Who We Are

Ateleris GmbH was founded in 2016 as a University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland FHNW spin-off. Ateleris is an accredited Start-up at the TECHNOPARK Aargau in Brugg, Switzerland.

We are a software technology provider with experience in working on applied research and development projects for industrial and public partners, in Switzerland and internationally. We offer our know-how and expertise to collaborate on projects with a certain je-ne-sais-quoi. Our team members are professionals with strong backgrounds in their respective areas of specialization, such as software development, embedded programming, algorithm design, machine learning, data exploitation and optimization.

We are focused on (re)using technology and transfer knowledge and know-how from one domain to another. This is why we are involved in projects from a wide technological and topical range: we have developed embedded flight software and algorithms for satellites, engineered software so that robots find their way around, developed algorithms and smart applications for industry customers, and built data analytics solutions for data exploitation by business clients.

We are very interested in unconventional and/or challenging projects that allow us to use all of our experience. We prefer to work together with you on finding good solutions, in an agile and collegial manner. Finally, we vouch to be honest and focused on your problem and try to find elegant and innovative solutions that fit your needs.
