About Prodrive Technologies
A passion for technology
In close cooperation with our clients, we develop and deliver a wide range of highly competitive products, systems and solutions, employing techniques that are extremely efficient and often unique. We do everything in-house, we cover virtually every conceivable market and we use the very latest process techniques, many of which we have developed ourselves. As a result of this innovative approach, we are among the fastest-growing technology companies in Europe.
As a private-owned company, we aim to provide more than just shareholder satisfaction. We operate under a healthy ambition to be of relevance, and to contribute to meaningful innovation that tackle major challenges in society.
We create technologies that are essential links in the systems which form the basis for today’s and tomorrow’s world. Our technology, for instance, improves the quality of medical imaging, which allows for diagnostics that recognize diseases earlier and more accurately. Our technologies also contribute to reducing the global dependency on fossil fuels and to minimizing human exposure to air pollution. Another example is the contribution of our technologies to global digitalization, which lowers barriers for people in third world countries wishing to access the information and education that are essential for their welfare.
Therefore, our joint mission is to create meaningful technologies that make the world work.
Those who come into contact with our company always refer to the way our people have remarkable passion and ambition. Our people are inspired by our unique culture, with a strong focus on the values Equality, Responsibility and Trust.
From the first day at work, the input of each new employee is respected and everyone is treated as equal. Our organization is extremely flat, consists of self-coordinating teams, and we strive to continue eliminating bureaucracy, despite our ever-increasing scale. Management roles are limited and privileges are non-existing.
Instead of seniority, our criteria for responsibility are ability and ambition. We do not believe in tasks or junior roles. We encourage people to pitch new initiatives and we provide them with the freedom they need to realize their personal growth ambitions. What’s more, our entrepreneurial business model features an appetite for taking end-to-end responsibility and the required risks involved in order to become successful.
Finally, we believe that people are inclined to live up to their potential most when they are stimulated by trust in their abilities. Our processes are lean and extremely effective, communication lines are short, and procedures do not include extensive approval steps. What makes this way of working most remarkable is that, despite their lean character, all processes comply with the strictest industry norms and standards. Thanks to our efficient processes, customers and other stakeholders can rely on the security and confidentiality of information at all times.
We cannot achieve success without a culture of ambitious people who take full responsibility for their work and share a passion for technology. Our results and growth do not just fall into our laps. We take our work very seriously. We take initiative, we take on risk, we seize opportunities and persevere to the very last moment, which may sometimes fall outside of office hours. The human element, is what makes our model work.
