Interview with Sebastian Günther
How was your career at Allied Vision?
After studying electrical engineering and various positions in the automotive and aviation industries, I joined Allied Vision in 2015 as a host software developer. My time as a developer was very much shaped by the Alvium camera series, where we really did something completely new with the ASIC development. Here I was mainly involved in Linux kernel driver development on embedded systems. I later took on the role of technical lead. During this time, I worked closely with product management by working out a corresponding market and corporate strategy together.
In 2019 I took over responsibility for the entire R&D Department. That was a big leap for me. However, my previous role gave me a lot of insights into the company and our processes. Because I was a developer at Allied Vision myself, I know the projects and products very well and have a good feeling for effort and complexity. I see that as a great advantage. We also have a great team that gives me great support in setting up, challenging and promoting the R&D of tomorrow.
What do you particularly enjoy about Allied Vision?
It is still very exciting in how many different applications cameras are used to solve specific problems. The products that we develop are based on an interesting, complex technology that fascinates me very much. So it is not difficult to identify with the product, which I personally find very important. Of course, a good working atmosphere is just as important.
What do you think defines Allied Vision?
At Allied Vision we do not shy away from tackling technologically very demanding projects and breaking new ground. We are in an exciting market and have great products. This generates a very interesting working environment. We offer great individual development opportunities. It is certainly always a matter of what you make of it and what is currently important for the company. What I find particularly at Allied Vision is that classic career paths are not always followed, but rather that potentials are looked at and how these can be awakened.
What can you give other applicants?
Anyone who, as an engineer, wants to make a difference, is not afraid of the challenge and values further development, has come to the right place.
Graduate to a great career!
Have you already completed your studies, or are about to graduate? Now is your chance to put all the theoretical knowledge you have gained to good use. You will find working at Allied Vision both highly challenging and deeply rewarding, because we offer great career development opportunities as well as the chance to work internationally.
Interview with Bernardo Luck - Application Engineer
Interview with Kaustubh Gujar - Corporate Strategic Purchasing Manager
Bernardo Luck enjoys Allied Vision's international working environment as an Application Engineer in Ahrensburg, Germany.
Hi Bernardo, please introduce yourself and let us know about your career path and current role at Allied Vision?
In 2013, I was an Application Engineering student at Allied Vision. During this time, I made friends with many of my colleagues. The company has a great atmosphere and I was happy to accept an offer of employment two years later.
What are your duties as an Application Engineer?
Mainly, I advise our customers with any of their product challenges. I help with all technical questions from both our customers and our sales colleagues. My responsibilities are to prepare the content of our presentations for customer trainings. For trade fairs, I prepare demos, to demonstrate our products.
What is the most exciting thing about your job?
With our customers and colleagues, I feel the multicultural experience as extremely exciting. You must adapt to the different ways of thinking of the customers and find the right "tone". It is also interesting to think in in the technical tasks and to find new ideas for solutions. Internally, we constantly exchange ideas with our colleagues, which is also great.
How did you come to know about Allied Vision?
I heard about it from fellow students.
Do you need a university degree for your job?
I studied electrical engineering with a focus on telecommunications. But you could have electrical engineering, computer science, or a programme that includes hardware design and software development.
How would you describe the company culture of Allied Vision?We have a multi-cultural working environment at Allied Vision because we are represented in Europe, North America and Asia. And despite the size of the company, I feel communication with each other as very nice, helpful and easy.

Kaustubh Gujar came from India to study in Germany and made his master thesis with Allied Vision. He was hired as a Purchasing Manager and still works at the Ahrensburg office.
Hi Kaustubh, can you please briefly introduce yourself?
My name is Kaustubh Gujar and I am originally from India. Presently I working as a Strategic Purchasing Manager at Allied Vision in Ahrensburg, Germany.
What was your experience as a student at Allied Vision?
I was pursuing a Master Degree in International Production Management at Hamburg University of Technology, Germany. I started working on my Master Thesis in the Corporate Development department of Allied Vision in July 2013. My background being production management, I quickly had to learn a great deal about cameras and their specific application markets. With an amazing support from employees at the Ahrensburg office, I picked up the necessary knowledge and focused my time in market research for a specific vertical market. I even got an opportunity to actually travel and meet potential customers along with sales managers to understand the market more closely.
How did you get to know Allied Vision?
During my studies I worked as research assistant for the Institute of Technology and Innovation Management at Hamburg University of Technology. As I approached the end of my studies, I was looking for Master Thesis. My previous employer there was aware of Allied Vision’s field of work and recommended me for Allied Vision’s topic of research. As a result, I received an offer to do my Master Thesis in Corporate Development at Allied Vision.
How is it to work at Allied Vision?
My thesis at Allied Vision has given me a chance to work in a globally competitive and challenging yet very friendly atmosphere. My curiosity to know more about cameras and the application markets was always precisely and positively responded to. I have not only strengthened my knowledge but have honed my work ethics as well. Eventually, I was hired as a Strategic Purchaser Purchasing Manager and could quickly take on more responsibility. Apart from work, taking part in the summer barbecue party and birthday treats of employees has been a real delight. Overall, I have grown positively in my career and Allied Vision has just the atmosphere for such nourishment. There could not be a better place to spend my thesis semester than at Allied Vision!

Interview with Finn
Could you please introduce yourself briefly?
I am Finn, 26 years old and from Hamburg. I am studying medical engineering at the Hamburg University of Technology, specializing in medical and control engineering. I am particularly interested in computer-assisted image processing.
How did you hear about us?
I was looking for a working student job and quickly became aware of Allied Vision on the common job portals. I applied and was then invited for an interview.
What are your tasks as a working student in the R&D department?
I don't have any fixed routine tasks. I am employed as a student for deep learning applications and work on various projects. A typical task is the prototyping of computer vision applications and the integration of Allied Vision cameras in embedded systems. For example, I implemented a deep learning based anomaly detection with MVTec's image processing software Halcon. A camera took pictures of effervescent tablets. The program detected and located artificially added defects in the tablets. Another project was a "Human Pose Estimation" in which a camera records a video of one or more people. A deep learning algorithm then locates the person's joints and body parts. The information on the joint positions can then be used for various applications. In my case I used the positions for a simple animation of a skeleton. I'm currently working on a small moving robot that is supposed to act autonomously with its environment with the help of Allied Vision cameras and deep learning algorithms. In order to be able to navigate better, two cameras are put together in a stereo setup, whereby depth information can be calculated. There are also occasional smaller tasks in between, such as designing a camera holder or test setups with the 3D printer. In principle, I have the opportunity to determine for myself which direction I want to go in all projects and can contribute my own imaginations and ideas.
How do you feel about Allied Vision's care for you?
The support is very pleasant. Everything was new to me, especially at the beginning, and I had no idea how many things work. My supervisor always took the time to answer my questions or to specifically help me with troubleshooting. This enabled me to familiarize myself very well. If there was no time or the question was too specific, I could always turn to many other employees and thus fall back on a lot of experience in almost all areas. The most important thing for me is that I can organize my working hours flexibly and not get stressed if I fail to work for a week. This was never a problem and I was given a lot of freedom so that I could combine study and work very well.
What do you think defines Allied Vision? What are your impressions?
What really stands out for me is the friendly working atmosphere. I was able to have a good conversation with all my colleagues from the start and was always supported with questions or problems. I have the feeling that I am taken seriously and valued and not just doing the work that others are too expensive for.
Where do you see yourself in the next few years?
Hopefully I will be able to continue as before: approaching new problems with curiosity, creating prototypes with room for creativity and fun at work. It is important for me that I have a pleasant working environment and colleagues with whom I get on well, as at Allied Vision.
What advice can you give to other students?
I would encourage everyone to take on a working student job, do an internship or gain work experience in another way. Regardless of the company, you can learn a lot, including about yourself. I think in the end everyone has to and will find their way and in my experience the possibilities and chances are most likely to arise when you actively tackle things, look around to the left and right and maybe even take a detour from time to time.
