We allow them to keep their data and processes under their control. Therefore, they can determine which solutions they use, optimally adapt their IT to their own needs, and remain independent of specific manufacturers.

Team Lead Software Engineering
My life is ruled by SCRUM and Bugzilla – just kidding. It’s actually quite a dynamic mix of tasks, partly technical but also quite a lot of communication in and between teams. The only fixed date recurring every day are the SCRUM dailies.

Working student internal IT
Even as a working student with less weekly working hours, I always feel involved and am treated as a full-fledged colleague. Therefore I am all the more happy to start working for Univention directly after my studies as IT system engineer.

IT Project Manager
Univention is not a typical hierarchical company. At Univention, being a Project Manager for example is not about hierarchy, but a Project Manager is just another role to make things work.

Our Vision: Creating Digital Sovereignty for the World

The demand for Digital Sovereignty is more urgent than ever. We all leave traces and data on the internet – sometimes voluntarily, but very often without being able to influence it ourselves. Large self-contained cloud platforms collect our data in ever more networked digital structures. We do not know what they use it for, as we are not allowed to see the algorithms of these companies. That means we lose control over our digital identity, the possibility for innovation, competition, and self-determination.

Therefore, our goal is to advance Digital Sovereignty worldwide by raising awareness and enabling a more conscious use of IT. With 100% open-source software and the possibility to decide at any time to whom we hand over which data, we guarantee transparency and control over data, processes, and software. Because only those who have freedom of choice can define who they are and what role they want to play in a digital world. In this way, we not only increase security and trust in IT. Furthermore, we also promote innovative strength and economic independence at all levels.

Our Culture: What makes us tick

At Univention, we cultivate a corporate culture that enables every employee to develop their potential, drive projects forward, develop themselves further and take on responsibility. We meet each other at eye level, respect performance and good ideas and not hierarchies. Our five core values form the basis: openness, integrity, respect, responsibility, and development. We have developed these in a mutual exchange, regularly put them to the test of practical cooperation and constantly develop them further.
