We have retained a family working atmosphere that stands for personal relationships, trust and a strong sense of belonging together. We offer our employees the opportunity to use their skills in various areas and to take on a wide range of tasks.

A good work-life balance is very important to us. We operate a 37.5-hour week at our German locations and a 38-hour week at our Austrian location. We also offer flexitime, a home office agreement and ‘Brückentage’ (i.e. optional holidays taken to bridge between a bank holiday and a weekend), at which everyone can take time off on the basis of flexitime.
