At KROENERT we are colleagues and not just people who happen to work in the same company! To introduce ourselves, we have asked some of our colleagues in short interviews to describe themselves and their field of work in more detail. We also asked them what their most exciting project was, what their favourite gadget is and which app has changed their lives.
