Ideas and people are our focus. There is a steady effort to enlarge our network of partners and co-workers with bright people, who share our vision.

"I am aiming for continuous sustainable healthy organisational growth and constantly looking for talent and experience"

Erik Minass, founder and CEO

The aim of Think Tanker is to ease working, learning and living, as well as to enable people to utilize their potential and to improve the situation of our customers.
We use the best available frameworks and services like Laravel and Amazon Cloud to provide cutting edge innovative applications.

Our Services


Process design is the fundament and core of Think Tanker's competencies. We work with our customers to find out what matters most, where IT can support and enable them to work and which human-machine interactions are needed.


We follow best practices and programming and testing guidelines as well as use web technologies and frameworks like Laravel, Bootstrap, Sentinel and many more to develop robust, sustainable, and maintainable software in short time.


We support our clients by selecting and maintaining the best hosting solutions for their needs: be it an VM on an intranet server or a full-fledged (micro-) services solution incorporating PaaS providers, cloud based servers and services.


Design - Develop - Deploy all done in an Scrumban style allows us and our customers to develop, learn and test more and faster. This project management style gives our customers the chance to pivot direction without inflicting extra costs.

Our services are utilized by mid sized to large companies as well as governmental organisations.
