Petteri is hard working electronics designer who does not give-up until the system is working. Petteri is office dog Tapsu’s best friend.
Vineeth is the youngest member of the team. He studied theoretical physics and graduated as a master of Photonics from the University of Eastern Finland in Joensuu. He has previously spent some time at ETH Zürich levitating nanoparticles with lasers. If he is not working with the photons collected by the SPAD detector he likes to hike and collect incoherent photons on CMOS sensors.
Juho has a M.Sc in Software Engineering and 13 years of versatile design and development experience. He started his career developing server backend systems, then moving on to develop embedded & desktop software for optical measurement devices. The last few years he has been developing IoT systems focusing more on the embedded side. At Timegate he can put his whole skill set in use in heading the software development activities that span from the device firmware to the cloud. He enjoys twiddling with retro computers and has a working Commodore 64 in his office as well.
Dmitri is our software engineer with B.Sc. in Automation Engineering. He has gathered experience by working with industrial hardware and test automation systems in different fields of technology. Dmitri has important role in software development of our products and related applications. If you don't find him in the lab, he's in the kitchen getting angry at an empty coffee pot.
Arttu is our production manager with a B.Sc. in Aeronautical Engineering within Mechanical and Production Engineering. He has gathered experience from diverse industries. Arttu has a decade of experience working with military aviation, mainly with helicopters, including production planning, assembly environment, maintenance planning and ERP-systems. Past couple of years he has been working with railway industry also on customer interface in after-sales and service department.
Arttu is working as a hands-on guy for production, as a goal to contribute a productional take on our production. His spare time activities support our field of work, as he enjoys of various technical challenges with radio-controlled model airplanes and basically anything powered with combustion engine.
