Unprecedented growth

Xing defends its position as market leader in the German-speaking area. The professional network now has more than 12 million members. Around 1.8 million new members registered with the platform during the last business year, as many as never before in one year.

2016 was a record year for Xing. Xing’s total turnover amounted to €148.5 million last year, being 21 per cent higher than the year before (€122.9 million).


“We currently register unprecedented membership growth at Xing. This proves impressively that a profile at the leading professional network is simply a necessity in the modern working world. We regard the growth as an incentive to keep developing the services and products that help our members satisfy their professional wishes, develop their potential and simply have a better working life.”

Thomas Vollmoeller, CEO of XING AG
