RIIICO was founded in 2021 by three long-term friends – Patrick Mertens, Jan Büchsenschütz and Felix Fink. Since then it has been on a mission to enable the next generation of factory digital twins and grown to a pioneering team. From day one, RIIICO has been closely cooperating with industry leading companies supporting their ambitions to get a foothold in the industrial metaverse. These co-creational efforts together with global innovators have been driving the team to frequently break new grounds fostering a culture of flexibility, quick learning and challenging but fruitful team work. In everyday work life this means that we have few meetings, give lots of ownership to everyone and focus, first and foremost, on the customer and the product.

Felix, Co-Founder & CEO – I drive the product, continuously searching for ways to increase our customers’ value.
Back in 2021, we started RIIICO in the middle of COVID-19: The manufacturing industry had to reinvent itself. Remote engineering and digitalized workflows became vital needs of our industry. Combined with the upcoming revolution in reality-capturing techniques, the timing for us just felt right.
Starting the company with just two restless friends from university, it is imposing to see what it transformed into in such a short period: A team of diverse but at the same time like-minded superstars from around the globe. Working with that team, you will be impressed by how fast unique concepts become vivid in just days.
Orkun, DataOps Engineer
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I joined this startup. But from day one, I was impressed by the level of responsibility and autonomy I was given. I get to work on challenging tasks handling large amounts of data. The team is passionate and driven, and we all work together to achieve our goals. I’m excited to be part of a company that is changing the game in the manufacturing industry.
Patrick, Co-Founder & CTO – I guide our tech development & research, solving the challenges our customers and product vision pose for us.
With the rise of 3d scanning technology and breakthroughs in deep learning, we found a great fit to tackle the problems of modern manufacturing. We knew it was an incredibly complex domain and task, but we saw the path. 3D data, AI research & industry applications – it was all there and just needed to be conjoined.
We don’t stop at problems we don’t have an immediate solution for. When we know we need to get something solved, we work together and push through – until the problem is solved, the feature is developed, the bugs are fixed.
My favorite thing about working at RIIICO is having ownership of what I do. This goes along with the many learning opportunities from doing something new every day and a team from whom I can learn a lot. An atmosphere of open communication within the team makes all this a lot easier.
Jan, Co-Founder & COO
Manufacturing is one of the most vital parts of the German economy. From small to large factories, over the past years, many have seen increasing challenges such as an aging workforce and frequent changes in customer demand. I wanted to contribute to finding an innovative solution by creating a product-focused, customer-centric company that keeps up with the fast-changing manufacturing environments.
We pride ourselves on having a people-driven team culture with a strong customer-first approach. Our international all-stars team is eager to change the world of manufacturing bringing tons of brilliant and creative ideas to the company.

Working at RIIICO really sparked my entrepreneurial spirit. I am working on a variety of tasks getting valuable insights into hands-on business and product development in the context of a subscription-based deep-tech business model. This is particularly engaging as the team brings in a unique set of skills making it possible to tackle difficult obstacles together on a daily base.

At RIIICO, you have the freedom to express your approach, thoughts, and solution. The whole team is very supportive and lets you develop at a pace you feel comfortable with.
