The Team behind sentin

We are four technology enthusiasts and have been able to gather several years of industry experience in this constellation. As an interdisciplinary team with expertise in data science, business modeling, industrial engineering and computer science, we have developed Industrial Analytics software to marketability. Following our decision to found our own company, we have successfully participated in several business plan competitions and are currently in the European funding program START-UP-Hochschulausgründungen NRW.

MAXIMILIAN TOPP

Maximilian Topp is the computer science all-purpose weapon of sentin. He is primarily interested in the abstraction of problems from a scientific-mathematical point of view. He was already able to use and expand his outstanding practical expertise at Airbus Defense and Space and Bosch Rexroth. A new topic to which he is dedicated is the world of blockchains and distributed ledgers. His interest in other disciplines and new technologies makes him a versatile expert of the team.

ARKADIUS GOMBOS

Arkadius Gombos is the team's prototyping mastermind. As an advanced-engineer at Bosch Rexroth, he specialized in the automated evaluation of load collectives of mobile work machines. He brought this industrial analytics use case up to the productive solution as a web service. He was responsible for the development team as well as the planning and implementation of IoT prototypes. Starting with the embedded programming of calculation models up to the frontend and backend development, there are very few places in the IoT stack he didn't master.
