Hans Angermeier is the founder and Managing Member of CarCareKiosk, a technology Company focused on producing high-quality and vehicle-specific how-to videos for drivers to fix and maintain their cars. Hans’ expertise in car repair has grown over the past decade through his leadership role in the production of over 100,000 how-to videos for vehicle maintenance.
The owner’s manual often doesn’t include enough detail for drivers to fix common problems on their vehicle. CarCareKiosk exists to offer this unmet need by providing clear step-by-step video instruction that is specific to the driver’s vehicle and is a trusted resource for drivers everywhere to do basic vehicle maintenance.
Hans leveraged his expertise and love for cars to create a robust database with over 3.7 million data points and an accompanying algorithm structure to identify what video to show based on the car a user has queried. Hans led the development of a video production framework for car repair videos that provides a consistent look and feel while allowing for the significant variations from one vehicle to the next. Ongoing efforts to enhance best-practices for filming car repair procedures have fostered a simple and clear style that empowers users to fix their cars safely and expeditiously.
Hans has been instrumental in the establishment of partnerships with mechanics and vehicle repair shops both in the United States and Europe to create high-quality how-to videos on an ongoing basis. Hans and CarCareKiosk are trusted by companies across the automotive spectrum and used by partners including: Advance Auto Parts, A/C Pro, Batteries Plus, Cars.com, Energizer, FRAM, Mann + Hummel, Meijer, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Purolator, Sylvania, STP, Walmart, WIX Filters and more.
Hans has been sought after for his expertise in car repair advice and entrepreneurship experience and has been quoted in articles from lifehacker.com, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, clark.com, makeuseof.com, the Awesomer, IB Madison, BizTimes and featured on Kim Komando’s radio show among others. In addition to CarCareKiosk, Hans is a Mentor for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Startup Challenge and a Committee Member of the Sea Scouts Ship 299. Previously, Hans was an investment banker, the President of the Mortar Board Senior Honor Society at Indiana University and has sailed across the Atlantic Ocean on a 49’ sloop.
