Here’s what we are looking for in a candidate:

  • Frontend skills are a plus (jQuery / Bootstrap)
  • You’re a good communicator for both internal and client concerns
  • You have an eye for security aspects
  • Our working language is English, but you should have basic German skills and/or be eager to improve them

How we work

Everybody’s contributions are honored and we entrust you with responsibilities from day one. Many challenges – small and large – are yours to take.
We deliver continuously, synchronize often (standups, code review) and integrate our customers and the whole team into the development process. We are tool agnostic and leave it up to you to choose the best framework/library/editor for the job.
Our working language is English but we are happy to help you learn German. Our staff is permanent and works 4 to 5 days a week. Overtime is kept to a minimum.
