The two sides of your job: between daily thrills and a healthy work-life balance

“The team is the hero” – we develop and refine work processes in cross-functional, self-organising teams of ca. 5 persons.

These three Key Practices shape our actions:

  • Agile promise : We roll out high-quality services in brief intervals and constantly work to improve our processes and ourselves
  • Collective code ownership : Every team member is welcome to and expected to participate – and that includes decision-making processes
  • For us, DevOps isn’t just a buzzword: We actively practice shared responsibility for every link of the tool chain for infrastructure, software quality, delivery and operations. Each of our passionate developers has the opportunity to familiarise themselves with and improve every aspect of our system
