Our team members have very different personalities that – in my opinion – complement each other perfectly. Our priorities are community, teamwork and creativity. We help one another, coordinate closely on our projects and develop ideas together. Our boss, Julia, shares our office. She manages projects but is also a programmer herself. It’s pretty much set in stone that we all take our lunch break at 12:00, and that we hold parties to welcome new colleagues. Outside of work, we try to organise regular trips. Escape rooms, leisure parks, wine festivals, we’ve done it all!
Once a day, usually in the morning, we hold a team meeting to discuss our current projects. But we don’t just work on concepts within our own team – tasks may also be shared among different teams. We maintain constant contact with our other colleagues, such as the Middleware and Business Intelligence teams. We need to be adaptable and diplomatic to work as effectively as possible. We also provide our clients with regular updates, deliver results in good time, and stay flexible to ensure our clients are happy – after all, that’s the most important thing. More information on our projects is available here.
Most of our team members studied business information systems. Naturally, we also welcome people from other disciplines, although experience in IT and software development is advantageous. If you’re particularly interested in programming, then the FinancialSolutions team is the place for you. But don’t worry, we have an extensive onboarding process. You’ll have plenty of time to settle in and receive excellent training, ensuring that nothing stands in your way as you become a professional developer. We are also interested in you as a person. We are looking for people who enjoy working in a team and are prepared to support their colleagues.
Burda is vibrant and Burda is diverse. Every day, I provide our various profit centres with tailored advice on IT recruiting. What processes do we need and who will be the right fit? What job title should we use and what qualities should the perfect candidate have? These are the questions I try to answer in our Munich office or working from home after a coffee on my balcony. And then I start searching for candidates. In the evening I play guitar or do some programming of my own.
