Read what our colleagues say about working at hte.

PRINCIPAL SCIENTIST, R&D SOLUTIONS

"The application of High Throughput Experimentation in catalysis is fascinating and enables hte to speed up and improve the quality of R&D in all phases of catalyst and process development. We support our customers from idea generation to catalyst synthesis and catalyst testing with dedicated project teams, state-of-the-art technology solutions, and integrated analytical and software solutions. Since 1999, we have built up facilities and learned to test catalysts within a scale-up factor of 100,000, which means that we know how to get experiments done with as little as 0.2 grams and up to 20 kilograms of catalyst. Working successfully at hte with our customers is intriguing and rewarding – we are able to do experiments in multi-variant parameter spaces with unprecedented data quality, which has led to new developments and catalyst solutions in the refining, petrochemical, and chemical industries."    

TECHNICAL EXPERT ANALYTICS,

TEAM LEADER DATA ANALYSIS, SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS

"Structuring, storing, and merging data from various sources is the key to success when developing new catalysts. With my team, I am able to provide a modern software solution which fits the needs of both technicians and scientists in data management. Following the concept of agile software development known as SCRUM, we collaborate with our users as partners and keep them involved. This helps us to get quick feedback and avoid feature development in the wrong direction. We can react quickly to changing priorities and thus achieve high satisfaction among our users."
