Career

Dynamic, multidisciplinary and multicultural

Our team is traditionally multidisciplinary. In addition to engineers and economists, we also draw on the expertise of graduates in scientific fields.

What you can expect from us

Personal development & continuing training

Five career levels (professional, senior, expert, senior expert and partner) and a permeable structure enable every employee to advance to a position that matches their abilities and experience.

The entire corporate group sets great store by constant continuing training for employees. In addition to systematically promoting external continuing training courses, one important tool for conveying and entrenching knowledge is the Wüest Partner Academy, which was founded by Wüest Partner, as well as the Datahouse Academy, which was set up for the same reasons.

  • Datenerhebung 2

    Nearest stop

    As efficiently as possible, find the nearest stop for a given geo coordinate.

    The necessary information must be read out of the file haltestelle.in, which has the following structure:

    • Line 1 (given geo coordinate): "X" "Y" (both integers)
    • Line 2: Number of stops: "N" (an integer in the range 1-10000000)
    • Line 3 - N+2 (coordinates for the stops): "X" "Y" (both integers)

    The coordinates of the nearest stop must be written into the file haltestelle.out.

    Sample input (haltestelle.in)

    590 230
    2
    595 200
    400 260

    Sample output (haltestelle.out)

    595 200
  • Game logic

    Implement the logic of the game Nine Men’s Morris so that two players can play against one another while following the rules.

    A GUI is not obligatory. A simple AI player can also be added by way of extension.

  • Single page website

    Use HTML/CSS/JavaScript to create a single-page website in which you describe your CV and/or hobbies.

    The focus must be on clear presentation using modern web technologies and compliance with the relevant standards. Your website can optionally also be made compatible with a mobile browser.

  • Event matching

    Two different live tickers are displaying the score in an ice hockey game. Both sources are incorrect (i.e. goals are missing or the times are imprecise, although you can assume that they are not showing too many goals) and the data should be augmented in order to obtain the best possible data quality.

    The necessary information must be read out of the file events.in, which has the following structure:

    • Line 1 (number of reported goals): “Goals source 1 (N)” “Goals source 2 (M) (both integers in the range 1-100)
    • Line 2 - N+1 (individual goals, source 1): “Team” “Time” (the team is either “H” for home team or “G” for the guests, the time is given as a decimal figure in seconds)
    • Line N+2 - N+M+1 (individual goals, source 2): “Team” “Time” (details as above)

    The output should write to the file events.out the actual number of goals scored (the number in the first line) in the right order, with the team and the time at which they were scored.

    Sample input (events.in)

    3 2
    G 32.1
    G 100.5
    H 60.4
    G 35.3
    H 65.4

    Sample output (events.out)

    3
    G 33.7
    H 62.9
    G 100.5
  • Board game in browser

    Implement a GUI for the board game Nine Men’s Morris directly in a browser using HTML/CSS/JavaScript so that two players can play against each other.

    A check of whether the rules are being followed is not obligatory. However, you should consider how communication with the server side should be integrated.
