About our company culture

We set out own standards, regarding company culture and work climate. A traditional 9 to 5 job in a grey office? Not here!

Self-determined salary

Salary negotiations are a thing of the past, for we have developed a fair, transparent and comprehensible salary system. Everyone earns as much, as he/she wants to work for our clients. Everyone can decide how much time is spent on own ideas, personal development and vacation.


We regularly work at different places. Of course, we see each other at our office in Hamburg, but to reinforce our team spirit, we have a retreat of at least two weeks a year, amongst various team events. At our retreat, we work, undisturbed from our daily routine, on our company culture and own ideas.
