Štěpán Eret (Cloud Development Group Lead)

Štěpán has 17 years of software development experience. He started as a C++/C#/.NET developer developing MES systems, and for the last 4 years focused on the development of our IIoT platform based on AWS.

“What I really like about my job is the connection between physical and virtual world. Krones not only manufactures filling lines but also develops the IIoT platform on top of it. As a result, we can engage with everything from the metal to the cloud, and the range of topics is very wide. 

As a member of our community, I have the opportunity to be part of something bigger and meaningful. We collaborate on cross-disciplinary projects focusing on sustainability and ecological efficiency.”
