The People Behind HighQSoft

Dr. Ralf Nörenberg



Ralf is a partner of HighQSoft and responsible for the management of the company. His responsibilities reach from being the first contact to the customer, leading potential projects through the sales process up to initiating first specification work.


Ralf’s first contact with HighQSoft was during an internship in the 9th grade, where he developed his first small software components. Throughout his studies of physics at the University of Frankfurt, Germany, he partly worked for HighQSoft as a software developer. To complete his studies away from home and on a different topic, he applied for his PhD studies in electrical engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on the topic of “Efficient Regression Testing of Electric/Electronic Systems”. This work was done in cooperation with Daimler AG where he was employed throughout his thesis to join Research & Development. In the department of “Specification & Test”, he gained experience in both topics while being responsible for the cross-sectional development and appliance of ISO 26262-compliant test concept and test specification templates covering all branches of Daimler AG.


In 2012, Ralf rejoined HighQSoft GmbH as assistant director for sales, marketing, and internal affairs to become a partner with the same responsibilities in 2014.
