What we also appreciate:

  • You have developed your expertise through your own hobby or work projects (e.g. GitHub).
  • You are interested in modern work methods, technologies and practices, and you keep yourself up to date about their latest developments

What we offer in return:

  • A permanent position and a competitive salary
  • Interesting and challenging projects
  • A competent and friendly working community that will support you in the challenges you face at work
  • A working environment that values freedom and responsibility and allows you to become a true expert in the field
  • A workplace where you will always have a caring and competent colleague sitting next to you, who will help you in the challenges you face at work

We strongly believe that everything we have comes from our people . We invest in competence development in various ways, whether this is by sharing experiences through bulletins or more comprehensive training. We also support the well-being of our employees by offering them an extensive package of benefits for both work and leisure time.
