It is important to us to offer a stable and productive working environment. Therefore, we do NOT have all-in contracts, but flexible working hours in a flexitime model and moderate core hours, which makes us a family-friendly employer, among other things.

In addition to the usual festivities in summer and winter, we get together for regular events at team dinners, team breakfasts, sports activities, LAN & release parties and many more occasions. We also facilitate participation in various events to promote talent, knowledge and exchange.


Home office option

Depending on the team and the area of responsibility, you can agree with your manager on the ideal mix of office and home office days.


Gifts for employees

A sweet treat in between, branded shirts or useful gadgets for the home office–we can always think of gifts to please our employees.


Time for individual development

We encourage personal growth and development. Therefore, every employee is invited to use up to 10% of their working time for individual development and training.


Vitamins for everyone

To stay healthy, you will find a colourful mix of fruit and vegetables in our office kitchen at the beginning of the week.
