d&b has changed the game in terms of what sound quality, and realizing expectation, is all about. At d&b the focus is only ever on one thing: developing solutions that go beyond expectation.

Do you look for a great place to work? Well, I have found one. d&b is just the right combination of passion and professionalism. The company is the living evidence that working with humour, knowledge and an open mindset will result in business success and growth. Why? Because d&b resonates the Wir-Gefühl, the team spirit, our customers, partners and colleagues share. Come and see for yourself.

Frank Bothe

Chief Technology Officer

After graduating in physics at the University of Erlangen Frank joined d&b in 1990 and has been steering the company’s technical direction ever since. After starting as developer, Frank was head of Research and Development for many years before he focussed on the company’s medium to long term technology roadmap in his role as chief technology officer.

d&b gave me the chance to make my hobby my profession. Back then, as a twenty-some people company, creating professional loudspeakers was just pure fun. The amazing thing is today, with more than twenty times as many colleagues and all the changes to the way the company is organized we are still excited and driven by that passion about sound. Well, I think we can enjoy it even more now as the results of our work have become globally visible and highly regarded.

Jan Biermann

Head of Research and Development

Jan became Head of Research and Development in August 2017. Before joining d&b, Jan held posts as director of research and development in the semiconductor industry, at companies including NewLogic Technologies in Austria, and the Bosch Automotive Electronics Business Unit in Germany. At his last post, he was responsible for 170 employees in Germany, India, and the Philippines.

Jan holds degrees in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Darmstadt, and in business administration.

The driving force at d&b is curiosity and a passion for sound. I am really excited every single day about working with the team to develop and deliver audio technology solutions that will shape unforgettable collective experiences in the future.
