NKT to grow its IoT team in Kaunas, Lithuania

By

NKT, a global power cable manufacturer, and THINKT, an innovation hub backed by the Danish company, are bringing their joint competencies to Kaunas where they are establishing a digital project development team. The new site will collaborate with the THINKT hub in Berlin to support and develop new projects for the energy industry.

“As NKT has been growing its team in finance over the past year, we realized that Kaunas has a strong potential to help us drive our digital agenda and we wanted to seize this opportunity. A strong technical university, the expertise in IT that the local talent pool possesses, and entrepreneurial spirit made the decision to grow our second team in Europe here in Kaunas easy,” said Veaceslav Driglov, CEO, THINKT Digital.

The company is looking for embedded software engineers, software developers, project managers, UX/UI designers, QA testers, and solution architects to join the new team, which will be developing new solutions for international companies with focus on industry-wide and cross-industry innovation challenges in the energy sector and beyond by leveraging the latest technologies. The team is expected to grow to around 30 professionals in two to three years. More information on positions can be found at www.workinlithuania.lt.

“IoT is one of the future industries in which Kaunas has an enormous potential to build a strong cluster. On the one hand, scientists at Kaunas University of Technology have been working with this technology for several years and have not only developed scientific knowledge, but also gained experience carrying out projects with businesses,” said Virginijus Sinkevicius, Minister of Economy, Lithuania. “On the other hand, foreign companies that open branches in Kaunas bring their international experience and industry knowledge. This combination should also help local developers to grow.”

“The real potential of IoT technology lies in not just consumer but also industrial applications, and with such innovative developers as THINKT choosing Lithuania, our specialists will be one of the first to embrace new facets of this technology. This will help the country to stay competitive at the dawn of the Industry 4.0 revolution,” said Mantas Katinas, Managing Director, Invest Lithuania.

The THINKT team will be based at the NKT business services center, which is situated in Kauno Dokas, a new business center.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
