three years, he has been responsible for The Netherlands, Scandinavia, the UK and Ireland as General Manager and Area Manager for Northern Europe.

One thing that Willem-Jan finds especially exciting about working for SKIDATA in The Netherlands is the great openness to innovation you can find here. Early adopters particularly embrace internet-based solutions. The Dutch market is therefore very dynamic and highly competitive. So it is even more pleasing that, despite this competitiveness, SKIDATA has established itself as market leader for parking systems with a market share of more than 60%. As a result, the original team of five has become a remarkable team of approximately 55 employees.
In order to maintain high standards in the service area, service staff is distributed around the entire country and can quickly travel to our customers when needed. Plus, SKIDATA Support assists with questions and problems 24 hours a day.

Europe´s fourth-largest airport has relied on SKIDATA parking systems for years

Amsterdam´s Schiphol Airport has been a satisfied customer since 1993 and so the decision was again in SKIDATA´s favor when it came to renewing the parking system: in 2009 the Salzburg-based company delivered a new, innovative parking solution for the fourth-largest airport in Europe. A total of 40,000 parking spots are managed with the sophisticated system that sets new standards in customer service and other areas. Parking spot reservations, VIP parking and interfacing to customer loyalty systems are just some of the challenges that had to be addressed in the development of this large-scale project.

Working at SKIDATA – company values count around the world

When it comes to his colleagues, Willem-Jan most appreciates their enthusiasm and passion. Their great dedication and company values make an impact – meaning colleagues don´t only celebrate joint successes, but also get positive feedback from customers and build long-term customer relationships. „New employees at SKIDATA Holland should have two things – passion for working in a team and a winner´s mentality,“ concludes Willem-Jan Balk.

SKIDATA, an international leader for access management based in Austria, is always seeking qualified employees for service management. Current employees can also look forward to frequent international job opportunities far beyond Europe.

SKIDATA informs about career opportunities

This leader in innovation from Grödig counts on school visits, career fairs and presentations – Information for Students & Graduates

SKIDATA informs about career opportunities

Meet & Greet at SKIDATA

SKIDATA regularly invites groups of high school and university students to Grödig to offer them a glimpse into the world of access solutions and ticketing systems. Recently, for example, students from the FOM University of Applied Sciences in Nuremburg visited this innovative leader. But it“s not only groups of students who can take a look behind the scenes at SKIDATA; in June and July, for example, teachers of the Rankweil and Innsbruck polytechnic schools took the chance to keep in contact with the industry and create a closer connection between training and the professional world.

An exciting reunion for SKIDATA employees and their training institutions

It is not uncommon for SKIDATA employees representing the company at career fairs to reunite with their former training institutions. For the participants it is a special experience to visit their former schools, see their professors and teachers and meet new students. One example is Christian, senior manager for hardware development/project management. Thirty-one years after graduating from the HTL Braunau polytechnic, he gave new students information about his career path. „You stay in the loop when it comes to developments at the training institutions, and more subjects are always being added. One positive thing I noticed at the company day at the HTL Braunau polytechnic was that more and more young women are choosing to attend technical schools,“ says Christian.

SKIDATA career events in fall 2015

We will be on tour again starting in October after the summer break: SKIDATA will be represented at numerous career fairs in Austria and will inform soon-to-be graduates about career opportunities. The following dates are already scheduled:

A department introduces itself: Research & Development at SKIDATA

Frank (Senior Vice President of R&D) provides insight

A department introduces itself: Research & Development at SKIDATA

Research & Development at SKIDATA

Frank was VP of Embedded Security for the Kudelski Group, SKIDATA´s parent company, for five years before taking over management of product development at SKIDATA in September 2012. Prior to this, he was Infineon´s Design Center Director from 2000 until 2007. There he worked for the German development location in Nuremburg and thus gained extensive experience for this demanding task. In his free time, Frank is a passionate snowboarder and water sports fan.

In this interview he tells us which developments his team in Research and Development is currently working on and what is especially important to him when it comes to teamwork.

JOIN our TEAM – a diverse range of tasks in international teams

„The most up-to-date innovations, being one step ahead of the competition, reliable products, on-time solutions and developments of the highest quality – these are the things we commit ourselves to and the things which characterize work in R&D,“ says Frank during the interview.

Research & Development is responsible for the entire product development at SKIDATA. There is excitement for everyone in this range of tasks:

– Development of classic client server systems for the areas of parking management and personal access
– Development of cloud-based access solutions; for example, for destination management – that means connecting singular access and management solutions in the areas of events, mountain sports regions and parking management. Through this we make additional functions such as reservations, online ticket purchase, remote maintenance and surveillance of systems as well as B2C and B2B solutions available to our customers.
– Design and development of access hardware, such as access readers, barrier gates, parking columns and paying and vending machines
– Quality assurance for hardware, software and system solutions in order to guarantee flawless, reliable operation for customers.

Each member of the R&D team is part of the larger whole in new and ongoing developments or system integration of the many solutions over the entire lifecycle of a product.

R&D is positioned around the world with development locations in Grödig and Klagenfurt in Austria and teams in France, the USA and India – subdivided into the areas of software development, quality assurance, hardware development and project management office. „Even within the team it is becoming more international: meetings in English are part of our everyday work,“ explains Frank.

Thus R&D is currently in a phase of internationalization: staff in the software and system development departments, especially for cloud-based systems, project management, quality assurance, test automation, electronic component development and mechatronics, are always in demand. „When it comes to new employees, I value not only essential technical knowledge, but also very good English skills, social competence and eagerness to work in an international, intercultural team. Those who think in a solution-oriented manner and value professional teams and a modern development environment have come to the right place. These dynamics require that you always stay up-to-date with technical progress and are open to new, innovative ideas and change in international markets,“ continues Frank.

The great work environment; the high level of dedication and the staff´s passion for their work; the international environment; and technological challenges in rapidly changing times are what Frank enjoys the best about SKIDATA. „SKIDATA has great potential as an innovative company. Here you can really make a difference,“ Frank concludes.
