Sebastian – our ‘El Capitan’ has set the course of the Tradeo GmbH since its foundation in 2010. His high level of motivation and his passion for this business have since helped the company flourish. His recipe for success: Take one IT enthusiast and add a large dash of personal and economic skill. As business owner and managing director, he is, of course, responsible for everything and everyone in the Tradeo universe..
We keep a large stock of pre-configured servers ready for immediate shipping, but we also offer customised configurations and hardware upgrades for special requirements. More memory, more disk space or faster processors? We can upgrade to your requirements - on the same day. Our teams are passionate about configuring, testing and carefully packing the systems.
Our team of 6 Sales & Support experts is available for any questions, special requests or personalised offers - by chat, phone or email. And if the datasheets only tell half the truth, we can build the configuration you need in our own support laboratory.
We could go on and on about the environment and pat ourselves on the back for things you have heard and read many times before. Instead, here's a brief overview of what we believe is important and how we contribute.
Refurbishing - The reuse of used server technology slows the growth of e-waste, which is a good start.
Recycling - Properly disposing of defective parts within the country keeps valuable raw materials in the cycle and can be reused.
Sustainability - You should always put your own house in order first. That's why we invest in green technology and renewable energy ourselves, and are willing to pay the premium for the more sustainable option with our suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint.
Social responsibility - Fortune is not evenly distributed in society, which is why we support global charities and local initiatives in our region. We help with financial and in-kind donations democratically chosen by our employees.
Of course, we can't do this without satisfied customers. We supply mainly small and medium-sized businesses, but also large companies from many different sectors and, with pleasure, particularly ambitious private customers. You can take a look at some of our customers in our testimonials.
How do we measure whether we are achieving our goals and where we need to improve? The best way is through feedback from our customers, including Trusted Shops ratings. If something has not gone smoothly, please contact us. We will take care to solve the problem quickly.
Ludwig has various jobs: For one thing, he greets all visitors and employees and he informs us about deliveries and collections as soon as the doorbell rings. In addition, he uses his excellent sense of smell to make sure all meals are of the best quality and he never gets tired of offering his services as a professional meal taster. He is modest enough to accept a pat on the back from his fans in the different departments as a sufficient reward for his good work – and he won’t say no to some treats. At least long as our boss is okay with it, since Ludwig’s weight has a bit of an upwards tendency :-)
As an old hardware hobbyist, Lukas is exactly the right person to advise our customers in the best possible way. But also the processing of returns, maintenance contracts or warranty extensions are his daily bread. On the side, he happily chats with our customers. A real all-rounder this man!
Our hobby boxer Michael helps in our Sales and Support Team to work through the individual requests of our customers quickly and efficiently. Ring free and gum shield in here comes our Michael.
Leonard is passionate about customer service. He welcomes every challenge, both on the job and as a DIY fan when building his own house. And being the cheerful colleague that he is, it's impossible to imagine work without him!
André actively supports our guys in the Sales and Support Team with article maintenance and customer support. With the pace at which our customers shop, there is always plenty to do here!
Ciao, sono Daniele!
Daniele is not only a competent contact person for our customer support, but also a great support for our sales team. He is also able to advise and look after our Italian customers in the best possible way.
You'll find all open positions on tradeo.de/jobs. But whatever floats your boat - if it's hardware, sales or something in between: Let us know and we'll figure out how we can put your photo on this page!
Thomas is our man for marketing. Precise texts are his thing. He fishes for the best formulations for us, and at the weekend he sets his bait for pike and zander.
Our Michael not only takes aim at us, but also at everything we have to offer in terms of products. He puts nothing in the shade and shows everything from the best side!
Susann manages our logistics department with great accuracy. Wherever she appears, she is "present" and spreads good humour to everyone with her fresh manner. Her experience in the warehouse makes her a real jack-of-all-trades.
Our Amanda takes on every package. She is our new whirlwind in logistics and steers our servers correctly around the world. If only the post office were as fast as she is.
Patrick is our "server whisperer"! He not only knows what our servers want, but they also feel "in good hands" with him, which is definitely due to his iron training.
Erich keeps a sharp eye on our servers! He is our specialist for security. Due to his great experience, our servers are thus in good hands and are safely picked, safely rebuilt and safely packed, that's for sure!
Julian strengthens our technology team with his "know how". Above all, as a passionate beekeeper, nothing can upset him, even if it is sometimes like being in a beehive!
Hans is our master of receipts, payments, and refunds. He never misses any faulty receipts, transposed figures or open positions. So he’s a typical boring accountant? Far from it! In the summer, our Hans has gasoline running in his veins and he loves to go on tours on his gigantic machine – he has decades of experience when it comes to biking!
Mehmed is a real all-rounder. With his know-how, he could serve several departments at the same time in addition to accounting. Top-motivated as he is, he would even manage that.
Our Hildegard, as assistant to the management, is an indispensable support for Sebastian. She is an organizational talent, never shies away from a new task or a new topic, and even gets the web store back in order when a setting in the machine room is stuck. No matter what is going on, Hildegard gets stuck in!
Any uncertainties? Then Manfred!! Do you need help? Then Manfred! He leads the warehouse team with great precision and expertise and is also happy to take care of all matters beyond that. His everlasting helpfulness and cordial manner make him so popular not only in his department.
Ramona helps the warehouse team with all the work that needs to be done. Of course, it is especially important that every product is in the right place. With 166,000 products stored, we are infinitely glad that our Ramona also keeps track.
When the correct things, the right quantity, at the right time and with the right handle come together everywhere, there are two possibilities: Either Taner is in the warehouse and takes care of our goods there, or he whips up something in his kitchen to take back to the office the next day and make a posting to our hip inventory. In both cases, it's a win-win for everyone!
Our Daniela has a knack for stock-keeping! Skilfully and confidently she whirls between the shelves and makes sure that everything is correctly placed and booked.
Stefan heads our technology department. As skillfully as he "leads" hops at home, he also manages it with his colleagues, so that everyone goes above and beyond.
Hardware shell, software core! Steffen is a real machine when it comes to building, repairing and software configuration of the servers! Our all-round talent also has an eye for optimization when he's not on his motorcycle!
Anna professionally dismantles old servers, sorts out parts that are still usable and disposes of the rest professionally. She juggles the screwdriver just as confidently as she used to juggle her drumsticks. Since she started playing on the handpan, our servers also get their caresses.
Theo is passionate about his work, he disassembles and configures every server in no time. He demonstrates his dexterity and confidence just as he does on his drums at home. And best of all: he appreciates our used servers just as much as his love of classic cars.
Our Carmine has become an integral part of our technical team after only a short time. Privately an artist through and through, be it as an actor or guitarist, he can skilfully adapt to any technology and looks forward to any challenge. Hats off!
Christian comes to work with his beloved Ape. He is our young blood in the technology team, yet an expert in server technology. He keeps an eye on everything to make sure it works as well as he does on his aquaristics at home.
Hans is our facility manager. He takes care of all the manual issues around the company premises. Whether the greenery needs to be trimmed or a new light bulb is needed - our Hans is on the spot!
