This allows you to save on social security contributions and income tax. You end up investing more in your retirement savings than what you miss out on net. Everything happens automatically – including the tax aspect. Secure and intelligent retirement planning!

Corporate Benefits

In the team, there's not only fun but also discounts! Fashion, travel, electronics? We've got it. Thanks to Corporate Benefits, you always save. Why pay more when you can get it cheaper?

You receive a premium or special payment e. g. for new employees who are mediated by you.

Open questions? We’re here to help

In addition, you want to get to the bottom of new things and understand them technically down to the last detail? Your job and your hobby merge at times and the IT is one of your greatest passions? Then you should read on now anyway because it is our goal to make you become an expert who is one step ahead of therest.

If you feel comfortable in a cloud technology like OpenStack, CloudFoundy, AWS, etc. or you know a lot about a virtualization technology like VMware vSphere, then you’re in the right place with us. We will also train you as a cloud engineer or cloud architect.

After about 1 week, you will know whether we want to get to know you. Then you will be invited to an online conversation.

Your document should contain a personal address as well as your CV and your previous qualifications such as school, study, certifications, certificates, etc. A picture of you can also be included in the letter as well as your salary requirements.

After an online conversation via Skype, Zoom or another online tool we will provide you with a simple task. You will bring along the result of the task to a personal conversation in one of our offices. When everything fits, nothing will prevent us from hiring you.

Usually the conversations (online and onsite) take place with you, a potential team leader for your position and a human resources representative.

We evaluate your score using a point system. That is based on your documents, the interview, the personal impression and the result of the small task.

Your application documents will only be made available to the HR department, the management and the potential team leader. All data will be treated confidentially.
